It would be idiocy.
(Please don't make me defend either of these sides - I can't stand the crap both of them are making us fans deal with. Again).
Well, there would certainly be a lot more hockey this year if they had, for one. And as I pointed out, there were extenuating circumstances in the MLB strike that aren't in play for the NHL.

In the end, the people who actually initiate the stoppage are the ones who should be held accountable.

Neither side would agree to extend an agreement that wasn't working for one side for more than 2 years previous.
Benefits the players a little too much for the owners' liking, anyway.
