Poll: Canadians share their plans for the NHL lockout

Sad Leafs fan

Another day, another poll asking Canadians about the NHL lockout.

This latest poll, conducted by Ipsos Reid, asked Canadian hockey fans how they plan to spend the time they would’ve spent watching the NHL on Saturday night.

The results:

Given a list of activities, more than one-third (35%) will fill their hockey-watching time by spending more time with friends and family. Three in ten (30%) will replace time spent watching hockey by watching other sports, while two in ten (17%) will exercise or play other sports. Others will go to the movies (14%), get more sleep (13%), or even cry because there is no hockey (3%).

Personally we like the “get more sleep” option. You can never go wrong with more sleep. Plus, it’s sort of like watching the Calgary Flames anyway.

Poll: Most Canadians don’t care about the lockout

    The difference between Canadians and Americans. The Canadians have cold winters and many minor league teams and prospect leagues. In America we have very few of either, and therefore we cannot get our hockey fix as easy.
