If there's a full season lockout, one also has to take into consideration that not every NHLer will find a substitute team to play in. Besides the insurance costs which hamper any player with a big contract, there are only so many extras clubs can fit into their rosters. I'm pretty sure none of them are looking to replace their whole squads.

If for example Crosby stays in the sidelines for the whole season and has nothing but beer hockey to keep him in shape, he may not be so eager to jump out of the cold into a highly competitive tournament.
