I have a feeling the NHL will not recover as quickly this time. Yeah, the fans will come back, but the momentum gained since the last lockout will be lost.

Unlike the MLB, NFL and NBA.. hockey is a legit world sport. One of the hardest sells the NHL has with the "casual" fan is that the sport is dominated by Canadians and Europeans. The mass exodus to Europe could turn off a lot of these fans... especially the pro-american types (you know what I mean).
