All of those leagues have unions. I think he's referring to what happens with the draft if the PA decertifies for good (which I think is highly unlikely). I can see the reasoning behind their thought that no union and no CBA would mean that the draft eligible players will be recruited on a team by team basis which gives the top draft prospect a lot of leverage in choosing and negotiating their first NHL contract.
