There will be a lockout imo but the key negotiation will probably take place the Monday after Thanksgiving...they'll try in earnest to get a deal in place so starting in January they can get back playing.....and salvage a season. Few key points why it will get done

The top players over 30 will put pressure on the union; other leagues have blueprints already in place for the NHL to use; the Broons will no doubt lose players and see a significant drop in payroll (this roster would cost $60 mil to bring back next year) but in the end the Broons are young and talented; they should barring injuries and bad luck be a top team for the forseeable future.
