The NHL will not shut down for 2 years; they would bring in replacement players first. To be quite honest, even if they did bring in replacement players, I would start watching. I follow the team, not the players.
After a while of some replacement hockey and players seeing their jobs lost to some clowns, they will start knocking on Goodenow's door to find out when the impasse will end.
The owners have arena's they can schedule events in and make some cash. If they are truly making more money by not playing hockey, then they can go on indefinitely with the dispute. If the players find they are making equal money in other leagues then they can stay there for all I care.
I just want to see hockey again regardless of the players. If we are willing to watch AHL games, then replacement players can't be much worse. The games may actually be more exciting if the replacement guys are trying to prove they are NHL caliber.
