Too much corporate money involved for a boycott to work.

If you don't fill the stadium, then the owners lose out on secondary revenue streams from concessions, NHL jerseys, etc. Local channels like NESN won't be able to charge as much for advertising if people aren't watching the games. That would be another revenue stream that could be impacted.
