Well there may not be any NHL hockey for the foreseeable future but get out and look around in your area. I’ll bet you can find some youth, rec league, high school or college hockey in your area.
Doesn’t even have to be ice hockey, it’s all hockey! I’ll bet you enjoy it as much or more.
Don’t complain about greedy players or owners, they are just trying to demonstrate how tough they are. Ignore them. Go find hockey in your area, I’ll bet it ends up meaning more to you than the NHL ever did.
Let me know what you find.
