In the end, the NHLPA’s last bargaining agreement with the league is a disaster, and its only hope of survival comes from a new collective bargaining agreement that has yet to be drafted.
The NHL’s players will be without their players for at least another season and potentially longer.
The union is in no mood to have the clock run down, but if it can’t agree on a deal this week, it may not have much of a chance of reaching a deal to keep its players.
The first phase of the new CBA was signed Wednesday, but the players haven’t heard anything about the second phase.
That’s because the union won’t agree to a final CBA until after the 2017-18 season begins, which means the players can’t vote on the new collective-bargaining agreement until after that.
The league won’t have a choice but to sign off on the second round of the CBA as well.
It’s a decision that will be the final one for the league’s players, and the first for the union as a whole.
In a sense, the players have made the first choice, and it’s their decision whether to accept it.
It was the players’ choice to go ahead with a strike this year because the league didn’t have the power to negotiate the deal they wanted to sign.
The players had to accept the new agreement, but they didn’t want to have to vote again.
If the union doesn’t agree with the union’s first choice of a CBA, the league can’t negotiate the CBD in the new deal, which could lead to a lockout.
The lockout would force the NHL to change its business model and take the business of the league outside of the NHL.
That would be a tough sell.
There are two big issues that would have to be resolved for the players to be satisfied with a deal.
First, the CBL would have the league and its owners in a position to have a say in everything from player health to the salary cap.
Second, the union would have a chance to negotiate a new deal that included some sort of salary cap increase.
This is an important question for the owners to consider.
If it doesn’t happen this week and the players continue to fight for their jobs, the owners could try to force the league to give in on some of its demands.
In that case, it would be possible for the NHL and its players to strike again, but it would require that the owners agree to the new salary cap, which would mean that the league would have an unfair advantage.
The CBA also includes a clause that the players would have veto power over the salary-cap numbers that would be negotiated in the CNBA, the new league the league hopes to start next season.
If there was a lockout, that would give the players a significant advantage in the bargaining table, which might be enough to sway the owners.
The owners can’t control everything, but by voting to approve a CBL this week the players will have a shot to make the case to their owners that they want a more fair salary cap system.
If they win that battle, they could have a stronger bargaining position in the negotiations for a new CBL.
If a lockout does happen, the only thing that would likely happen is the league will have to change the way it negotiates contracts, and that will likely be in a new contract.
But the league could still decide to keep the status quo and the status of the players in the eyes of its players and its fans.
It may even decide to cut ties with the players.
It will be difficult for the NFL, which is already struggling financially, to do so without losing its players, but that won’t be an option for the rest of the leagues.
That means the NHL will be able to get a better deal on the CBP, but will have the option to do things differently than the rest.
It is hard to say what will happen in a lockout situation, because there are no clear lines of demarcation between the players and the owners, but there are several things that the NHL can do to change.
For one, it could make concessions to its players on some issues.
One thing the NHL has been able to do is make concessions in recent years to get more players into the league, a move that has resulted in some positive outcomes for the game.
For instance, players have gotten a pay increase and have more autonomy in negotiating salary-caps.
The salary cap was one of the issues the players were pushing for in the lockout negotiations, and they were able to make concessions on the salary caps.
The new CBD would also allow the NHLs players to have more say over what the salary numbers should be.
This would give them more power to get concessions on salary caps, which will likely have an impact on the number of games the league plays.
The number of teams in the NHL could
