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.
I am not going to claim to know what I will decide, but my gut says I will continue on strongly as a Blues fan.Your story is just about spot on for my case as well.

As for the NHL, I will not follow other games outside the Blues. No more watching nationally televised games, NHL Network, nor visiting at least not for a few years. If I can think of other ways to show my disgust for the league then my list will grow.

If the Blues cease to exist in the NHL, I will be done with the league. That does not mean I will quit watching/following hockey. Rather, my time will be spent following other leagues. I liken that to how I can watch college football and basketball, but want nothing to do with the NBA or NFL.
