Work stoppage not necessary if NHLPA had started negotiating in earnest when invited to a year or go or anytime in the past few months.

Lockout is par for the course with any League now to avoid a strike before playoffs.
The league needed to bring down the player compensation and close some loopholes.
Bettman has had a big hand in saving some teams including the Sens and in growing the league. He also takes on all the venom that would normally be directed to the owners.

He will retire within the next 10 years anyway so likely wont be around for the next CBA, but unless the PA start negotiating earlier in earnest next time we will just see all the vilification aimed at Daly instead or whoever comes next.
