They can play in any other league rather than the NHL or AHL, which basically means...WHA, EURO leagues etc.

And what we are talking here is semantics. It is just as much the players not wanting to agree to a new offer that the owners are putting forth as the owners not agreeing to the status quo.

The only reason it is being called a lockout is that the players are willing to continue working under the previous agreement, and the owners are not. The owners are no more at fault in this than the players.(And some of us think less so.)
