If you want to single out a few individuals, start with Jacobs and Snider. Great to back up your teammate but make sense if you do it.
The point is that guys near the end of their careers and players currently trying to earn an NHL roster spot are not benefiting from a prolonged lockout.

Players who are comfortable financially in the middle of their contracts have the luxury of waiting around and beating the PA drum.

Only way this lockout will end is if more players speak up.
