After word broke that the NHLPA Executive Board had voted to give the union membership a vote to authorize a disclaimer of interest (which is essentially identical to de-certification, but requires far fewer steps), the NHL got pre-emptive and filed a class-action lawsuit in federal court to have the lockout declared legal and that any such disclaimer filing would be illegal. The NHLPA is certain to file a counter-suit.

This is going nuclear, and unless there is a swift resolution, this could easily impact next season, too.
