But like someone said (I dont remember who..) fans loves hockey, they love it too much.. We'll all go watch the game and be happy its back..
I think had the season started as planned, Mr Molson would have already been feeling some backlash as a result of this past season's poor showing. I've been buying Habs tickets religiously every year since the last lockout, and only twice in 7 seasons was I able to get a 10 game pack. By the time it was my turn to order online, only single seats were left.

This year? Almost a week after they had gone on sale I could log onto the Habs' website and order 3 of the 4 offered packs if I wanted to (which I didn't). Granted, part of that is a result of the uncertainty from the lockout, but that had to feel like a glass of cold water dumped on Molson's head. The sale eventually ended with packs still available. These things usually sell out in 3 hours.

Now games are getting cancelled, fans are angry/apathetic and just put off by the concept of billionaires fighting millionaires... I'm very curious to see how they'd react if hockey does return this year. I know I'm done spending money on this team for a little while at least.
