2013 NHL Season

Well, seems like they finally got their differences ($$$) ironed out. It will be interesting to see how the time off affects those players who didn't play elsewhere. Also, I am interested to see which players are called up from the AHL.

My 9 year old boy lives to play and watch hockey, so he is very happy. Personally, I was satisfied watching college hockey and the WHL games they show here on the NHL network.

Boston is a big hockey town, so I am sure the fans will jump right back in here. I do wonder about other places though.

Go Bruins!

I'm glad to see they have finally come to an agreement, it has really hurt the economy......... MILLIONS of dollars have been lost in revenues and taxes.

Meh. I'm probably not going to pay any attention until the playoffs anyway.

I think these hockey players think a little too highly of themselves considering how hockey isn't exactly right up there and various markets may be struggling to make money.

I love the Red Wings, but listening to all these interviews with these players taking their fans for granted, like yeah they will be waiting for us and all will be ginger peachy when we get what we want - makes me so mad! It would serve them right if people gave them empty seats!

I'm not so sure about that. I'm a big Bruins fan, but I'm pretty ticked off. I won't be spending a dime on my money on the NHL this year. I was ticked about the lockout back in 04 and stopped watching for a while. I had only thrown myself back into hockey again in the past few years and then they did this. Two strikes/lockouts in less than ten years? And we're supposed to just back as if nothing happened? I don't think so.

Luckily there are plenty of other options around here for watching competitive hockey. Even in other years, I won't spend the $400+ or so to bring my family to the Garden, especially when I can go to Providence and watch an AHL game for about $40 including parking. Will I catch some Bruins games on NESN this year though? Probably.

We're sorry to see our Alaska Aces loose their NHL players back to the NHL. We had 4 great players that came to town during the contract issues with the NHL. I think all 4 are from here originally. They got to play while the league was fighting. Now they have to leave and go back to the NHL. It was nice to see them here while we could!
