Just because the CBA gives the owners an out if they negotiate a different CBA, doesn't mean it's any less of a crappy move to sign a bunch of contracts right before a lockout without the intention of ever honoring them. It destroys trust between the two parties and makes already bad relations even worse. Bettman and the owners have clearly poisoned the well at least three times during this debacle...all of it was avoidable, and only served to damage negotiations. If you're a car salesman and you intentionally sell someone a lemon, they're going to be malcontent if they have to deal with you to get a new car right after it fails. The same applies here.
