Very tough to do...I probably like the fantasy aspect more than the game...but I just can't support NHL this year.  Who else is not paying attention this year?

I wasn't until they signed the truce yayyyyyy. The best thing about hockey it is so much more watchable than the NBA. I can watch any hockey game without having a player in it. I would never watch an NBA game without my player in it. So the NBA regular season is the finale for me. I do keep track of the NBA playoff results but haven't watched an NBA playoff game since..... crap I can't think of a one?

If the first few weeks is any indication, the fans are back in full force.
Do you really care who is on my team? I have Mike Trout and Arian Foster in keeper leagues in their respective sports.

You don't accomplish anything by boycotting.  Furthermore, you accomplish even less in regards to fantasy.

I somewhat boycott.  I only watch Columbus BlueJackets games on NHL Center Ice to see Adrian Aucoin play.

Fake fans? LOL

Please.  I watch hockey.  Perhaps your pretentious self will be able to read future threads more clearly; I was specific to boycotting the NHL and NOT hockey in general.  I enjoy watching the OHL.

You must be a Leafs or Canadians fan.
