While most fans cheered Sunday's news that the NHL lockout was set to end, many wondered how much damage the sport had sustained among its fan base.
In Voorhees, New Jersey fans told FOX 29 they were thrilled to hear that hockey was on its way back, but voiced their frustration over the long hiatus.
"I think this whole thing was just egos, like politics, and I think everybody met in the middle and got where they needed to be and hopefully we don't do this again," one fan said.
Other fans were just happy to know that at least a shortened version of the season would be played this year.

It was a gloomy Sunday as the whole area remain socked in with low clouds & fog, drizzle and scattered showers.
The weather remains unsettled through most of the work week. The difference is that it will really warm up -- temperatures soar into the 80s by Tuesday. That mild and humid air mass will fuel afternoon thunderstorms.
By Thursday a cold front moves by bringing more rain. It will also bring drier and cooler weather by Friday as we finally clear out.
