And now I am certain that while I don't mind watching the games from time to time, it's not something I care to devote my time or emotions too.

I like playing more than I like watching. And I enjoy watching at the smaller venues from time to time - it is a treat rather than a chore. If the ownership had been stable, it would be rather enjoyable. But always thinking that they are leaving does not make it enjoyable.
Playing is so much funner then watching. Just remember, the NHL is only an entertainment business, it has no ownership over hockey, look to other amateur organizations like USA Hockey to find people who truly care more.
