I'm actually torn.
A 48 game season seems to be better than nothing, and anything can happen. Some teams could start off like bandits - like the Edmonton Oilers, who could make a strong playoff push with many of their players actually playing on the same team and bonding. Others will take some time to get into the swing of things, including the Jets, imo.
Now, the Jets have had some guys join other leagues, but not many are still playing. So most Jets are just skating on their own, without the pressures of game situations. I think we would be a bit behind the 8 ball, tbh.
And... two of our best players, Kane and Pavy, have also had a rough time in Europe which doesn't give me a whole lot of confidence that they could pick up where they left off last year and have immediate success.
But... without a CBA, and season, there would be no draft in June. I'm really looking forward to this draft, as i did in 2003, so postponing it would really piss me off. So, let's have a shorter season and hope for the best, would be my vote.
