The major difference was that the original terms favored the owners so they continued to play under them. That's it.
Making 2 years of bickering and litigation and the utter destruction of a players union into a peaceful scenario, I am not quite sure how you can do that.
Plan B was deemed illegal, but as I already covered, it was White's case that brought both sides back to the bargaining table. This is when PT negotiated the deal that FINALLY brought labor peace to the NFL and was renewed up to 2008.
