I know what you mean too. Living out of my home state, watching the games is one the few things I have to make me feel more connected. I'm actually home for Thanksgiving right now, and drove past Joe Louis Arena last night...it was sad.

And of course ESPN isn't covering the NHL right now...what is there to cover? They aren't playing so there are no games to discuss. The talks have ceased so there is no news to report. What are they supposed to do? Spend 10 minutes saying "the NHL is still in a lock out..."

My son is a huge Flyers fan and he is pretty hockey starved as well.

Living in Northern California, we don't have college hockey, but we do have 2 minor league teams. Neither is at an arena that I'm comfortable going to (Stockton & So. San Francisco). We might consider the SF arena, especially of there's a day game, but we really want our Sharks back!

It is a lock out, not a strike. And if the objective of the owners was to alienate and lose those casually interested in the game, whom they need for the sport to grow, they're doing a bang up job of it.

Sad that the Kings probably won't get to defend their title.

I miss the Saturday night rituals with the game on during the cold months.
It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice.

We don,t have a team in Seattle, but we live close enough to Vancouver BC to make a lot of people here fans, BIG fans. We do have a juniors team locally.

I became a fan by default, that's what happens when you marry a Canadian! He is missing it so much he is watching old re-run games on the NHL channel (came with the package)

I probably should say Seattle doesn't have a team, yet, as they are trying really hard to get on to come here.

Yep, here in Chicago it's a sad state of affairs. And of course nobody is watching it......there are no games!!
NY here

Rangers ok

Islanders and Sabres are horrible..

And nobody on WFAN could care the NHL is on a strike..

It is a fringe sport.. MMA gets more ratings on Spike TV then the NHL

I'm a true Blackhawks fan but I really love the Canadiens crest . Original six hockey is still the best. Doesn't matter if people think it's a "fringe" sport. Us Hockey fans KNOW it's the greatest sport in the world. When it does come back I'll be at the United Center and I hope the 1st home gane is Hawks & Montreal!
We're not the only people on this Island and we all know it!

I am missing hockey big time. Just went to an AHL game on Friday. Gotta support the minor leaguers if the NHL isn't interested in our money.

I am quite serious when I say IMHO the ONLY good thing about winter in Detroit is watching the Red Wings games. We are feeling the loss BIG TIME, and my heart breaks for the downtown restaurants and vendors that are losing out on the revenue they depend on for a living.

Got my hockey fix earlier today. AHL teams Albany Devils and Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins played a game in Atlantic City. The AHL Devils are playing three additional games there this season as well.
