Landeskog wants you to see this anti-lockout video

Sep 3, 2012, 6:47 PM EDT

On Friday, the same day that the CBA negotiations stalled, a fan-made video entitled “‘Together We Can’ #nolockout” was posted on YouTube. Since then it’s gone viral with over 145,000 views and more than a thousand comments.

Judging by some of those comments and the sheer ratios of likes/dislikes, it seems like the video has been very well received. It also struck a cord with 2012 Calder Trophy winner Gabriel Landeskog, who tweeted that the video gave him chills.

In the video description, the author concedes that the video has an NHLPA bias, but adds that “I hope you guys understand the main message and idea of the video even if you were standing in a neutral position.”

    Pretty good video, although I don’t feel there is much, if anything, the fan can do. The players don’t want to get bent over while the owners just want money. If there is any way I can help with this please let me know.

      Isn’t it the fans who volunteer to spend there money which ultimately become the revenue?

    Like I said about Phaneuf and Elisha Cuthbert, the players play and the pimpers pimp. Everybody has a boss and that’s the way it’s always going to be

    everyone should watch it
    as fans even though we have rivalries between each other we must come together some how I say boycotting the first couple games of your respective team if there is no lockout that’s just mmy opinion

    Great video, very moving. We can do something! Write Gary Bettman or your team’s owner or someone and tell them how much worse a lockout would be than getting a few less percentage of the revenue. Tell them how much you love hockey, how bad life would be without it. Maybe they’ll at least feel something.

      I’m sure the only feelings the owners have are those that they can buy. Or maybe they can pull the puppet strings on Bettman to make him look sad for them.

    Amazing video.It shows every reason why I love hockey,aside from the hatred directed toward Simmonds.The part at the end with Ray Bourque and his son and the infamous Stephane Matteau goal call still give me chills.Please please please no lockout.

    When this ends hit the owners where it hurts. In non-hockey related revenue. Buy nothing at the concession stands or team stores. If possible take public transportation to stop the fortune they make in parking. If your owner owns a local business boycott it. Example Comcast owns the flyers. If you have an alternative cancel it and let them know why you are canceling it. If the owners get their way again this will continue to happen every few years. As for me, a long time season ticket holder a lockout of this season will end my long time support. I will not renew. I don’t expect many to follow and neither do the owners. I haven’t heard any teams saying they are doing this to make tickets more affordable. After they grind down the players they will again raise tickets prices.

    Unless the fans truly unite and begin a serious threat of a united boycott of EVERYTHING NHL….we do NOT have the power to affect change
