As the NHL lockout drags on, many hockey fans are asking themselves if they will continue buying tickets when hockey returns.

 At the Prescott Hotel, a woman says she  doesn’t mind the lockout because it gives her more time with her partner who is a huge hockey fan.  On the Team 1200, hosts Jason York and Steve Lloyd are moving onto topics other than NHL hockey to fill airtime.

At a pickup hockey game, some of the players say they have moved on.  A longtime season ticket holder says he has found other ways to spend his money. 

The longer the lockout lasts, he asked himself, will he come back?
