everyone has a voice and the media as they always do would blow this way up.
You are overestimating social media. Not everyone is on Twitter, or visits Facebook non-stop, or have a Google-plus account. In my immediate family in Ottawa, out of 12 people, five don't have a Facebook account, another four have it and don't use it, and I'm the only one with a Twitter account (and I barely use that).
Even if you got enough attention for it (which you won't), would fans continue to boo during a goal? A breakaway? A fight? A great save by the home team goalie on a 2-on-1? It wouldn't last past the opening face off.
Remember, the people who are going to the game don't want to spend $100 to make a statement. They want to enjoy hockey. The moment their favourite player steps on the ice, or a great play happens, everyone will be happy. They paid money to see that. They missed it during the lockout. But the lockout is over at that point if there is a game going on, so why make a statement then?
