But I'm even more surprised that I am starting to just not care. It's not that I don't miss it. It's just that I don't miss it as much as I would have expected.
I consider myself a big fan... wouldn't say "die-hard", but certainly one who follows the league, watches every game I can, knows the "going-ons", gets excited for the playoffs, etc...
If I am at all representative of the fan base, both sides better get their stuff together, quickly.

Interested in hearing you think there will be a winner; League loses revenue, Players lose a year of salary, and owners have to spend money to win back fans. I guess I would agree with the KHL being a winner...

You are giving up your limited window to earn (solidify, if you financially plan right) a living in sports and you are giving that up to whom? If you are naive enough to think in 10 years from now some player is going to seek you out to shake your hand for standing up to ownership by forcing them to pay a minimum 50% of every dollar made, you are nuts. Get back to the table and get this done.
I am in the same boat as Guinness on this: Care enough to hold interest in what's going on, losing that interest as time goes by.

(don't know how to do a poll post)
My vote for this season is that I am not rushing back to see any game, but would go if the Pens played local to me.
