Edmonton/Calgary/Ottawa wouldn't have teams either (Bettman played major role in saving them in late 90's/early 00's)

The Vanderbeek can't be for the lockout. The lockout is short term thinking, no payroll or hockey related expenses. But the lockout is killing them financially. Vanderbeek will never survive now unless the NHL helps him as an owner. Since Newark lost their legal suit it would be best to see the Rock dark from their point of view.

All of us hardcore fans are gonna be so hungry for hockey that we'll go the minute it starts. It's the casual fans it will effect.

Screw that. They're not getting my money this season or next. I can handle just watching games on TV and spending my money on AHL tickets and sub-ECHL tickets instead.

Unfortunately I like going to hockey games too much. I'm all for not putting money into their pockets after they screw us over but it's hard not to.

Hey guys. What kills me is that BETTMAN (iPhone capitalized it) is bent on this. The lockout kills teams and the money. It ruins the smaller teams

This right here. I know some people are saying you shouldn't spite yourself to try and make a point but its going to be a looooooooong ass while before ANY nhl related product sees my money.

I won't lie and say that I don't want to go to games. I do. It was something I really enjoyed doing and I do miss it, as much as I have found other ways to keep myself busy. However, I refuse to feed money to a league that has ZERO interest or regard for its largest revenue source - US. If that happens to hurt the Devils, so be it. They happen to be a part of this league and it is what it is. I mean what is it going to take before the voice of the fan is finally heard?

Hockey is and always will be a niche sport in this country and the only thing that keeps it going are the loyal fans who constantly put up with the garbage the league has to offer. Never mind the games lost, my biggest beef with all involved is just how much of a giant **** they took on this sport with this lockout. Through oblivion they charge. As much as I miss hockey and the Devils, the thought of crawling right back to these ****ers is enough to make my stomach turn.

It sucks that there is no hockey. I get it. But the way I see it, what difference does it make? Any professional league that continues to close its ****ing doors every several years, a league that is hellbent on further tarnishing its mediocre image, well how long can something like this continue to be relevant anyway? And honestly, why the hell would you even want to or be proud to support it in the first place?

They will never admit it, but it definitely looks like that.

LOL you mean so many millions? Sit around and complain about Leipold, and not even think about the Wild employees that had to take a 20% pay cut.

Poor guy had his stick tied up at the last second and that caused his clearance attempt to go right in. That sucks.
