With some luck the NHL will cancel this season and give us our money back....
I know of no Stanley Cup winner that is thought less of because of a shortened season. As long as the playoffs remain the same, they continue to be the toughest test to a league championship among North American sports. The regular season is essentially for seeding (and selling 82 games worth of tickets, concessions, and merchandise!). 40, 52, 60 games? A legitimate champ will still emerge.

You may feel lucky if the season is cancelled, I won't.
