Actually, I don't believe NHL players should seek employment elsewhere...

I understand what you are saying regarding them being "locked-out" by the owners but let's face it...the owners only locked them out because they don't have a CBA. The players were free to start negotiations at any time...they chose to wait until the 11th hour. Both sides wanted this.

I just feel sorry for the poor schlubs in other leagues who have lost jobs to NHL players who should've been playing in NHL. Call it what you want and feel free to disagree...but I've lost a ton of respect for any NHL player seeking a job elsewhere instead of demanding their boss get the CBA issue resolved ASAP.
