    In shocking news today the people of Pittsburgh suffered a great tragedy, when a simple joke caused the deaths of thousands in steel town as Penguin hockey fans clutched at their chests and died from heart attacks simultaniously...

    I was hoping he would do something like that too, although it isn't a very professional thing to do.

    I hope he cracks some jokes though, to lighten the air a little.

    Agreed. The best thing he could say is, "It's great to be back in business! Let's get the business of this league going again ... with the first selection ..."

    Bettman's speach for tommorrow:

    "Thank you, thank you all for coming to the 2005 NHL entry draft. About a year ago the players and the owners sat down to address the need of a new collective bargaining agreement. As the weeks wore on, it became increasingly apparent that this issue would not be settled quickly. As the deadline approached, I was faced with the decision of what to do with the NHL season - ultimately it had to be cancelled. Everyone was upset; the fans, the players, the owners, and my mom. One little lockout and my mom got scared. And said you’re moving with your aunte and uncle in bel-air. I pulled up to the house about seven or eight, and I yelled to the cabby "Yo homes, smell ya later." Looked at my kingdom, I was finally there, To fill my throne as the Prince of Bel Air.

    Peace out! Lockout4life!"

    I'd love to see Lemieux and Crosby set up a light jab at Mario's long-ago decision not to go up on stage with Pens management. Basically, have Sid stay in his seat for a few seconds with a stoic look on his face.

    Actually, that would be rather funny. Too bad there won't be any fans present, so the effect would be lost.

    I wouldnt mind a joke except the Pens website already has declared Crosby to be the Pens pick. They are already advertising Crosby stuff going on sale.

    What about fans of other teams who suddenly think, "My God, we traded for Crosby"...?
