Default Death of hockey cards?

Between the 2012-13 hockey card rookie class, the lockout, and (especially) the fact that the USPS is more than doubling the cost to sent first class mail packages to Canada, this may be the worst time ever to be a hockey card collector. I may not get out completely, but I definitely won't be buying as many boxes and cases or putting up as many listings on Ebay as I used to.

What will the prices be to Canada? I go to the PO and can send to Can. depending on the weight for less than $3.00

what little desire I had previously has pretty much lost interest completely. At least in buying any new product. Only exception would be the occasional Sharks select card

US pulled cards stay in the US, Canadian pulled cards stay in Canada.

Hockey cards still selling pretty good IMO. I'm still collecting, lol.
