Maybe it's because I'm relatively young, maybe it's because I'm more hardcore than most hardcore fans, but absolutely nothing will ever keep me from watching the Senators.
Ignore it 100%? No, but I certainly won't be as invested. Here are my examples if there is a shortened season of roughly 40 games or so and how it will affect myself. Every year I buy 1 Senators jersey, and maybe a hat or something. If the lockout goes that far? I already know I won't be making any merchandise purchases for that season.
Every season I take a road trip to 1-2 games, which isn't cheap. Ive been to tons of arena's out east and in the mid-west to watch Ottawa play, including playoff games in Ottawa, Toronto, and Pittsburgh. If there's a shortened season? I'm not taking any road trips for that season, it isn't worth it to me.
The next full season will I be back doing those things again? Yes, but I'm not shelling out money on some thrown together cockamanie season.
