from Katie Carrera of Capitals Insider,
Julian Brunner from Petworth, a four-year season ticket holder in Section 410:
“In the past [Capitals owner Ted] Leonsis has spoken about how owning a team you should act like a steward for the city in caring for it, and he’s also spoken previously about how rewarding your key players is an important element for getting their buy in and building a winning franchise. Those words seem like a joke now that he’s willing to cost us fans a season of hockey (and a season the primes of our best 2-3 players) [to] put the screws to the players union and try to get them to not honor full deals that he himself signed. I’m strongly considering giving up my tickets because it makes sick to think that my money is supporting his behavior.”
Angie Secrest from Highland, Md., a five-year season ticket holder in Section 113:
“Sadly ‘this’ lockout has left me feeling incredible negative about the NHL and how it is run. To me someone should have been looking out for the best interest of the sport, a third party that wasn’t siding with players or owners but that honestly was looking out for hockey and it’s growth. This is not something that I see Gary Bettman being capable of, he is just another greedy businessman looking to line his pockets. I love hockey, but I just can’t stomach the idea that any of my money would go to any of these owners or the NHL ever again.
