Of coarse i would prefer this to happen without a lock out but that might not be possible.

Honest question though: is there any indication that an extended bargaining process, or a lockout, works in favour of the long term viability of the Jets i.e. as opposed to hammering out something here and now?
I ask because I see this forming as a consensus, and TBH I can't be bothered to look into this process with too much effort because each time I consider how millionaires and billionaires are fighting over the middle class's money, the inner ice-hockey-road-hockey-cheering-on-the-Jets child inside me dies a little bit more.
