Would you watch replacement players?
Ah, the eternal question. I would. So would cousin BJ:
In all honesty, I would pay to watch replacement players - assuming an AHL skill level, lower ticket prices and that some NHL players would cross the picket line to play.Then again, we are hockey-mad Canadians who by next year will be so starved to see players decked out in NHL threads that we'll watch anything. The real question is, how many people in Anaheim will turn out to watch? And, going on the premise that replacements fly in Canada and a few northeastern states, but bomb elsewhere, where does that put ownerships' strategy?
