I think you got my point. A 2nd tier startup league is facing an uphill battle.
No matter the fan's position in the lockout, fans cheer for their Leafs, Habs, Canucks, Wings etc.

Have a lot of Habs fans abandoned the Habs and are now Flames fans because of Cammaleri? ex-Flyers fans now Kings fans because of Richards and Carter?
