I'm sure there is some reason why the owners wouldn't consider this, but people's jobs are on the line here!

I know for a fact that O'Connor's Irish Pub in Kanata almost lost nearly a million dollars in revenue during the last lockout. I imagine bars/pubs all around north america suffered similar fates...
There is also the fact that if the league doesn't lock the players out and they extend the deal then the players could strike during the season. Only way they could've pulled it off was if both teams signed a contract stating no lockouts/strikes.
