The return of the NHL is imminent. No concrete dates are set, but we are likely looking at January 19th as opening night.

I am happy to see hockey come back, but I am also angry that it took this long. I will watch games, I will root for the Rangers to win it all, but I will not attend a game or buy league merchandise. I will wait until next season to even consider doing so.

The other night, I asked this question:

Which local team is going to win the half-season Stanley Cup?
