-Happy 50th birthday to former Penguins forward Dave Hannan. A 10th-round pick in 1981, Hannan spent parts of seven seasons with the Penguins. After appearing in one game and failing to record a point in 1981-82, Hannan's first full NHL season with the Penguins was 1982-83. He saw action in 74 contests and scored 33 points. In 1983-84,  Hannan was limited to 24 games and five points. He was limited once again in 1984-85 by only playing in 30 contests and scoring 13 points. Hannan rebounded in 1985-86 by seeing action in 75 games and collecting 35 points. In 1986-87, Hannan appeared in 58 games and scored 25 points. After 21 games and seven points in 1987-88, Hannan was traded to the Oilers along with Craig Simpson, Moe Mantha and Chris Joseph in exchange for Paul Coffey, Dave Hunter and Wayne Van Dorp. Hannan appeared in 355 regular season games with the Penguins and scored 148 points, 56th-most in franchise history.

-How much could the lockout benefit the defending Stanley Cup champion Kings from a rest standpoint?
