I was wondering if people think the NHL will bounce back to what it was? IF yes how long will it take? If it does bounce back were is it most likely to bounce back first? I know I am prertty happy its all practically done. But today I feel pretty pissed that I had to go an entire winter without. I am sure there are alot of fans out there that feel the same way but mightof found better things to do with there time. People talk about how much work they need to do to try and bring upset fans back but this is thw NHL and they dont ever do anything for there faithfull except dump on us. For almost a year the PA has pretty much been saying they dont give a **** what the fans think of them and this lockout. But now its all about sucking up and all that. I love hockey and I will most likely be back but I am not that sure to what level or when I will really come back. Maybe I will never be a fan to the level I was before. Just wondering how many people would be in the same situation. Seems that the NHL doesn't really think the impact of the lockout is gonna be that severe as they still projected revuneues to be at $1.7 or $1.9billion. Message boards arent a real good indicator of what average fans think as most message board guys/gals are for the most part alittle more hard core.
