I would much rather lose this whole season and have the NHL and the PA come to an agreement that they both feel is fair and leads to a long period of no labor stoppages then get a 48 game schedule this year, 5 years of hockey and then another lockout because the current CBA didn't fix the issues.
There's a deal out there that is fair to both sides and won't do any damage. The owners are just refusing to propose it because they want their 5 year max deal, which is a ridiculous thing to hold out for IMO.
