That's just my opinion on it. I'm tired of the lockout. Just give me hockey, I'm not saying I ever want this hypothetical thing to happen because yeah it wouldn't work out well for us, but if it did happen and it meant they resumed playing, I would suck it up. I just wanna watch hockey, but that's fine if many disagree with me. I just don't think I could ever quit watching the NHL...As much as they might deserve to lose fans, I'm too attached at this point to cut ties. Now would I go to as many games as I do now? Probably not, but I would still watch just about every game on TV. Sorry if my post came across as harsh...I'm just saying I will always root for the Blue Note regardless of what the roster looks like. The 2005-2006 season was painful...but I watched all 82 of those sad games
, so no point in stopping now IMO.
This would be like 2004 all over when Laurie left sold the team. Losing our young core to teams like Detroit - to replace them with mid level vets... yeah... I would turn my back on hockey.
I love the sport and hope that my kids choose to play it, but there comes a point as a fan, when you can say enough is enough. It is one thing to have a change in ownership and have to sell off your top players to cut payroll, but to lose them this way wouldn't be fair.
Personally, I think most of us have found other things to do with our time and while we miss the Blues and will return when the season starts - if this nuclear winter occured, most moderate fans wouldn't return. 12 yeqrs of rebuilding is way too long for the average fan base - especailly when you are at the top of the mountain after a long hike up, demonstrating a ton of patience as the team was built the correct way - to fall to the bottom and have to start over... no thanks.
