I imagine the owners could be persuaded to avoid locking the players out if the players union signs a no-strike pledge. One of Fehrs most basic tactics is arranging for strikes near the playoffs and I'm sure if this season were to start under the expired CBA, that would be the owners greatest fear.
So I think unless the players sign a no-strike pledge, it is all but a certainty the owners will lock out the players at some point.
