There may be no bigger indictment of where this franchise is, one month before the scheduled start of a season that few expect to start as scheduled.

Some fans of the Toronto Maple Leafs actually want there to be a work stoppage that wipes out an entire season, and they have made their case quite fervently on blogs and social media over the past few months.

Reason No. 1 for a Leafs fan to root for a lockout?

The last time a season was cancelled, the top pick in the following entry draft (Sidney Crosby) was determined by a weighted lottery that would, if conducted in similar fashion in 2013, give the Leafs one of the seven best chances of picking first overall.
