That's simply not true.
You can find quotes today from Winnik (who is on the negotiating committee) that it's to get negotiations going. Kessel saying that since it worked for NBA and NFL he's hoping it would work here.
The players aren't looking at this as a nuclear option. No quote over several months seems to suggest this. They view it just as something that will get them leverage in the negotiations.
