That would be the incentive for a strike at that time.
They can't go on strike before the POs, the CBA is signed through september. They have no reason to go on strike this year. Pretty sure they could get sued if they ever did. People can hate Bettman for various reasons, but the man is not an idiot. He's a very smart lawyer.
Players make zero dollars from salary in the POs. Their pay is only for the regular season.
