As the NHL & its players continue to talk (or not) -- apparently they were even seen in the same room at some point today  --  and a $3.4 Billion biz becomes a $2 Billion biz (or less),
both sides should be concerned about the results of a poll conducted by CBC.

The complete results are here:

Some notes: 80% of respondents are either "angry" or "don't care"; 55% support neither side, with 1/4 backing the players and 1/6 behind the owners.  78% says they won't buy a ticket this season if they play and 85% won;t buy merchandise.  71% did say they would watch on TV.

While we know these polls aren't scientific, important to realize that since this is a CBC poll, most respondents were Canadian.  One can only imagine how much worse the results would be for a US-commissioned poll.
