A lot of the players are making money even if there's no NHL season.

The pay of other leagues, relative to the NHL, is better than it's ever been.

During the last work stoppage, players didn't have as many options as they have today. Guy's that are going over to the KHL right now are getting paid a significant amount of money. The players can afford to wait things out longer than they did last time. It could be a long, long time be we ever see an NHL game again.
