I would watch it AND care about it. Screw the players if they can't settle with making merely millions.

I understand but how can you have the same feelings for players that don't even belong there. It would be just like the AHL. Why bother calling it the NHL when there is not NHL calibre players ?? Just leave it as AHL IMO.

I would watch and I would care. Just like every other sport, we cheer for the name on the front of the uniform not the name on the back of the uniform.

I look at it this way...You are just expediting the future by 3 to 5 years...

Those guys that play will at some point take the place of those that time takes out. It's a natural progression in fast mode. I think it would be better than AHL hockey. Not all 1100 NHL players are going to turn their backs on a paycheck. many would play.

I can live with that.

Hell..even the original WHA was good hockey and yet this would or could be similar.

I'd care if they do this...

keep all the entry contract players and then fill out the rest of the rosters with replacements...The veteran rich players are the problems...as long as Anaheim can start a team all over with Lupul, Chistov, Getzlaf and Perry I'd be happy...

screw Fedorov and Sykora.

I'd probably follow what was going on and I might watch on TV, but I wouldn't really care and hell would freeze over before I bought tickets. WHL for me until the NHL is back in its proper form.

Second option,I'd watch but i really wouldnt care. If its NHl players or substitutes. I dont care about the players or who plays or there personal life , greediness or whatever. What i do like though is the GAME of hockey there is a difference.Even though it is nice to see the real deal guys, they are the best in the world and it makes the game more exciting, but hey if they call it NHl hockey ill watch it.What i do care about is going to work everyday and keep on learning to make myself tons of $$$$$$, thats what i really love and CARE ABOUT. Dont care about hockey or the players and to them the feeling is mutual I just absolutley enjoy wayching the sport.
