This was hardly peace, what happened in the NFL in the late 80's is the worst case scenario for any NHL lockout. The only difference is that the prior terms are favorable to the players, instead of the league, which it was in the NFL debacle.
I already covered the litigation angle from the NFLPA and how PT bridged the gap to bring labor peace to the NFL.
