This is how I thought I would feel too. I was completely pissed at both sides. Still am.

But I'm super excited to talk about NHL hockey again. I felt good this morning when I read TSN this morning and saw that a resolution was reached. NHL hockey is obviously something I love. That said, I have two friends who were absolutely die hard Jets and NHL fans last year that now have no need for NHL hockey and won't be following it any longer. The damage, for them, is irreparable. I think Paul Bissonette summed it up very well on Twitter when he said "to the fans who will not come back to the NHL, I can understand." (pretty much exact words)

I think you're right about weak hockey markets like Phoenix, Miami and Dallas. They will suffer the most. No different than it took markets like Toronto longer to recover from the last MLB strike.
