I'm sick of the lockout but I'll be back when it starts again because I love hockey. A real fan wouldn't not watch the sport ever again because of this.
They will keep the most passionate fans, but its the "casual" fans that they are fighting with other forms of entertainment over.
The NHL teams don't distinguish between real fans and casual fans. They are concerned with real dollars, doesn't matter who it comes from.

It sort of resembles the recent election, which was all about the "swing states". Each party has its loyal followers, like the NHL does, but in order to be successful you have to get the undecided crowd to buy in.
