I thought this was discussed already in another thread.
As much as i don't want to see it, I belive it would help with any hunger issues that might exist as residual from the hangover.
I support this "two month lockout" thread.
I am confident my candidate will win.
Sorry but, I cannot see any advantage to a lockout. To me, it's about as smart as when TM pulled Quick that time when he was on such a roll.
Finally these guys developed that chemistry and self confidence needed to carry them to that cup. I feel that a layoff would be a curse on that winning attitude.
I'm also wondering what DTV will do about their automatic CI withdrawl from our accounts.
Oh, look. Pierre Lebrun seems to think the same way:
Kings' Cup celebration dimmed by CBA - Cross Checks Blog - ESPNQuote:
I personally wonder whether a delayed start to the season wouldn’t, in some twisted way, actually help the Kings. Players on the past few Stanley Cup champions have told me that the short summer hasn’t allowed their bodies to totally recharge in time for the start of the next season. Heck, Duncan Keith of the Blackhawks told me that the year after they won the Cup his body was never quite 100 percent recovered from the Cup year. So having said all that, perhaps scrapping October wouldn’t be the worst thing ever -- physically -- for the Kings.
Professional athletes are creatures of habit. They absolutely rely on routine. I'm sure we've all heard one or more of them whine to a reporter when they couldn't get their scheduled nap in on a gameday...
Lockout is bad. Two hours, two days, two weeks, two months, it's ALL bad. It'll screw up their cherished "routine" and throw them off-kilter (or whatever excuse fits). And more importantly (and yes, selfishly) I MISS HOCKEY!
