    Is it possible to say his exact words?

    I mean, did he say it'll be announced thursday, he expect it to be announced thursday, he think it won't be announced before thursday, it'll be announced at the latest thurday...?

    I'm optimistic, but I see this draggin until next week.

    Because he thinks it's funny that Spungo continues with his predictions and wants to string him along just a little longer?

    I get the feeling he doesn't have any idea what's going on and Thursday will pass with no deal.

    Today is Tuesday..

    T-U-E-S-D-A-Y

    Then comes Wednesday. THEN Thursday.

    that means you can't say if there is a deal or not yet, because you are not a fortune teller.

    But I know you're just here to make everyones blood boil.

    You probably arent even a hockey fan. I expect you banned if not within the comming weeks, before the season starts.

    Bank on that, my pudgy little friend.

    Thor is the mightiest of the Norse Gods, that's why.

    Wasn't Steve Thomas one of the first guys to come out and say if it takes a cap simular to basketball and football then maybe they should look at it ... only to come out right after and say he was misquoted??

    Probably the same deal here ... he didn't say Thursday he said by thanksgiving day..... :innocent:

    No, you're not here to talk about hockey. You are here to troll around and piss people off.

    No kidding. Hand writing is extremely over-rated these days. I mean, say if there's a smudge, or Bettman has crappy hand writing, the Cap could go from 36 million to 46 million. You never know. ;)
