Chicago Blackhawks tickets went on sale Monday with the deadline for a new CBA looming.

Chicago Blackhawks tickets went on sale Monday morning, 26 days before the Sept. 15 deadline for the NHL and NHLPA to reach a new collective bargaining agreement and prevent a locket.

Does the threat of another work stoppage deflate fans' enthusiasm to buy tickets? CSNChicago.com shows some mixed reaction from Blackhawks fans on Twitter, with some saying they won't buy tickets until there's a CBA and others waiting in line for tickets anyway.

The Blackhawks led the NHL in attendance for the fourth straight season in 2011-12 and set a franchise record with 190 consecutive sellouts through the regular season and playoffs. Chicago finished the regular season with 101 points and the No. 6 seed in the West before being eliminated in six games by the Phoenix Coyotes in the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs.
