How is it going to happen to them? It's against the CBA. If the players had gone on strike during the CBA the owners could have sued them and it puts them in a bad position if a mediator gets called in. The only way they players could have gone on strike is if they'd done so the moment the CBA expired, and then we'd have a fun "You can't lock me out, I'm on strike/You can't strike, you're locked out!" situation.

Strikes have been prohibited since the 1994-5 lockout in Article 7 of both CBAs. I imagine they'll continue to be prohibited.

Down in the basement, I've got a Craftsman lathe. Show it to the children when they misbehave.
