As was mentioned earlier; Playoff revenues are included in HRR. That means players would receive 57% of those revenues. After the playoffs, players either receive one last additional cheque, or they write one themselves. How would it benefit the players in striking at that point? It wouldn't.
Hockey isn't being played because the owners wanted to start negotiations 10 months before they actually started, and the NHLPA wanted no part in that. I was very much on the players side before finding that out.
