Fans Should Feel No Shame

from Rory Boylen of The Hockey News,

If you can’t wait to see Dallas Star Jaromir Jagr, Carolina Hurricane Jordan Staal, New York Ranger Rick Nash, or Minnesota Wild Zach Parise and Ryan Suter, you’re not alone.

If you stand in eager anticipation for the return of NHL hockey on Saturday, whether you plan on sitting through a day’s worth of games or simply nestle in for your favorite team’s, you’re not alone.

The hockey world is with you. Welcome back, fans of the top hockey-playing league in the world.

Don’t feel shame and don’t let anyone try and call you a sucker for returning with eyes open and jaws dropped. Nothing that has transpired since October has been about you, the fan – but it’s soon to become all about you again.

There’s no fault with tuning out the league, while it tediously worked through its financial system. And there’s absolutely no fault with returning to the arenas in droves or settling in front of the television with friends to catch a glimpse of the greatest from this point in the NHL’s history.
