They've lost me as a paying fan. I'll watch on TV if the Flames are on.... but I'll NEVER pay to see this primadonnas again.

I bought a new Rangers jersey over the weekend. I'm ready whenever the players and owners are.

Until then, I'll be rooting on the WBS Penguins in the AHL.

I'll come back for sure. The last time I went to an NHL game was in Tampa Bay looooooooong before the Stanley Cup years (ugh, seems so VERY wrong to say that!) in December 1997. But that won't stop me from going to Ottawa or Buffalo or Columbus sometime to catch a game (NEVER to Toronto or Detroit! )

At first I told to myself I woundn't go back, but now that it's mid way through October I miss hockey a lot and I can't seem myself not going back. I'm thinking about hockey all day at work. :uhoh:

Probably not. The Bruins have always been overshadowed by the Sox and the Patriots, and I doubt anyone's even thinking about them now.

Absolutely. This is the most exciting sport around with athletes (though misguided with regards to labor disputes) of the highest integrity.

I only started watching hockey about two years ago when the Lightning made the playoffs when I went to a playoff game. Since then I have been hooked. Not only to my team, but to the whole sport. I watched every bit of hockey I could. I hope it comes back soon.

I'll be back and watching with the same enthusiasm that I had before the lockout ...

Unfortunately, I doubt I'll be able to attend any Wings games post-lockout ... Wings tickets have been really expensive for nearly a decade and I can see the games better on TV ...
