Even if you don't fully commit to one of these things, just think about it this way..

If every fan withheld a certain amount of money... be it merch or a couple of tickets you hold back from buying or cutting back on the amount of non-home team games that you watched on TV, just any little amount... there'll be a definite hit in an already shortened season (or lost season).

I know most of us will be back, but most likely without the same enthusiasm. That'll show up in the earnings for sure. Hockey is the 4th best sport in the country in a good year, so those are $$ that the NHL can't really afford to sacrifice.


If MLB fans had it in them to show their disapproval, so can a smaller, more concentrated fanbase in hockey.
