I will probably buy season tickets for the first time for 05/06. The NHL still has my full support, I hate the lockout but I hate basketball so much more.

One of the things that I suggested long ago is to make a cap variant for players drafted and developed by a team.

For example, Mike Komiserak would only could say 60-75% towards the cap as long as he is with the Habs. That way, players could get paid more based on showing loyalty to their team, and fans can have the roster continuity.

Just an idea.

Good luck with your stance, my only question is why you would choose to smite charities that the NHL is involved in? You're going to NOT give any money to cancer just because the NHL supports it? Since Saku Koivu and Mats Sundin will be wearing "Captains against Cancer" patches, you're not going to donate anything to the Canadian Cancer Society? That'll really show 'em.

They don't have a different price to advertise during the games
For the National networks who guarantee Cume, yes viewership effects advertising rates. But that is more than likely only going to be 5 of the teams 82 games. (unless they shorten the schedule)

Hockey Night in Canada on CBC (free national television network, quasi government agency) is a very, very big deal in Canada, and while I don't know for a fact, I would assume that it is premium advertising rates.

But are the advertising rates a fixed amount or do they charge for actual cumulative viewers like the American Networks?

No, I would expect that they are at a fixed rate. The rate that they could impose on their advertisers would of course diminish if viewership dwindled, which I think is the point at hand. I think it's moot anyway; Canadians are generally very sheep-like in our behavior- if they broadcast it we will watch it.

It depends on when the CBA gets in place. The NHL will be in better shape if they give people an advance for people to plan and budget things out. I will go to the games I go to every year, Vancouver (especialy this year!) Philly, beyond that depends on what the league does.

However College hockey will get the priority beyond my hardcore games. I'm going to the DU banner raising (added bonus of seeing Dave Hansons son) I want to take drives down to the Springs to see games at CC and Air Force and the games are good bang for the buck.

One advantage the Avs will have here is the potential NBA lockout. Again people who have to make preseason plans won't will look at a sure thing. The Nuggets are a resurgent team, but fans still are taking a "wait and see" approach about embracing them. Half the population moved in since the 90's so they have no conception of the team's glory years, are fans of other teams (bad wagon Bulls fans), and have no emotional tie to the Nugs. The other half were driven away by every beloved figure of the team being tossed aside a promising team being broken up for ***** and giggles and horrible ownership impossed on us by the league.
