    They should just televise the KHL games over here.

    Anyone found a legal way to watch them?

    I agree completely. If you find a way definitely let us know.

    This whole thing has killed my hockey boner :(. I might take in some CHL this year. I grew up in Oshawa, but have never seen the Generals play :lol:.

    I'll be following Magnitogorsk until my boys can come back home. :(

    Good thing I didn't put any money towards this year's Winter Classic like me and some friends had been planning to.

    This. I'm just so pissed and annoyed I don't care anymore. If they lose another season after what happened seven years ago they deserve to lose a bunch of fans.

    NFL for me this fall.

    Speaking as a Leafs fan, I choose to view this as the NHL saving me from myself. Thank you NHL for sparing me the agony of watching the Leafs, now I can switch to fantasy mode and make believe they're on their way to the cup.

    While I am far less than thrilled by the lockout I figure this gives the Pens D prospects time to mature in the minors. If they end up canceling the whole season then some of those guys will probably be ready for the NHL next year :lol:

    Also a leafs fan. Luckily, I'm also an Argos and Raptors fan. I don't know what I'd do if all i watched was NHL hockey (like many people i know...)

    NHL hockey is the only sport I watch besides the occasional F1 race. This frees up a lot of time for me to actually play guitar :lol:

    My dad and I are both extremely irritated at the lock out. We need our Bruins fix! Hopefully they get this shit figured out this weekend. I heard on NHL Home Ice (Sirius XM) that they have something like 2 weeks to figure this out before they have to cancel the season, or at least cut off some of the 82 (i think) games of the season.

    From what I read they'll be canceling it a month at a time. So far only the preseason games have been canceled and they've got two weeks before they would need to start canceling regular season games. I believe they said they would cancel one month at a time.

    To be fair, I'm also a Jays fan. Get to watch a losing team year round :)

    I'm a fan as well. Not to derail this thread, but what a disappointment this season was...

    I laughed at the League's admission that they're screwing their fanbase. They made it sound as if they were powerless to do anything about it.

    I also laughed at Sportcenter's rebroadcasting of Canadian World Junior championship wins. Makes it seem like we're trying to pat ourselves on the back when they're showing wins 7 years ago.
