02:32 PM ET 12.31 | According to the Montreal Gazette, a new poll shows that the majority of Canadian citizens don't care if the NHL lockout ends and the NHL returns to action. NRG Research Group and Peak Communications surveyed about 800 Canadians from six of Canada's regions Dec. 11-16. A small group over a five-day period is all we are talking about here. The Gazette reported that the people polled were asked, "Do you think the NHL lockout will be settled in the next couple of weeks?; In the new year in time for a shortened season to be played?; Not until it's too late for games to be played this season?; or, Don't you care?" The survey results were as followed: 58 percent indicated they didn't care if the NHL returned, 25 percent believed it was too late for a deal to get done and have some sort of an abbreviated season, 8 percent felt that a deal could get done in the new year and a shortened season played, 5 percent said a deal could get done before the new year followed by an abbreviated season and the remaining 4 percent didn't have an opinion or just didn't want to answer the question.
