But since we're doing this now, I want the right set of circumstances to happen to hopefully prevent it from happening in the future.
I agree with the above statements. Unfortunately, I don't think the cycle will be broken if the players show backbone this time. I think they showed pretty good backbone last time in sacrificing a year.

This cycle will only be broken with new leadership in both the commissioner's chair and the NHLPA, but especially the former. Ideally, there has to be a commish who understands both the owner's and the player's perspective and tries to look out for the interests of both sides.

One name that comes to my mind is Ken Dryden, but I don't know if he'd ever do it.
