Bring on the Lawyers

The NHL has filed an unfair labor practise complaint with the US National Labor Relations Board. Information can be found here.

The complaint is an "apparant NHLPA policy" (legally what is an apparant policy?) that players who recieved stipends from the NHLPA during the lockout who appear as replacement players in the NHL will be asked to pay them back. This seems to me to be a nuisance lawsuit filed mostly to threaten the NHLPA and to gage whether or not the Labor Relations board will be friendly to them in their more important impasse cases.

At any rate, any pretence of civility on the NHL's part in this lockout is now gone.
