from Aaron Ward of TSN,
The NHL Players' Association is seeking permission to sue the state of Tennessee on behalf its membership and get reimbursed for a special tax that players must pay each time they play a game in Nashville.
Since the 2009-2010 season, the state has taxed NHL players $2,500 - with an annual cap of $7,500 - under a 'Professional Privilege Tax' each time they were on their club's playing roster for a game in Nashville.
The Players' Association believes this is unfair and possibly unconstitutional, saying a player making the league minimum would in fact lose money playing there and would be better off financially by not playing.
