The one thing re: Red Wings that amuses me about the lockout is how people were saying Holland did nothing over the summer to prepare for the fallout from the new CBA; i.e. amnesty buyouts, salary rollback, etc. etc.

The NHL has already said it will not agree to amnesty buyouts, and there will probably be a salary rollback in addition to the lowered cap. Basically, the salary structure will remain the same, and teams will not be looking to buy out players. There will be no swooping in to grab good cheap players.

So, we get a year of lockout and then a year of the Wings likely not making the playoffs to look forward to.
