Why can't the NHL do this?

And do you tell your boss how much money you should be making or you won't show up for work? I always thought that people that aren't happy with their salaries usually look for another job instead of going on strike..
I'm not on Bettman's side in this case, but the union is asking for far too much too, and I do believe that in order for the league to survive, they need some kind of cap. Whether that cap is reached with union approval or not, I don't care, I just want hockey back.
Now I obviously don't know much about the labour laws so I guess my original post in this thread wouldn't work, but if they did reach the impasse, I would love for the league to just implement the rules they want, and then those players that want to join would be welcome to do so. I'm sure a lot of guys would tell the union to F off and go for the NHL, it's not like they'd be making peanuts or anything.
Look at European soccer, there are no player unions, and every league has it's own rules, yet, somehow they manage to trade players between each other, and everybody is happy.
