    I'm glad NHL hockey is back, but....

    Like everyone else, I'm glad the NHL is back, but, I was really frustrated with the lockout and everything that came with it. I actually came back to the hobby in the 04-05 lockout year, but the summer after, so I didn't really experience it then. For some reason, I didn't like the feel of this lockout from start to finish. I also don't like the idea of coming back to the hobby full strength to prop up the NHL. After all, the NHL is not the be all end all of hockey.

    I don't know what any of you are planning to do, but here are my plans for at least one year.
    • No purchasing of NHL licensed paraphernalia including: Hockey cards, jerseys, hats, etc.
    • No watching of live or any NHL level hockey game or clip that would provide advertisement or "eyeball" revenue to the NHL (for example, through CBC or TSN)
    • No purchasing or trading for any 12-13 NHL licensed hockey card product

    My dollars might not be much or mean much, but I really don't want to reward them for bringing back their business. I'll have to see how I feel about them a year from now.

    Is this too harsh? Not enough?

    I'm going to go about my life as I have. Life is too short to worry about this. Im going to watch. If I see a nice shirt, I'll buy it. If I want a box of cards, I'll grab it. I won't go to any games, but I wasn't going to anyway. Basically I'm just going to be the fan I've always been and hope that this was "THE" standoff that finally draws the line between the two sides so future CBAs can be signed before more games are lost.

    Idk if this is a good example but it's like not being invited to a party but going anyways and then throwing a tantrum and getting pissed off when the host says "we'll resume the party next week" .
