Wouldnt mind another lockout?

33 posts in this topic

I know that missing hockey for an ENTIRE year would be absolutely horrible and would pretty painful for alot of players and fans, but it would give us shot to get the 1st overall pick and draft Nathan Mackinnon just like how the Penguins drafted Crosby when they won that 30 team lottery. I know it's a pretty stupid idea but it would be pretty exciting. But if we were to end up with something like the 30th pick id be pissed.

Would you rather have Nathan MacKinnon or a shot at the Stanley Cup? Our team isn't getting any younger.

Edmonton would win the lottery and get the 1st overall, we'd get the 29th.

Or we could miss a full season of watching hockey as fans, another year without a Cup (with the clock ticking on our high end talent), and pick #28 anyway.

Yep, sounds like a plan to me.

Ya! Let's not watch any Canucks because of a 1/30th chance of having 1st overall!

I honestly think at least a partial work stoppage would be the best thing for the NHL. 82 games for the regular season is far too long anyways. Start the season up on January first with the outdoor game and I would be happy.

Simple, trade Luongo to Toronto for a package that includes the Leafs' first rounder ;)

True hockey fans don't like having less hockey.

Much less the only excuse to having it is to hope for a random lottery pick to get first overall.

It doesn't work like that.. I can't remember the exact details but there was still some kind of higher odds for sh*tty teams. I think all non playoff teams got more balls in the draw and there was some way to take away balls if u had 1st overall picks in last 3yrs.. I dunno, google it cus I can't remember but I'm sure our chances are pretty slim if that happened

Missing the entire season for a player that is still unproven. Shorten the season. Where is all this crazy talk coming from guys.Wait until Oct6-8, usual opening day. You guys are gonna be right there with me drooling for Hockey. Miss the season, shorten the season. Blasphemy.

I disagree, look at how good the NBA season was this year. That is owed in part to having a shorter season, so the guys aren't worn out and injured when the playoffs start.
