For all the whinging and moaning, talk of 'payback' via fan boycotts, I think we'll find it will largely be business as usual for attendances at most clubs come Jan 19th. The Sabres reported a grand total of 13 people have cancelled their season tickets out of some 14,000 people (with a further 3000 on the waiting list). Tampa have apparently had just 50 people cancel theirs.

Yet since September ive been reading lockout articles footnoted with comments about how the NHL can go to hell. One hilarious Maple Leafs fan even declared he'd surrendered his centre ice gold's at the ACC in protest at Gary Bettmans stewardship of the league. Right. So the 50,000 long waiting list should get shorter by 1 eh? Nice going.

For all the fan vitriol, I can't see much being truly affected by this lockout. People just want their game back - and now we have it
