The lockout is finally over, and now we are getting word of when things will start. Camps are said to be beginning Sunday, and the Bruins will open their season in Boston against the Rangers on January 19th at 7pm. What should be an awesome game to start the season, as the Rangers are stacked.
There are basically 4 categories of people when it comes to the end of the lockout...
The "Boo It's Back": Which are people who just hate the sport. There is nothing you can do about this.
The "I'm Never Coming Back": These guys are so turned off by the way the NHL has been run that they are leaving the sport. I have been one of these in the past and I came back, but this is the type of person teams have to be worried about.
The "NHL Is A Mess, But I Love My Team": This is where I am. I know the NHL's true problems aren't going away. I know the best thing would've been it to fail and start over, but I love the Bruins. I am going to watch.
The "I Fucking Love Hockey": This guys are like the "Boo It's Back", there is nothing you can do to stop their love for their sport.
It's actually impressive that each of our writers fall into a different category. DP is "Boo It's Back", I'm "NHL Is A Mess, But I Love My Team", and Cap is "I Fucking Love Hockey.
