With the Red Wings playing their last regular season game tonight and the season as a whole ending Sunday, my question to the board is what was your thoughts on the season? When the lockout ended I was skeptical and told myself I would not be watching that much until the playoffs began and would drop in from time to time to catch a Wings game. However, this year I found myself following much closer than I usually do and even just watching other games despite not caring about either team. My thoughts and reasoning for my more attentitive following was in fact the shortened season. The year prior when the NBA locked out they saw some of their best regular season ratings by having a shorter season. Now I don't know about how the NHL ratings did this year, but I personally think they should lower the games of te regular season to a number like 60 games. In an effort to just get some different opinions and start discussion my question is what did you think of the shortened season and did you watch more or less than usual. And sorry for the long and wordy post.
