Just like the previous strike, you all came back and bought your season tickets, center ice packages, merchandise, beer and concessions.
Why would this time be any different?
Its like the spouse who continually keeps returning to an abusive relationship.
They watered down the sport with expansion and you came.
They decreased fighting and you came.
They raised ticket, merchandise and concession prices and you came.
The Owners and Players KNOW you'll be back. If not this year then next. This season maybe a wash but they'll patch things up for next season and they KNOW you'll be back with them no matter what you say.
Anytime anything has ever been accomplished, it been done with the leverage of a large group action, but you have to be unified to be successful and clearly you are not.
That is why the NHL will continually abuse you.
By the way, I have paid for NOTHING since the last strike. I loved OLD TIME hockey like no one else and I will not settle for this crap they try to call Hockey!
NO FIGHTS, NO RIVALRIES, NO BODYCHECKING is garbage!
PS: For those of you who are BOYCOTTING, I commend you!

LET'S BRING BACK "OLD TIME HOCKEY", SO EVERYONE CAN REMEMBER WHEN!
