But the term of this Agreement has expired... What I imply this statement to mean is that before the expiration date of the agreement, the NHL cannot engage in a lockout...

It is clear that the NHL could legally lockout the players after the expiration date... It is my understanding that instead of a lockout, it could have been 'business as usual' while both sides continue negotiations...

If both are legal, I don't understand why 'a bit of both' can't be...
