I Personally think they do. They have far less games to play (maybe) , time for kesler to heal , some rookies who may need that whole season can play in the AHL and stay sharp . Besides chemistry I don't see how a temporary lockout can hurt the canucks , if anything it lets there vets rest and there younger players (kassian , schroeder , tanev) play big minutes for the wolves
i know this can be said about many teams but for the canucks a team thats been on that verge of a cup with two back to back presidents trophys , i see it meaning alittle more
