of course the lockout sucks for american hockey fans, but if this will be resolved till december this could in the end turn out nicely. It for sure pushes hockey in europe media for a few weeks...

this small hype can maybe help countries where hockey is not that well established (germany, swizerland, austria mainly). i think at least for worldcup/olympics it's nice for the US/canada participate in those tournaments with high quality competition (or at least tolerable "place fillers" besides swe/fin/rus).

see it as some kind of development aid
