The NHL lockout is over and it looks like weâ€™ll have real live NHL hockey in less than two weeks.
But this sports labor dispute was different. Instead of advocating for a side, most fans simply looked at theÂ sheer greed of both sidesÂ with contempt.
So, we asked Sabres fans how they’ll handle a reconciliation.
“Are you going to take the NHL back with open arms… or hold a grudge?”
We heard from the “grudgers.”

We heard from the “unconditional lovers.”

@trendingbuffalo open arms. I’ll save grudges for politics.

@trendingbuffalo I’ve been missing hockey so I’m back. I cheer for the from of jersey not the back…unless its grigorenko

But like most things, the truth probably lies somewhere in between.
@trendingbuffalo love to be grudged, but I’ll be like other sheep
