The San Jose Sharks can benefit in some ways from the NHL lockout.

The San Jose Sharks, along with the rest of the NHL, are counting the days down until the lockout forces games to be cancelled. 

For the most part, the lockout will negatively affect the Sharks. Players are getting older and age will start to become a factor at some point. 

But since fans are so focused on possibly missing part of, or all of the 2012-2013 season, they don’t notice how the lockout can positively affect the Sharks. 

In the end, a lockout out is undoubtedly bad for the league as a whole, but the Sharks should be able to deal with the work stoppage better than most other teams. 

These five points outline the positive and negative affects towards the Sharks if the NHL begins to cancel games.
