I'm all for anything that reasonably ends the lockout, and guarantees labour peace for a while. That will require fixing the underlying issues, and that won't happen if the owners share the mentality you've espoused above.
Pain now will lead to a net sum of more total hockey.

I'd rather have a permanent fix than another moronic band-aid that leads us to "labor peace for a while", which in reality just means another Union mafia extortion strike in 5 or 6 years. I've seen this movie before, and not only does the ending suck, but I'm sick of watching it.

The NHL is not very financially sound business. Something needs to be done, and paying out 60% of revenues (or more) to employees was never a solvent solution.
