If there's a lockout, where are you getting your hockey fix?

I'm guessing TSN would show extra junior games for us lucky Canadians, and there's always the WJC.

Anyone know approximately how many WBS games are broadcast online?

I suspect that WBS would get the ROOT treatment.

I'd probably have to watch the Chelmsford Chieftans and Romford Raiders play to get any fix.

WBS, definitely. About it. Would delve more into soccer then ever before. (Would get more expansive in my EPL viewing. As well as Serie A.)

WBS, and try to follow Junior teams with our prospects on them.

Man, I really hope it doesn't come to that. If it does though, I'll probably end up watching WBS as much as possible.

Guess I'd get season tickets to the Portland Winterhawks, and hopefully get to see Morrow (if would he be eligible for another year here? hes probably going to WBS) and Derrick Pouliot tear it up

But I'd rather watch some NHL, because i'll probably be going to a bunch of winterhawks games regardless

Watching streams for Euro leagues and KHL. I really hope it doesn't come to that though, but at least their time zones are ahead of ours so it won't mean watching games at 1am.

I'd start following the KHL, especially if premier talents from the NHL such as Datsyuk, Kovalchuk, Malkin, and Ovechkin were to also head back over. Aside from the obvious Russian stars, I'm sure many other prominent players would also join like Vincent Lecavalier a while ago did (this time perhaps Steven Stamkos plays with his teammate?). It doesn't sound bad when you set up that scenario at least.

Anyone and everyone that doesn't get paid to play.

A 3rd lockout in 20 year span makes the NHL look like the joke. I'm sure that we'll hear all the right things when everything gets settled but as a hockey fan I'll be embarrassed to be around my friends who mostly call the NHL the 8th league anyway. Even when they do come back we'll see a new set of rules every year and most won't make sense anyway. How do you make new fans when the rules change or soften yearly? How does "The All Mighty" Shanny suspend players for elbows but not when a player grabs someone by the head and crushes it into the glass? Nothing makes sense in the NHL... it never did and it never will.

He'll go to the Japanese league and score 300 points.

I'll be jumping on the Kitchener Rangers OHL bandwagon.

I was planning on following them no matter what as I will be living in Kitchener starting in September anyways. However if there is a lockout, I will be following them much more intensely. I.E. Following them with the same intensity that I normally reserve for Penguins hockey.

With that said, if I could also find Baby Pens or KHL games streamed online, I'll gladly watch those too.

Yeah I'm anxious to check out some Kitchener Rangers games in person.

Tickets are only $20 so that's good too. Am sure my old lady and I will enjoy ourselves whenever we go.

1) OHL
2) Finnish (SM-Liiga) or Swedish (SEL)


KHL still sucks. So hopefully the O will provide online services if the NHL locks up.

If none of those options work, I'll just double my time on NHL 13.

I'm planning on catching a lot of Extraliga and KHL games, especially since Prague and Bratislava both got expansion teams for the later. One of the silver linings of the move, really, at least until the judo tournament season starts for me.

Honestly, I don't want to think about it.

But...I suppose
WBS
NHL 13
Maybe a few Euro games depending on where players might go.

If there's a lockout in the beginning of the season it wouldn't be a huge deal for me, I can always watch some college football.

I might try to follow WBS for the first time ever .. And I'll probably watch more football.
