NHL Boycott

So, Bettman and company are making noises about an NHL lockout again. Rather than sitting around and ineffectually raging about "billionaires arguing with millionaires" like everyone else, I wanted to float the idea of a fan's boycott around. Since this would be the second lockout within 8 seasons (the 2004-05 season was completely lost, for those who don't know), I for one have had it with enabling these fools to do this sort of thing to us fans.

One thing to note here would be that NBC has a fresh new contract with the NHL that guarantees payments for some unknowable reason. So, I think that any NHL boycott would have to involve them.

Does anyone have any thoughts or ideas about getting something like a boycott going?
