The most loyal fans are often the families of youth hockey players. This is the case in Southern California. Of all the families on my teenage sons' team, all but 2 have cancelled their Ducks season tickets. Teemu Selanne's kid is on the team, so he still has his luxury box. As for me............no Center Ice for me this year for the first time since the last lockout. No attending games if they come back unless it is part of my kids' team exercize or fundraiser, no GameCenter this year.....I will watch illegal streams that are free if I watch at all. Presenting the cup after a short season is bogus anyway, just like 1995. Draft lotteries are a joke, as was proven when Crosby ended up in Pittsburgh. Franchises in untenable markets, propped up by the league are also absurd. The onoy way my position is changed is if the owners fire Napoleon Bettman.
