The players floated this to paint the owners as the bad guys. Everybody knows the NHL won't allow the season to start without a CBA. The players just wanted to make it clear it wasn't them who wouldn't play without a new deal.

But as little leverage as the owners have, they'd have even less if the season started on schedule under the old CBA. The players will play forever under the current CBA, so they'd have no reason to even talk about a new one.
