I'm very bummed . All our good older players like Heatley,Koivu,Parise,Suter/Backstrom just get a year older. They are all quickly leaving the prime years of their career. Its now or never for those guys. We need a young stud like Granlund/Brodin to step up and take this team to the next level with an above expectations season. If we wait everyone just gets older.

Sure our prospects get more seasoning but they need to be pushing for NHL spots not resting on their training and intensity because they know there is no point to push for the NHL this year. The hype and energy our team has gained in the offseason has no doubt trickled down to each and every player in the association making them want push harder to be apart of the revival of the team. This lockout is just going to kill that momentum not to mention from a fans perspective and all the new fans locally and nationally will lose interest after a lockout.
