Pretty much the lockout got this far because neither side really had anything to lose by locking out in the offseason.

Now the lockout is continuing because each side says "well we came this far."

It's a paradox.

Really, whoever decided that the previous CBA would expire on September 15, less than a month before the season starts, is a moron. The CBA should expire July 1. But I guess the NHLPA wouldn't go for that because that leaves alot of UFA's unemployed. Then again, that wold be some incentive to get a deal done.
