08:30 AM ET 12.26 | Another year, another Spengler Cup tournament -- though this one comes with an added bonus. This year should be the best Spengler Cup ever. The absurdity of the NHL lockout will be this tournament's gain. ... Without a doubt, the best team Canada has ever sent to the Spengler Cup. Locked out players Tyler Seguin (Boston, playing in Biel), John Tavares (NYI - Bern), and Jason Spezza (Ottawa - Rapperswil) are all enjoying good seasons in the Swiss NLA and give Canada more offensive options than the team has had in years. ... This is all capped by the presence of locked out Edmonton left winger Ryan Smyth. There is barely a team with a Canadian flag on it that the veteran forward hasn't been named to.

There's still some room on the knee pads. BIG marketing opportunity lost there. I do like the hamburgler look though.

"The best Spengler Cup tournament ever"

In the absence of real hockey, everything else looks "best ever" at this point, including beer league and backyard pond hockey.
