Plus anyone player who would cross the picket line would be absolutly stigmitized by the Players Union. How can some kid from the AHL who has high hopes of playing in the NHL ever play another game in the League again after crossing a picket line.
If he's good nobody is gonna care what he did, no team is gonna ostracize a guy who could be a 30-40 goal scorer because he crossed the picket lines as an AHLer.
