The lockout had made me very angry as a fan but seeing the WJC has really made me wish the lockout was over so we can have NHL hockey back.

In the US we have very sparse hockey coverage, we don't have the CHL broadcasts and NCAA and AHL broadcasts can be very poor quality. Without the NHL there just isn't much on.

Not at all. Screw the NHL they're not bigger than the sport itself.

I think for a lot of people they ARE the sport.

I'll take NHL and the playoffs over a fictional event.

More fictional than a NHL season this year?

It proves to me the same every year. The best players in the world (Thos being the ones in the NHL) don't always produce the most exciting hockey.

A strongly motivated hockey game for both sides provides the best hockey to watch as a fan IMO.

I guess it depends how you listen. I haven't ever expected an end to this until there is an actual "do or die" date. At that point the players will have to make a decision.

Nope, the Players are still greedy, the owners make me mad.

I hope they all lose millions.

While some of it may have to do with the start times, I really didn't have much interest in the WJC. Hockey has kind of fallen to the wayside. Filling up my free time with other activities has left me not missing any of it. I'm sure I'll get back into it pretty quick, but for now no hockey suits me fine.

I wanted hockey back either which way. I don't consider myself part of the "screw the NHL" crowd by any stretch. I wish I could be but it just means too much to me.

Me and the NHL are like that old married couple that fights all the time but they've been together 40 years. They might get on each others nerves all the time but at the end of the day they mean everything to each other. And yes, we the fans do mean everything to the NHL whether they treat us like it or not.

If anything, I would say the World Juniors has made me feel much better. At least I have some hockey to be a part of for a couple weeks.

They will.

And neither will give a crap.

Yeah, sadly it's true that there's a lot of people on these boards that aren't hockey fans, but rather just fans of the NHL.

I think of it as a never-ending, abusive relationship where one party has all the power and control and the other is too weak and disorganized to stand up to the other.
