No - a lot of these WHL grads choose an education over grinding through the minor leagues for 7-10 years. It's the smart move for a lot of guys and still quality hockey for people who watch.

My point remains - The junior side of the Flames organization is still big business and potentially as lucrative (Mainly due to the lack of salary costs) as the big team.

As long as you feign moral outrage on a message board, then yes.

To me, you and the people involved in it absolutely. To NHL owners though? No, and that's the point im trying to make.

Thats why I don't want to punish the Hitmen by boycotting them, because it represents some peoples livelihood. I think you might have misunderstood the point I was trying to make.

I know enough people who work at the Dome who are losing a lot of shifts because of the NHL Lockout, so I'll be going to the Hitmen both to get my hockey fix, and to support all the staff
