but people like us that post on hockey message boards all day will be back. whether its right away or a few months into it, we will be back. I am sure the NHL lost tons of casual fans with this, but the die hards like us will be back.
Of course not.

But will I choose to spend my money on a couple new vinyls instead of Devils tickets? Maybe. Or will I choose to get drinks after work on Fridays instead of watching the Devils game? Maybe.

This shouldn't be viewed as a mass exodus of fans. That definitely won't happen. However, it's conceivable that NHL revenue will be down a couple percentage points on an annualized basis.
