They'll get games going, fans will get engaged, a short season will see a couple surprise markets get a nice playoff run, all will be guns and roses for happy fans and business as usual right off the hop.

And the few lonely folks manning the picket lines of fan protests will pretty quickly recognize the futility of their actions and most will quietly pack it in too. Kudos to them for their idealism, but let's face it, hockey is just self-gratifying entertainment, who really wants to torture themselves over a matter of principle on something so fundamentally shallow?

Game is very much on. NHL doesn't have to do anything.
This lockout won't improve the game whatsoever and I am a fan in one of the good markets so this will only further erode my team. It won't be that hard for me to stay away. I know my money won't make or break the league but I don't support the direction it is heading and my only recourse is to not give them my support.
