A shorter season will bug the fans but it will help the Canucks this year.
First off, we will not be as burnt out by the end of the year.
Second, we need Kesler back and this will just about be perfect.
Third and most importantly, all the teams will be experiencing the same BS
so it not exactly as if other teams have an advantage over us.

It's going to hurt a lot of people because I am going to kick every person responsible for the lack of negotiating progress in the groin. Players, owners, Bettman, everyone.


No you won't, you're Brad Marchand, you'll be a hairy cat and submarine everyone and attempt to dangerously injure them; claiming it was "self-defense because a very mean big dangerous Sami Salo was coming at you full speed"

RIP to the BEST pound for pound fighter the NHL has ever seen. Will be missed.

Money losing teams will suffer the least, short term anyway.
Most lose less money by keeping their doors closed vs. playing!!!
Long term you have to wonder what a prolonged work stoppage will do to their already scant fan base

In the mean time I'm choked at players, avg player makes 12K a game top earners up to 100K a game.
Giving the player more of the revenue will only cost the fan more.

By all appearances there will be no hockey come October. While the Canucks are relatively healthy financially there are many USA teams that are on the edge of failure. PHX, NJD, NYI and CBJ to name a few. It appears the NHL is serious about getting its house in order this time.

Sitting a year impacts the Canucks as their playoff timeline is now not 3 or 4 years from now. Even completing a trade for Luongo will probably nopt happen until a settlement. IMO a lockout hurts the Canucks more than most teams. What say you all?


So is this the excuse Canucks fans are going to make when we don't win th cup when the lockout is over?

A lockout for 3-4 months would end up helping the Canucks....

1) Vancouver's travel schedule is the worst in the NHL. Therefore a shortened season would keep players fresher for the playoffs. Seems as though every year, the canucks just run out of gas near the end.

2) There's a few bubble players like Tanev, Kassian, and Schroeder, who have a legit chance of cracking lineup, to get some additional seasoning in the AHL. 20-30 games could really do wonders.

3) It gives more time for Ryan Kesler to train and heal up.

4) It would give Schneider a reduced work load which would help his development as he has not played a full season yet.

Although if the season was fully cancelled, i agree, it would take one more chance the canucks have at a cup.

As much as it would suck for the Canucks, the rest of the NHL and their fans, I personally believe it will hurt the employees of the teams the most.

Think about it, for every player, there is probably 20-30 (rough estimate) employees working behind the scenes. Whether they are in charge of security, maintenance, selling food and tickets, etc. I think it will be very damaging to them since they are making what, 30-50k a year? And now they will lose their jobs (arenas are closed except for occassional concerts and stuff) because there are two groups of millionaires and billionaires fighting over a contract that will give each side more profit?

Sounds stupid to me..and I really feel bad for those that will be forced to find new jobs to support their families

An entire season would be a killer for us. +1 to the Sedins age. +1 to Luongo; nobody is going to trade for him if there's no season.

It might not be such a bad thing. An extra year will hurt some of our players but greatly help others.

Ageing Players: Sedins, Luongo, Malhotra, Burrows, Ballard
Players who will benefit from development: Raymond, Kassian, Hansen, Booth, Edler, Tanev
Players who will benefit from a year off by healing injuries: Kesler, Malhotra, Higgins, Booth, Raymond

A year off will really shake up players in terms of their development and freshness to start the next season, and their level of play will greatly depend on which league they play in and how competitive that is.

Im a huge canucks fan and have been since 1987. But there comes a time where you must say enough is enough. If this lockout does happen i will no longer watch hockey, the business side of things have killed it for me. Thank god for the NFL cause fantasy football kinda kicks ass. Good luck canucks i just don't have the time or patience anymore.

Well on the plus side we may see Kesler in the starting lineup by the time they agree on things... Im a little bit worried when i hear the Sedins won't be playing anywhere during the lockout. I don't expect to lose a full year, im hopeful we'll see hockey back in december but a whole year gone would be pretty devastating for this team.

Regardless of the reason, there's no discrediting the fact that they missed an entire season that they may have lead us to a cup, and were another year older when they came back.

We'll never know though.


Bertuzzi missed an entire season. Morrison and Naslund played.
