If they come to an agreement and we get a 48 game season, I guess the next real question is WILL THE FANS CARE?

The hardcore fans would show up to watch ice freeze. I'm talking about the average fans who OCCASIONALLY buy the tickets, occasionally buy the crap, buy the concessions, buy CI, and read the Dispatch.

I also wonder what our lovely HF here will be like. In the past, we cared too much. If we get a shortened season, and suck out of the gate, we'll probably just view it as a JOKE* year, and wait until next year to put our wretched hearts and overbearing arguments back into it.

Of course, even a JOKE* YEAR could be interesting.

(*"Joke" or "Developing the young guys" or "building team chemistry" ...however the front office decides to spin it.)
