So in a situation where there are replacement players where do these players come from? The AHL.. So that who plays in the AHL? Guys from the ECHL? fine who plays in the ECHL? Rec League players?
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.
I think you would see players cross the line if the owners wait out a whole year and have the owners keep the same proposition they have now for next year, don't blink and allow anybody to play. I think guys who have one year or two years left would be tempted.
