The demise of the NHL...

I used to be a huge NHL fan. Not anymore. I am not sure what the tipping point was for me... I would guess the most recent lockout? It really kills any credibility that these players may have when they say they are playing for the "love of the game." Which brings me to the point of this post... did anyone even know that the Stanley Cup playoffs were over? And that the Mighty Ducks won? Apparently not, as evidenced by the more than 20% drop in TV ratings for this year's playoffs. It's a damn shame. I used to be able to name every player on every team... I can't name 5 guys on the league champs. Am I to blame? Doubt it.
