First of all, I'm not sure I would consider 2 months before the playoffs as "strike during the playoffs".

Second of all, Bob Goodenow used the tactic of striking just before the playoffs before Fehr when the NHLPA went on strike on April 1, 1992.

However, I will concede that if you consider 2 months before the playoffs as "just before the playoffs" or as you stated, "during the playoffs", then Fehr did use the approach as acting director of the MLBPA in August, 1985 when the players struck for two days.
