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.
You left an important date. When did the NHL CBA expire?
