In that case, no team 'wins' from the lockout.

From a Canucks fan perspective, the lockout sucks because a year of the Sedins near their prime is lost, and a year which the Canucks are among the top tier favorites to contend goes down the drain. However, with Kesler still on the shelf indefinitely they have big question marks with their 2nd and 3rd line C. There is very little push from the farm system to fill in that hole.
not true if all contracts are voided then the cap would also be voided and the rich teams like the flyers rangers and leafs mould be HUGE winners as they could spend without restriction
