Then for the final nail in the coffin we hire an assassin to poison the Bruins money humper owner and have the NHL collapse on itself. The AHL will rise to North America's #1 pro hockey league before they bankrupt themselves after 4 years of play.
We are witnessing the slow death of high paid professional hockey.
I take in three-four hockey games a week , the amount of PPL that are still wearing the Montreal Canadians and Toronto Maple Leaf Jerseys and hats and jackets is enough to make one throw up !!
The fans of both these teams will support then come hell or high water , I am a Bruin,s fan , I refuse to wear anything too do with the NHL or the Bruins as long as this lockout continues , my "BROTHER" on the other hand is a Leaf's fan , he goes to a lot of games with me , he always wears something with the Leafs logo on it , In fact he thinks I am nuts because I refuse to wear any of my Boston caps or leather jackets that I own .
Not wearing or buying any "T"s , Caps , Jerseys , Jackets , anything to do with any team in the NHL is one way of boycotting the NHL .
I know this will fall on deaf ears when it comes to the Canadians and Leaf fans , they just cant see they are still supporting the NHL during this lockout by wearing their prized jerseys caps or jackets to junior games .
I know some will think it just doesn't amount to a can of beans not to buy anything from the NHL teams stores , and it will only hurt the sports stores owners , but for every cap , jersey , jacket you buy you are putting money in the pockets of the owners .
THINK ABOUT IT THE NEXT TIME YOU BUY THAT X-MAS GIFT FOR YOUR SON OR DAUGHTER THAT HAS AN NHL LOGO ON IT , YOU ARE SUPPORTING THE NHL AND THIS LOCKOUT !!!!!!!!!!!
