A lockout-shortened season cheapens the championship, for me, anyway. Part of the feat of winning a championship is that you had to endure an 82-game season first. Even if a lockout season is in some ways more physically demanding because of a condensed schedule, that mental grind of 82 games, of having to stay focused for the long season...it isn't the same.

Of course, I won't be complaining if we have a short season and the Rangers win the Cup, but it won't feel quite as much like the "real deal" to me.
