The NHL lockout is an ugly beast. We've seen it claim the NHL preseason and, barring a major surprise, we'll see it claiming regular season games in the very near future. Fans are outraged and understandably so as the league enjoys its second lockout in nine years.
So what can hockey fans do about it? Unfortunately, not much but that hasn't stopped various groups from coming up with some inventive ideas on how to show Gary Bettman and the NHL their disgust.

We'll start with the obvious - social media and traditional methods. You can send emails to Bettman himself at his address - firstname.lastname@example.org - and pester the poor soul that's in charge of sifting through it. We imagine Bettman's secretary (or email lackey) should be enjoying plenty of job security during the lockout.
Want to call the league office? Go for it. (212)789-2000. Hey, it only took 70,000 voicemails for the NFL to bring back their officials.
