    Yeah. I'm freaking out right now. It's all over twitter, TSN, etc etc - man oh man. It's going to be interesting to see how Toronto and Edmonton fares, considering they usually start off well the first 40 games or so and taper off later on. Heck, the whole season in general's going to be mad entertaining.

    PS: Could the leafs make the playoffs this year?
    No serious. It could actually happen hahah.

    Hallelujah! The lockout is finally over! Was having hockey withdrawal. Hopefully I will get to see my Sabres make a run.

    I would've bet the chances of this deal happening would be similar to that of the Oilers making the playoffs.

    Can only hope, the talks have not been very nice.

    Cool the Blackhawks are still undefeated though. icon_wink.gif

    not_superman saidI hope nobody shows up to their games for a while; Greedy bastards.


    They should discount seats to get back the audience... wish they had cheap tickets for the leafs like they do for the blue jays or argos

    So happy they didn't end up cancelling the whole season. The said, I kind of feel morally opposed to buying tickets and going to see games considering all of the childish bickering and crap they put us through.... Don't know if my love of hockey is going to outweigh my desire to stick it to the man.

    (Yeah... I'll probably be a tool and fork over the money for some games.)

    That's the problem. As long as we fans are suckers, both the owners and the players keep feeling free to ignore our voices and do whatever they like. Unfortunately, we wouldn't be fans too if we can't get enough of hockey. It's like a catch-22 situation for sure. Personally though, I will still watch but this lockout has definitely soured my fanaticism for hockey enough I will think twice about doing anything else that supports the NHL, until they show real signs of appreciating their fans.

    I'll be back, but will be thinking twice about buying the officially licensed gear, or buying tickets from the team (as opposed to getting them from season ticket holders).

    I've come to appreciate AHL and college hockey more during the lockout and maybe i'll continue to pay attention to and go to those games, as well. It's certainly cheaper and easier to get seats close to the action.

    The league really has to take tangible steps to win back the fans -- don't just give some pucks to some kids before the game or whatever, discount the seats, get more involved in communities, help build rinks in parks, etc., bring NHL to Seattle, and new teams to Quebec and Ontario, and ... get rid of Betmann.
