In all honesty, who knows? I mean, Teemu came back a TANK again after the lockout. Maybe it might do the same for Stastny/Duchene (mentally, not physically - tho the guys could work out some with Lando & RoR).

We'll see how the team is after the lockout to see if it helped or not. Sometimes being away from the game helps too - could easily just as harm but still.
This is what my opinion is. It gives players like Stastny and Duchene to gain their confidence back up. Staz just had a good WC, and Duchene will be able to dominate whatever league he plays in. We had some good chemistry before the home stretch, I don't that's going to be an issue.

Our players need experience, but I don't think it's going to be a huge deal when a few were struggling to begin with. This gives them time to refocus. I don't see players like Downie, RoR, Landy having their game impacted much by the lockout. In comparison to the rest of the league, the Avs are sitting pretty.
