    i guess the pa has figured they will call the league's bluff and see if replacement players will wash with the fans - they've lost a wack and a bit more - whatever -

    It took 6 months into the lockout for Daly to get this frustrated?



    Yet another sign of how big these clowns really are.

    Awful pricey call. The 'PA has lost well over $1 billion already and are working on their second if it lasts into next season. Most of the owners were losing money anyway.

    Who the hell let this joker in? As big of assclowns Bettman and Goodenow are, at least they both remained civil. Someone needs to tell Jacobs to screw off because he'll whine and complain that the salary cap is too high even if it is set at 40 cents. Someone put a muzzle on him he does even less for this process than the other afore mentioned ring leaders.

    The Catholic Cardinals .. Took only a day and a half to come to an on a new Pope ..

    Perhaps the NHL should fly some of these guys in to help reach an agreement.??

    If nothing else offer the last rights when the NHL is put to rest forever ..
     
  9. wow, these guys need to shut up and get a ****ing deal done.

    Jacobs is speaking for the majority and if not a healthy portion of the other 29 owners can ignore him and take the players offer. Don't see it happening though.

    What a joke. At this point the owners can get just about any fair deal they want other than taking x% of league revenues and dividing by 30. I mean come on, that was the deal they were trying for 2 years ago...don't they realize they've already lost a season and that the players are never going to agree to that?

    The joke is that everyday that the union keeps stalling and playing games, the lower the cap gets. The players need to open there eyes and come to grips with the fact that the league will get there way.

    How is the union stalling and playing games? Because they are looking at new concepts they are playing games? Jacobs is the one that blew up not the union. Jacobs is the one who insist on playing the my way or the highway card and yet this is the same Jacobs that signed most of the contract that put salaries out of porportion. What an idiot this man truly is.

    This man needs to be removed from future meetings. Whether his point is right or wrong, he blows up at every meeting and its not helping the situation in any way.

    I am fairly certain that most are undrafted and would be fine to use as Replacements ..

    Jacobs is an idiot for the ages. If I'm a governor of a team that isn't necessarily looking for linkage, I am peeved. This guy has no right to poison the atmosphere when it appears the NHL has reached a fork in the road (impasse versus settlement).

    I think it's also obvious by now that neither side is looking for a quick settlement. I don't think impasse will be used since it doesn't give the league much leverage when some teams are against it. I think this lockout will simply roll over into next season...

    Le'ts really analyze what's going on here. The owners have been waiting to go to court since 1999. We should be embarassed that we follow this lockout.

    Frustrated, and rightfully so.

    The sooner the PA is humbled is the day we play hockey. Absolutely ridiculous that the NHLPA has defeated this process, and hopefully the courts settle this the logical way.

    Yeah, we need more hard line conservatives so we can get an even tougher cap.

    Can't see the white smoke if one's head is sufficiently lodged in their own chimney...

    Well he is Bettmans right hand man. Gary doesn't make a move without Jacobs says so. With people like Jacobs in change no one should be shocked why the owners haven't moved off their orginal hardline stance.

    I'll agree that Jacobs probably shouldn't be involved in the meetings, but the only reason that the NHLPA is focused on exploring "new concepts", is that they continue to use every avenue to avoid addressing the financial problems of the league. Goodenow's plan continues to be to stall, bait and switch, etc., in the hopes that eventually the owners will once again fold and give the players the key to the vault. I think "Deadline Bob" has gone to the well one too many times. If the league has to open with replacement players - Goodenow and his hardliners are finished.
