The lockout has a big effect on the NHL, its players, employees, and of course, the fans.
But as the labor dispute drags into the new year and the best a new season can be is 48 games, here's a look at 15 current NHL players whose legacies will be affected by the lockout.
Some of these players are legitimate Hall of Fame candidates and will have their career statistics hurt by missing at least half a season. Others will miss out on chances to reach milestones, return from injuries or rebound from poor finishes to last season.
Some players will even be affected in a good way by the lockout.
Feel free to comment or add some other players you feel I may have missed who you feel belong on this list.
