The hell with the NHL

Been gone so long, don't care anymore.

+1

I grew up in NNJ & was a big NYR fan (there was no Devils as they were in Colo) But I lost touch years ago, but started watching again last year.

The playoffs were great last year.

Bettman has really F'ed up the league

Like our Gov't - they need to find common ground

Here in Lehigh Valley - The Flyers club the Phantoms are moving into a new arena in 2014, but I just read they will start charging the future season tix owners in Jan. Shit they won't be playing for 18 months

I will miss the playoffs though.
Living in a warmer climate helps. Not being stuck inside as much.
Kinda feel sorry for people in like, Winnipeg, et al.

I talked with a friend in Nova Scotia today.
He made a good point about the Q and the USHL getting stronger due to nobody getting called up.
He still misses his Leafs though.

Eight NCAA Div 1 colleges within a couple hours if I feel like a live game, lots televised if I don't.

I do wish we had an AHL team here, instead of in Houston.

Nobody cares until the winter classic on Jan 1, then after the Super bowl when things start to matter in the playoff race.

This year, they should just start the playoffs two rounds sooner with everybody in, and not even bother with a regular season. That'd be nuts. And awesome.

I'm going through bad withdrawals, and watching this isn't helping:

I know

Hockey has something that you can't get from watching other sports. A visceral feeling. Like riding my Tiger 1050 after my 2011 GSA.
Hockey is the Tiger 1050.

This lock out sucks. I blame Bettman, he has to go.
