All the players except those not yet signed will lose a full year. Not just Ovechkin. I don't think the contracts get rolled over anther year. And any players who are in the last year of their contract this year will be UFA's or RFA's at the end of the year regardless if they play or not.

This uncertainty is really messing me up. Usually by this time of year I have my vacations for the upcoming year figured out, flights booked. Hotels booked. I was wondering how much this impacts some of the other supporting industries in each city ie: airlines, hotels, taxis, restaurants, sporting goods stores, radio and television. Some of the smaller markets such as Phoenix won't be getting those hockey vacationers that fly in to see their favourite teams plus stay and drop $ in the community.
