If they fix this right now all they'll have lost is two weeks.
Aahhh, a voice of reason. Pretty sure everyone on here knows a few people that don't pay attention until the play-offs or until football is over. I would label them as casual fans and seriously doubt they are going to boycott the NHL when it does come back. Hell, by the time the league comes back those people won't even realize they had a lockout.
