I think there is a lot of natural turnover every season. There is always going to be players retiring and AHL/NHL tweeners that don't get a shot again no matter if there is a lockout or not.
But on a basic level it is of course true that the average NHLPA member don't have that many paychecks in his career and any work stoppage is doing economic damage that can't be undone.

I think it's important to note that the NBA players didn't actually decertify. They just agreed to vote on it in the future.
