It thought it was thursday.
Anyone want to hazard a guesse, on the Time of the Press Conference?
Nothing really to add to this except that I recently switched to Firefox......viva la revalucion!
4 more days till madness..
MADNESS I SAY.
That moron Goodenow and that idiot Arturs Irbe are holding up the process.
I'll guess noon eastern. I thought the press conference would be on Thursday.
2 more weeks brah!
I always liked Irbe until this past year.
The guy is like 500 years old now and is trying to ruin everything because he's a talentless sack of crap who just made 3 million in 2003-04 to be a mediocre ECHL goalie.
Sigh... even when they have the deal in principle, they're still dragging it out.
yup, these guys dont do anything fast do they? i work on friday so i might not be able to watch it live.... this sucks
Friday instead of Thursday. What's the big deal?????
It's not really a big deal. I mean the lockout lasted 301 days, so one more day in the grand scheme of things isn't going to make a huge difference.
However, it is annoying. And I think fans have the right to be annoyed.
What good does it do to be annoyed. It won't change the fact that the PC will be held Friday instead of Thursday. I think that you guys have to much stress in your lives. Learn to go with the flow.
so the BOG will be on the same day as the press conference?
The problem is that now all the PC quotes and news for the newspapers will be on a weekend which is bad for spreading word around. Another STUPID move by the morons of the NHL.
What I don't get is why be annoyed at Irbe? The PA stuff still appears to be going to schedule (Exec committee meeting Tuesday, agent breifing Tues, meeting/start of voting Wednesday, end of voting/final tally Thursday).
What got moved back is stuff on the league's end with the press conference (or, with what very well be the main reason, the ability of principal members of both sides to be available for a NYC conference).
its 2006, news is everywhere
Being annoyed is just a feeling. Feelings are irrational at times. It might not do anyone any good, and it won't change the fact that the PC will be on Friday, but that doesn't mean people aren't going to get annoyed anyways.
I don't think it has to do with stress as much as it has to do with having a year without hockey. That one more day just prolongs things.
Anyways, you gave some good advice. Go with the flow.
To be honest I don't know where the Irbe stuff is coming from either.
Maybe in 2006 it is. But us humanoids stuck in 2005 still don't have news on our pillows yet.
It's a combination of two things:
1. Ignoramuses assuming that any delay must be because certain NHLPA members are trying to kill the deal.
2. Goodenow/NHLPA haters desperate to get their last few licks in before no one cares about any of this stuff anymore and their acts become tired and unwanted.
...who led his team to the Stanley Cup finals in 2002.
And whats up with everyone thinking it's going to be a delay as a result of a deal-kill?
They're holding a meetinig with over 700 players on the ins and outs of this new CBA. 600 pages to decipher for players and their agents. Oh, and they still have to vote. I was shocked that it was friday, they're rushing this along. All for the fans.
LOL I was thinking about that as I ate, " I typed 2006 didn't I?"
I am not saying that poeple don't have the right to be annoyed by the NHL. But it makes more sense to me anyway that both sides ratify the deal Thursday and have the PC Friday. Patience my friends is coming.
