Did NHL Lockout Impact How You View the Bruins?
The Bruins are returning to Wilmington. But will you go see them after they were involved in a bitter labor dispute along with the rest of the league?
The NHL lockout is over. But will you be heading out to see the local team any time soon?
Players, owners and fans reacted with excitement on Sunday as it was announced that the National Hockey League and its players association agreed to the framework of a deal that will end the standoff that lasted more than 100 days.
Now the team is set to return to Ristuccia Arena, its officially practice facility, possibly within the next several weeks and the black and gold may be back on the ice of TD Garden by January 19.
But has the lockout impacted your desire to go see the team play?
Historically, labor disputes have had some impact on attendance on games and practices, at least temporarily.
So we want to know. Did the NHL lockout make you less likely to attend a practice in Wilmington or a game in Boston? What's your reaction to the end of the lockout? Who do you most blame for the dispute? If you were in attendance at the home opener, would you cheer the team, or boo the fact that it took so long to settle the lockout?
