My drinking is half of what is was this time last year and I'd probably be down $400 or so by now.

I don't mind right now with the nfl! Checking out the abbotsford heat is actually pretty entertaining!

I'll miss the NHL a ton during February and march where I do quite well!

Otherwise, the quality of hockey, you can find in many places around the lower mainland. Hell, I have a ton of fun playing Rec leagues during the week! I don't miss the NHL in the least right now.

The NHL in game experience has gone way down. I rather go out to a bar and spend too much money on women I can't stand than support shitty beer, listen to shitty beiber and call me maybe garbage and ridiculous parking costs for a hockey game right now!

Way to go NHL! Even the ultra popular NFL is struggling at the gate right now. There is zero point to paying 300$ every game for in person pro hockey with huge hd screens in Ur homes!

The NHL is never going to be the same after this lockout!

I find it less stressful on a daily basis not gambling on Hockey..

 

I have a great deal more time in the mornings NOT having to look over games and statistics...And then deciding if I want to take the team or the ML play (on occasion)....

 

I do not miss the bad beats, bad bets and the misconception that I can make a living at betting Hockey.... Especially not having the balls to bet a thousand dollars on '' A SURE THING'' ????

 

I do miss the game itself though..............

Some people don't know sarcasm when they read it, I'm  actually going to the library today to get a few books to help pass the time.  

....and maybe some Earl Grey tea and biscuits as well.

Actually I'm a bigger hockey fan than "NHL" fan. I'll be there Friday night in abbotsford. I go to giants games! Yeah I'll watch it on tv, I never said I wouldn't watch but I'll never go to another NHL game in person.

If u actually think the NHL won't be affected by the lockout, well, Ur as dense as Shane Doan! 
Wake up, even the NFL, that is 30 times more popular than the NHL, is struggling big time to draw fans at games. HD screens, fantasy football and cold beer at home is killing the nfl experience in the stadium!

Consumerism is changing! The music industry changed, porn industry and even illegal film downloads are being tracked by ip addresses in a mass lawsuit on the way.

Going to see an NHL game is a major investment, once u take people out of that inexplicably expensive foray then Ur really testing Ur faith in Ur fan base loyalty!

There must be something more to this than we know...

 

You would think the Hockey industry would not '' implode itself '' this way .............. Yet they are................. WHY WOULD THEY DO SUCH A THING.....?? How could they...????...

 

It is way beyond my intelligence to understand why grown men would throw young athletes to the lions this way............. WAS HOCKEY SO POORLY ORGANIZED AND DISTRIBUTED that BILLIONS of dollars would be sacraficed this way..?????????

 

What about all the small business people and the workers in and around the arena's.....?????? Has anyone considered what this is doing to the economy of many many cities in U.S. and Canada..????????????............................................................

 

Something is sorely remiss in this Hockey Dysfunctional Debate.. Something WE FANS know NOTHING about................

I don't know who is winning or losing in this strike or lockout or whatever but it's not me. I love the minor leagues and always have. I've got 3 to choose from if you count jrs.  I don't give a good goddamn about the NHL anyway.   They do this shut down regularly now. They aren't on my radar. bomb

Sad thing is the league is not what it was in my childhood. Too many teams, too many head shots, etc.But  I do miss seeing some of the high skill players like Crosby, Malkin, Giroux, Tavares, etc. I have a lot of old NHL footage on DVD like Schultz and Terry O'reilly fight  the th

I've been making small wagers on the nba as well but a goddamn Raptors game on tv ain't worth picking up a 6-pack for.

Good to hear from you Lancelot!

Im missing the old NHL but its doesnt look like we will see any games now this season

I have tried a few a few AHL bets but damn those games are unpredictable!!!

It could be worse though,You could live in England and have to put up with sub zero temperatures and no summer lol
