The lockout could be a blessing in disguise for the Rangers.

With all the uncertainty surrounding the CBA, maybe it will encourage the Rangers not to make any silly trade or FA signing with longterm financial implications, and that includes Parise.

Perhaps more importantly, I think this team could benefit from a shortened regular season. No matter what happens, theyre gonna play with the same philosophy every game, which is pretty insane to sustain for 100+ games. 70 games keeps them fresh.

Take a punchers chance with this team next season - youre getting Gaborik back probably when the season will start. If they fail short again, you hope a name or two of a very, very good 2013 UFA class is out there in 13 months.
