NHL lockout goes for broke: Players on verge of dissolving union

Reuters / Brendan McDermid

NHL Players' Association members have voted to give their union's executive board the power to file a 'disclaimer of interest' until January 2. The move may soon dissolve the union, after which players could return for the remainder of the season.

The vote drew more than the two-thirds of the needed support, though none of the union's officials commented on the issue, Canadian media reported.Once the disclaimer is filed, the union will be dissolved and become a trade association. Players would then be allowed to file antitrust lawsuits against the NHL.

Last year, the NBA lockout was ended in a similar move.The stalemate in negotiations between the NHL and the players’ union has already resulted in the cancellation of all games until at least January 14. If more cancellations are made, the entire season could be called off.(source)
