I agree. The whole "stand up and fight back" approach just isn't going to happen.

Do the fans have the power? Of course we do. If every one of us stopped going to games and buying jerseys, etc... it would have a huge impact.

BUT... it's never going to happen. The NHL does nothing but offer us entertainment; period end. Once it comes back, every die hard fan will come back and root for their favorite team. The NHL knows this and it's why the lockout is happening at all.
