I think if there's a 20% drop in revenues, then there's every guarantee that a lockout/strike would most definitely happen again. The owners will be convinced that its the only way they can survive with even less revenue while the players are still in la-la land thinking they can demand the same contracts as NBA or NFL players.

The only way for there to be no lockout/strike again is for the league (and every team) to be so profitable that they can afford the outrageous player demands. Or have a hard cap that ensures profitability.
