Monopoly money thrown on ice

I know it's been tossed around a bit but obviously asking us to skip 10 games is a lot but what if we organized something like the monopoly money idea? Right after puck drop everyone throw it on the ice

1) It's incredibly juvenile
2) Trying to scrape thin paper off of ice is annoying as hell, and would cause delays. It may well result in an opposing team power play, which is always good in an abbreviated season. Why not do it in the playoffs too?
3) It wouldn't make as much of a statement as waffles did

If you want to be uber-brave about it, tell a player what you think. Make sure he's at a restaurant with his family when you do it too.

So, in other words, fans would waste a few minutes of clean up time while the NHL still has your money for attending the game?

I'm sure that the NHL is quaking in their boots.

Want to send a message? Don't go to games, don't buy gear, don't buy their videogames, and don't buy any special TV subscription pass.

I've always wanted to spend $30 on a Monopoly set just so I can remove the money and throw it away. What do I do with the rest of the Monopoly set now?

Yes because I am sure no one will go to their games, they knew you'd be back.

A real message would be every building empty for game 1

Walk out into the lobby after the puck drop.

I have at least 7 different Monopoly games. I'm sure I can send you some replacement money.

Everyone should do it when they're at home in the playoffs against the Hawks. I'd love the powerplay.

They do sell the money separately too.

Maybe you should just bring the monopoly money up to the owner's box.

This doesn't warrant it's own thread.

Your revenge ideas can stick to the lockout threads.
