For now, I'm happy pointing out that your exact sentiment was widely expressed in the last lockout, and it turned out the PA as a whole did magnificently better with the post-lockout deal than they would have with the pre-lockout offer on the table. It's not even close - the lockout paid for itself several times over in the subsequent years.
Time will tell how it plays out this time...but the first step is seeing the actual deal that they all actually agree to and start playing under.
