I sure hope that the NHLPA & league know what they are doing - but I doubt it. The NHL has always been popular in the land of the Maple Leaf. But, in the USA, it was fairly stagnant until Gretzky took his show to LA. The NHL was growing incredibly in the USA until the strike during the '94-95 season. That strike killed all momentum for NHL hockey in the USA and it still hasn't returned to its former popularity......and so the NHL strikes again. Makes perfect sense, right?!?!? :c

Gretzky or Gordie never played in Pittsburg.

Being a hockey fan, I hope you don't live in a traditionally non hockey market with a struggling franchise. I think that if this thing goes a whole season that these types of teams will become victims of contraction.

FIRE GARY BETTMAN, BOB GOODENOW and TREVOR LINDEN.

Hey, you can't fire these guys....look at where they've taken NHL hockey...?! :fu

Oops. I guess you are right!

Franchise success in non-hockey markets are always a struggle.....usually needing strong marketing and management. Unfortunately, these franchises usually end up with ex-NHL managers running the show :al. Big mistake!
