At the bottom of this story at TSN
They're very confident about the vote tomorrow....
*knocks on wood*
I though Goodenow didn't matter anymore.
What the hell. Which PC is the real one?
Are you telling me that Bettman is going to have a press conference with the PA on Thursday in Toronto, and than flying back and having one with just the NHL on Friday...which is when the lottery and schedule will be done also?
Yes that is true ..
The NHLPA members and players asked to have Bettman present, because they wanted to see the look on his face when they rejected the CBA.
Mastercard is doing a new commercial and they need that look for the Priceless part ..
you're not serious, right? like...you don't really think that...right?
please tell me the PC is gonna be on TV?
I generally find that Press Conferences have a greater impact when they are on TV and Radio.. The ones behind closed doors and closed to the public tend to keep us guessing to much as to what was said ...
He's said he thinks it will pass, so no, he's not serious.
Having said that, he'd love it if it didn't.
It's a mean nothing press conference. Why the BoG vote/announcement is being held until Friday completely escapes my comprehension because it is going to get very little media play...especially with it expected to be in the afternoon aswell. So the Crosby lotter at 4PM will prompty will get buried in the weekend.
Well done NHL Marketing Department.
so is that a yes or no? lol
I would go into convulsions laughing if that happened.
Yay! No more hockey for another year!
Everybody already knows the NHL is coming back. They were the big story last Wednesday when they came to an agreement on a day that nothing was happening in the sports world. People are overreacting about this whole marketing thing.
To those wondering if it's on TV, check out the score around 5 and it'll most likely be on. They always televise the PC's.
Next cap = $16 million.
you are SUCH a jealous boy.
There would be a mad rush of blonde bimbos divorcing hockey players.
They want to have an analytical breakdown of the vote...
What a great name for the special, "Game ON- NHLPA Ratification Vote"
I hate it when the media decides to give these things their own name. Remember the "Bertuzzi Incident," complete with its own theme music?
How DARE them have an imagination
SHAME on the media
Let me get this straight, you would be happy to go without hockey for another year or two? Time to take the PA cap off.
Man I love the sarcasm on this board!
