I'll come back but I'm Canadian, and the sport will be fine in Canada.
I think the damage done in the US will be severe though.
Even for me, I'm done with buying any NHL merchandise (no jerseys, hats, shirts, etc.) for at least the next couple of years and while I will watch on TV, honestly I don't think I'll go to more than 1 or 2 games this "season" (provided there is one).
If I was a fan in the US, honestly I'd just drop the NHL for the NFL/NBA and be done with it.
It's got to suck being a hockey fan in the US trying to convince friends and family that the NHL is a worthwhile product and then have both the owners and players slap you in the face like this.
If I was a fringe/casual fan, I'd never come back.
