The innocence is gone...forever? Even hockey haters amongst the Boston sports radio media have always marvelled at how such wonderful people play in the NHL...so different, and humble from the other sports. But they're all tainted now, or at least no better than the spoiled brats we talk about in the other major sports. For years, I hoped the players could make as much as other athletes, but...

I can't wait for them to return, but I'll view them differently.

Personally other sports like football or just other entertainment is pleasing me, many times i tape WWE Raw on Monday night and watch it Saturday. one thing for sure i've lost any notion of ever going to another NHL game..
I expected the lockout to last this long and to go longer (I don't expect NHL hockey at all this season)...both sides are lead by stubborn asses. Thankfully, there still is other hockey to watch.

That depends on where you live. Closest minor league club to Phoenix is 90 minutes away.

NHL had the best players in the world. There isn't any substitute for it. I don't get to games because they're too expensive, but I watch on TV or on the internet.

I go to the City Ice Pavilion in Long Island City in Queens NYC close to the 7 train 33st stop, to watch their Div 1 adult league play. It is really good. Funny, how no roughhousing, or checking can actually make the game faster, and fun to watch.

I'll be back but for me "back" means my Center Ice charge starts up again. I am not sure how I would feel if I had yet ANOTHER season (in less than 10 years) where I was forced to find something to do with my money than buy tickets.
