Well, this is apparently gonna be a big issue in the current CBA negotiations.
Hopefully the two sides get creative in the bargaining and each side is willing to give a little to get a little. Hopefully neither side thinks they're gonna hit a home run by being inflexible. The expiring CBA was an example of both sides being flexible and working together to keep the league going without a stoppage, although neither side was totally happy with it.
We'll see what happens. The object to me is to keep going without a stoppage, both sides will eventually win in that event. But you never know how stubborn and irrational people can get over $$$$$$$$.
