The best way to prevent future lockouts is to work with the league to grow the game to the point where most of the league is profitable. Only then will the NHL have no incentive to lock the players out
That's assuming each side acts in a reasonable manner and doesn't get overly greedy, wanting more of the revenue pie or more contracting control. Haven't seen too much of that yet.
I'm of the opinion that the owners, with the additional games now being canceled, will not put the 'make whole' sum (reported to be around $300 million) back on the table as they had last week. If that's the case, i don't see the players agreeing to a new CBA for this season. Hope i'm wrong, but this negotiation just seems to have gotten off the rails.
