They had t lock the players out, there really is no option otherwise. If they do not, then the players have zero reason to negotiate, and lets face it, they are not really trying to negotiate even after a lockout. And secondly, they can strike before the playoffs.

This time around the league has not said (to my knowledge) that they lose less by not playing. Everyone seems in agreement they are losing more by not playing. But its not the short loss these guys care about, its the losses that accumulate over years.
