I live in an area where NHL hockey is (was) just a part of life in the winter.

I am personally seeing interest fading, disillusionment and downright resentment around here. I'm feeling it too.

I really hope fans follow MLB fans' footsteps and that we see empty arenas everywhere. I doubt this happens in traditional markets but I could very well see empty seats in non-traditional ones (we already do).

At this point, for me to come back and love the NHL the way I used to is for Bettman and Fehr to leave and be replaced by people who love the game of hockey and want to see it prosper and be as exciting as possible for fans first and foremost.

Until that happens, it's just a business for me.

And as sad as this is, I'm not going to lie. Seeing empty seats everywhere when this resumes would make me very, very happy.
