Some Toronto fans had an interesting idea. They will only watch Maple Leafs games after the league is back, essentially becoming Leafs fans instead of NHL fans. I don't think I would do that, but it's an interesting distinction to make.
I more or less do that anyway, well it depends on your definition of 'watching' a game. A few minutes here, a few minutes there of whatever's on but I don't really make it a point to watch other teams' whole games per se except maybe the Winter Classic, which I boycotted last year for obvious reasons (though I still watched the 24/7 show).

If it's a playoff game I'll make it a point watch the last few minutes of the 3rd/OT but I can't really get into non-Devil NHL games enough to watch start to finish. I do like hockey don't get me wrong, but actually watching it for two and a half or more hours requires an emotional investment I don't have in those teams.
