The reason I wouldn't support NHL replacements is the same reason I'd be unlikely to support a local UHL team. I'm not interested in watching a league in which Kevin Kerr is regarded as a superstar.

What do you suggest NHL'ers do now that they have no means of earning an income? Ok, maybe Derian Hatcher can take a few years off and still pay the bills, but I'm sure most players in the league cannot. I don't see where you get off telling someone they're not welcome to play in _____(insert league name here)____ just because they've suited up for 1 or more NHL games.
