In this sports blog, I am doing my follow-up post to my earlier on NHL Lockout. As many of you know the NHL has reached an agreement with the players on CBA on Sunday Morning about 6:00 am ET. Does it really matter now? Will the fans come back? How will the league make a come back now? Do you think the players, owners, and NHL care about the fans?
NHL teams will be hitting the ice again for a short season. After all the silliest floating around between the owners and players, we as fan can now send a message to the league. I know for a fact the NHL deep-rooted cities will rebound because it is in the blood for those fans. I am talking cities like Detroit, Boston, New York, etc. Now what happens to the teams to the south like Tampa Bay, Phoenix that still does not have a new owner. I believe it will take NHL over ten years to pick up where they left off before this last lockout.
Lock out, I will be watching hockey because I love the sport and I am glad it is back. This will be some exciting hockey for the next few months because every game will mean something then a normal eighty-two games. I will be watching every game. I am watching the ratings and attendance around the league. I just have a feeling the hockey fans will make a statement to the league and the players. I believe that Gary Bettman and Donald Fehr need to resign and/or be fired because of this situation. Gary Bettman legacy will be having two lockouts in less than ten years. Donald Fehr will be the guy that has put two sports in Jeopardy of going away. I believe he just did it to NHL as a business. Go get some! GO WINGS! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
