    Wel, the unthinkable has hapopened. So lets look at the good points of the lockout:(Take it easy, people, its all in good humour) I also am missing 5 teams here, anybody feel free to add on!

    Atlanta: Don't have to hear about the Heatly saga or Kovalchuk hotdogging

    Anaheim fans: Good news is, they're going to Disneyland

    Boston fans: Don't have to worry about team self destruction in first round

    Calgary fans: At least the team won't suffer the "one year wonder, next year, disaster" jinx

    Carolina fans: Hockey is what? Turn down that soap opera so I can hear !

    Colorado fans: Forsberg's in Sweden, but it won't make a difference

    Columbus: Extra time useful to invent better, less basketball esque logo

    Dallas fans: Modano's dog not eating as much. Less dog doo
    to shovel off lawns.

    Detroit fans: No longer have to worry about Steve Y being blinded or his knee blowing out like a firestone tire(I say this with the greatest respect, I'm a huge Stevie fan)

    Edmonton fans: Don't have to watch team fight for playoff spot only to miss out with one week left

    Florida fans: Surf's up, dude

    Los Angeles fans: Can now devote more time to watching amusong Scwarzeneggar speeches on tv

    Montreal: French and English speakers can use time to fight over who has the superior language

    Minnesota: Watching poker beats watching trap hockey

    New Jersey: Can use extra time sending angry letters to Gretzky about the time he called them a "Mickey mouse organisation. Anaheim fans say "Whats wrong with Mickey mouse?

    New York Islanders: Less hockey,Less Yashin

    New York Rangers: Team not in the playoffs again, but this
    time not because of woeful underperformance

    Nashville: Less hockey, more Nascar
    Ottawa: Daniel Alfredsson's recent haircut leaves a lot less for the fans to discuss anyways

    Philedephia: Mmmm, cream cheese

    Phoenix. Less Brett Hull. 'Nuff said

    Pittsburgh: Not watching the Penguins is a blessing in itself

    San Jose Sharks: Time to ponder merging with Ducks and call themselves the "Mighty Angel Sharks of Anaheim". Hey, it nearly happened in baseball

    Tampa Bay: Hockey in June? Its just not right

    Toronto: At least Sundin won't nearly impale a Canadian fan with a stick this year

    Washington: One more year(at least) for Alexander Ovechkin to grow up


    Season ticket holders: Can use money saved to go watch hockey in next Olympic games

    Non ticket holder fans: Will see exactly as much NHL hockey as ticket holders, plus won't get heart palpitations and ulcers from watching playoffs

    Hawks fans - Stand a good chance at drafting Crosby if the draft is based on lst years standings.

    If ever a group of fans deserved a break like this, it would have to be us here in Chicago after all these years of suffering.

    I forgot Blues fans: Don't have to have hopes of their team contending for a cup, only to be crushed in the early rounds every year

    Canucks fans: Can rest safely knowing Cloutier won't allow a single bad goal from now till July.

    And on the bright side, Mike Danton may not have missed much hockey by the time he gets out.

    Bruins fans don't have to worry about the Canadiens beating them in the playoffs.
