Because it's against Canadian labour law for employers who have locked out their employees to hire temporary workers. So 7 of the 30 teams wouldn't be able to play.
Moreover, it's a huge PR victory for the players. The NHL is about entertainment - nothing says 'the players are an important part of the NHL' like watching ECHL scrubs playing in the NHL. It'd be sacrilege.
