A quick online search, shows that although the NFL extended the CBA by 8 days, they still locked out the players at the expiration of the CBA. One of the key differences is that the NFL training camp didn't start the following week. Had the NHL attempted this, players would have been in camp by the time the league locked out the players. If anything, of the 3 leagues, the NHL had more reasons to lock out the players than either of the other 2 leagues.

The NBA locked their players out the moment the CBA expired. NBA's training camp starts in Sept.

But good job trying to show that the NHL is somehow different than the other leagues in locking the players out.
