TORONTO - Hockey fans across Canada are fed up with the NHL lockout and are bitter enough to walk away from the game they love, according to a recent poll.

A whopping 76% of Canadians identifying themselves as fans of NHL hockey feel this season will be "lost entirely," and almost half said "they would be less likely to attend a game as a result of the lockout," according to an Abacus Data survey conducted this past weekend.
