Shorter season an advantage for NYR?
 
Seems like the work load on Henrik is always a concern. Does a shorter season work in his favor?

Probably benefits LA as well I imagine if the season started in December... wait out the cup hangover.

I was thinking the same thing. Our defense won't be as gassed either.

But of course if we win the cup, HF boards will cry out that there should be an asterisk by our name in the books for winning it in a short season.

We'll just have to go back to back now wont we :P

I think a shorter season will help Hank and Gaborik. Hank wont have as much of a workload and can be fresh for the playoffs. Gaborik can rehab his shoulder and take his time doing so and also be fresh for the playoffs

A short season would help Kreider too. Or any rookie.

I would help in that we have two key players that are injured long term, and the longer the lockout the better our roster is likely to be per game this upcoming season.

But a. games are not won on paper and

b. I want to watch some hockey. So a lockout isn't good for any reason in my mind.

And we can easily extrapolate that to a bigger picture...v a shorter season is better for EVERYONE in terms of players' conditioning.

It's not like we're tho only hard working team in the league, just trying to get in position to catch a fly ball.

that attitude is affecting A LOT of things these days...

You miss 1 game and there's a decent chance you miss ALL of the games. So while a shortened season could help us, I'd rather not take the chance that it gets shortened out of existence.

As long as there is a season, a shortened one would be a huge advantage for our shot blocking team. I would happily sacrifice 20-25 games to have a well rested Lundqvist for the playoffs as well. Also there would be less, or even no time lost with Gaborik. I love our chances in a shortened season.

And then the devils fans can ignore us when we tell them that they won their first cup with less games then this season will probably be.

i dont think it benefits any goalie or team in particular, every team is concerned with the amount their star goalie plays, and every team now has the advantage of their goalie having to play far fewer games.

BUT if it is a shorter season, then Hank will lose his 30 straight wins a season to start his career, a current NHL record :(:(:(

Yep. I thought of this same thing a while back.

Yes but it is a record that is already tainted, in my mind, by the shootout win. Maybe i'm a purist but i'll count records by regulation/ot victories, including when and if Hank passes Richter.

shortened seasons also become condensed seasons less days off so it might actually be worse for a team like ours due to not having as many days off to rest after games. also would likely increase the workload for biron.
