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.
Actually by all reports the NHL has been telling teams not to expect a salary rollback.
