If they didn't lock out the players then the players would have gone on strike in the later stages of the season. Would you prefer to miss the beginning of the season? or the Stanley Cup Playoffs?

The deal worked seven years ago and now it doesn't. Why can't the owners change their mind about what works for the league they own/run?
