Hockey in 2005?

Sure looks like Hockey will make it's way back in 2005. A deal may be imminent including many rule changes? How will the fans react? Will Hockey get a similar backlash that Baseball did a decade ago? Can the tiny sport handle such a snubbing? Will they make it enough of a product that it can become a major sport again? Does anyone care?
Hockey is one of those things that you have to see live to enjoy - it does not translate well on to television - at least not yet. The rules keep changing and it makes it hard for people to "get it". All I know is that Nascar ratings beat the crap out of most all sports at this point. I don't "get that", let's watch cars race around in a circle, oops, oval and hope for a crash. I thought sport was something that required 100% person power. If that is it, then Hockey qualifies. These guys are in shape - much like basketball players. Football Players at the skill positions are as well, but the non-skill football and baseball players leave a lot to be desired - ever see a fat hockey player?
I for one would like to see Hockey again and like to see it thrive. It is a greuling sport that requires power and skill and all of that on a ice skates. Here is hoping it comes back new and improved.
