Ryan Reaves said there's a different feeling that sets in when regular-season games start to fall victim to the NHL lockout.
"When the lockout starts you're, 'OK, we'll miss the exhibition games, we'll miss camp.' And you smile about it a little bit," he said. "But when it gets to the point where regular-season games are getting canceled... now we're really missing paychecks. Now it starts hitting home a little more. We're all sticking behind what we're trying to get accomplished, but it's a different feeling now." The NHL is projected to announce the postponement of the 2012-13 season shortly. Reaves has been skating in Winnipeg at MTS Iceplex with some other NHLers and Jets players. The Winnipeg-native had four points and 124 penalty minutes in 60 games with the St. Louis Blues last season.
