Ok say next year replacements are brought in to play a season,. and slowly but surely, NHL players are trickling over the line to play in the league. In terms of "Unions" .. do players who cross the line, are they automatically thrown out of the union after the lockout is over? I've heard rumors if players break the lines, its an automatic breach of contract with the PA and they will never be allowed back in . tell me if this is wrong, or whatever.. thanks though.
