There is no Crosby draft this time around.
In Columbus the hardcore fans will return immediately. The casual fans will return when (if ever) the CBJ demonstrate for 6 weeks to 2 months that they can be competitive/have some reasonable hope of making the playoffs. That is the nature/definition of casual fans. Losing a season to a lockout will have little effect on this. I suspect that it is the same with several other U.S. teams.
