The owners will have their other interests, and the players can play elsewhere, maybe not making as much, but they aren't exactly hurting or working a 9-5.
The NHL is already the most irrelevant pro sport in the US, and it's getting totally pissed away.
I agree with your sentiment (which I find to be rapidly growing in popularity), and especially the bolded. That part is often overlooked in all this. The people who are really suffering as a result of the lockout are the ones with the least amount of leverage and the most to lose. It's really too bad.
