American hockey fans, like the ones here celebrating the Stanley Cup in Los Angeles, might not be as forgiving as Canadians when the NHL finally does return, writes one user.

The NHL lockout has cost the league and its players a lot of fans in the United States, writes one user.
At the end of his blog posted Thursday, Hockey Night in Canada Radio host Gord Stellick said even though he's a passionate hockey fan, he's not interested in the particulars of the lockout.

In 1994, he thought the lockout was a life or death issue.

"Now, I don't care," he wrote. "Do what you wish and what you believe is right or want us to believe is right. Not my problem and not my No. 1 priority (I guess having two children since 1994 understandably has changed my perspective)."

Responding to Stellick's column, CBCSports.ca user high3a points out the NHL has probably lost a lot of fans down south due to the lockout.

This lockout might be a fairly important issue in Canadian NHL market area and a handful of US ones.

I am quite certain that in a lot of the American NHL cities there are very few people that are even aware that this is going on and couldn't care less.

That is where it may kill NHL hockey entirely and I for one will be glad to see it happen. The only ice that makes sense in those places belongs in their cocktails.
