Listen in as Gary Bettman and the league announce the end of the lockout!
Hooray! The lockout is over!
Unfortunately, because you coerced the Players' Association into caving to all of the league's demands, without securing any benefit for the players, you have merely ensured continued labor unrest going forward, guaranteeing future work stoppages. Your failure to negotiate a mutually beneficial agreement simply relegates the league to perpetual failure.
You have ended the lockout, but you have lost the game.
