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.
Oh, so the NHL union members will just take the job of some lower level schmuck player, whether he's union or not... and chances are the minor league player needs the money a lot more than the NHL player.

Nice!
