I think all three were contributing factors to Lemieux, and I see no reason why he shouldn't be docked for them.

The cancer aspect is completely different. There is a lot of gray area as to how many games his cancer ultimately caused him to miss. We do know that Lemieux had injury problems long before the cancer showed up.
IMO, missed time is missed time, giving allowances for the 3, or is it 4 lockouts now Gary? and some for WW2 as well.
