There's little doubt that a vast majority of the NHL players were relieved by the end of the lockout.
It meant an end to being forced to wait for updates, playing in Europe or just sitting around. Owners also now have favorable terms as they attempt to make a profit off the game.
But there are many individuals who may not be in the mainstream that are also happy the lockout is over.
They were the forgotten workers and individuals who were not making a living or at least saw their income limited during the four-month lockout.
