well i for one hope there is no lockout if a lockout does happen, means hour cuts at hotel i work out means less hours less $$ when hockey game rolls around we do 100 + covers a night so we need hockey to keep hotel i work out busy...
if not ill just hit the gym everyday at play GM Connect with the guys
Very very depressing, boring without our Habs and NHL!! And what's worse is...players, owners, Bettman...none of them give a **** about us fans that pay their salaries. Whether I have a life or no life...good job or crappy job, girlfriend or no girlfriend...I can't take these lockouts!! So depressing (and going to a bar/pub on a Saturday night is not the same without our Habs on tv). I start hating the owners, players, GMs...all of them!! (fans pay all their salaries and they don't give a **** about us fans). I don't want to hate...I just want to watch our Habs!! and have a full NHL season!!
Do we really have to do this every 5 years?? What the **** (greedy ***-*****...all of them).
<I'm hoping for hockey in December '12 or January '13.
<AHL and Junior Leagues...we can follow the development of Galchenyuk, Beaulieu, Tinordi, Ellis, Thrower, Collberg, Bozon, Dietz, Kristo, Schultz, and maybe Leblanc will spend time with the Bulldogs to dominate? (put a tough guy on his line to protect him...an injury in the AHL is not what we need!). Heck...Weber could use another year in the AHL!! I just hope RDS, TSN (and maybe CBC?) will show many Bulldog games and OHL, CHL, and QMJHL games...
<We'll always have...the WJC tournament!!
And, would anyone remember...? The last two lockouts...was the last one half a season? and the one before that...half or no season at all? (thanks in advance).
Not much different with or without a season, for me. I'll go to BSens games, since the AHL will be playing. My wife is due, with our first kid, any day now so I'm assuming that will take a lot of my time that I used to waste watching hockey.
Probably the only big difference is that instead of heading to Montreal for 3-4 games we'll go on a nicer vacation this spring break. Even if the season resumes in early 2013 I'm debating on whether or not to head up for a game or two.
It wouldn't change much of anything for me because I have never been this unexcited by a NHL season. Maybe it's because I've refused to look forward to it because of the pending lockout, but my enthusiasm level for NHL hockey right now is pretty much at zero. NFL+CFL+end of season in MLB will get my sports attention.
Maybe it's because I hated pretty much everything MT did the first time around and I still can't believe he's back.
Maybe it's because I see this season as a boring ''place holder'' season while several key pieces of the future develop elsewhere.
Maybe last year's garbage and never ending soap opera has permanently scarred me and I need a break that is longer than one summer.
Probably all of the above.
I am way more interested in the Sting season, Bulldogs season and following 2013 draft prospects right now than the NHL.
