08:17 AM ET 09.12 | In terms of a game plan, Jason Spezza wonders whether a lockout wasn't part of the NHL's forecast all along. While the Senators centre was on the ice for an informal workout Tuesday at the Bell Sensplex, he was back in Ottawa only long enough to pack his bags for a trip to New York on Wednesday to attend NHLPA meetings. ... [Spezza] wondered if shutting down the NHL is the owners' way to get the players to give in to a new deal. "A lockout is supposed to be a last option. It seems like a negotiating tactic for them," said Spezza. "They got what they wanted last time (with a salary cap) and it didn't work. ... "I don't feel the league has given us a fair offer yet that's even worth considering, so there's nothing that we can even look at."

Get used to it. After this week, all we'll get will be lockout threads.
