Martin St. Louis wouldn't be surprised if fans didn't flock back to NHL games once the lockout is settled.
"I wouldn't blame them," he said. "I wouldn't blame them." The NHL regular season was scheduled to begin Thursday night, but the first two weeks have already been canceled and more contests will likely be cut as the work stoppage progresses. St. Louis stated at the end of September that he would start seriously considering playing elsewhere in mid-October, so look for him to get a deal done with a European club in the next few weeks.
