Once this is over, the NHLPA needs to have internal discussions to decide how to deal with the next lockout, which Jeremy Jacobs and Gary Bettman are probably planning for 2017 or 2018.

Two suggestiosn:
- A system of heavy fines to deal with twitter abusers and solidarity-breakers like Hamrlik.
- A better opening strategy. They should have done what the NHL did: have a high first offer and negotiate down. Their first offer was 54%. It should have been high enough to neutralize the NHL's 43% offer.
