What is immoral about deciding you are prepared to work for less than you used to? Absolutely nothing. If Player X is happy to play for $2m instead of $3m then good luck to him. Its his personal choice to make. If Player Y is unhappy to play for $2m instead of $3m good on him too since that's his choice.

The NHLPA is making a business decision by not signing what the NHL offers them. The players believe no one can do their jobs, their betting on it. If the NHL gets replacement players the ex-NHLers should accept the replacement players taking their jobs with grace. This is business after all and both sides are duking it out.
