    "If I can't convince my mom about the issues, how do I explain them to the fans who work their hands to the bone in their various jobs every day?

    "I understand that with the money we make, it would be asinine to suggest to the average worker that there is a problem with money. But this (labour dispute) is about much more than dollars.

    "I just wish people knew the intricacies involved."


    Well for starters Keith you could try explaining those "intricacies" to the fans and your mom so you don't look like a greety nitwit!

    but mom!

    I can just picture the 6'4" 225 pound Primeau being drug by the ear behind a woodshed by some old 5' nothing lady screaming the whole way. :lol

    ohhhhh mercy.
    Still now I expect in 12 hours that her words will have been taken out of context >_>

    Yeah, it's kind of classic political nonsense. If only you could understand how difficult it is...

    I find it funny that Primeau's idea of charity is playing a pickup game and charging people money to see it. I hope these players are actually donating money as well.

    I am anything but pro-player in this dispute, but Primeau, along with other NHLers, using their fame and skill to generate money for a charity is worthwhile and deserving of praise, even if they keep their wallets closed.

    Well the upside for Mrs. Primeau is that she doesn't have to side with one son and not the other.

    Wow, big sacrifice on his part. Most people I know involved in charity have full time jobs, families, financial commitments, yet make the time to be involved. Primeau and other players big contribution is playing a pickup game. Keep it in perspective, these guys could do a lot more.

    Opposite sides?

    I think there's a strong possibility that the Wayne Primeaus of the league stand to lose a lot more from the NHL's attempt at imposting a cap than the Keith Primeaus of the league do. No matter what happens, the superstars of the league are going to be the most sought after, as they're the guys that can make the biggest impact on a franchise. In a world with a hard cap, teams will free up as much space as they can to bring in these players. What would this mean? The role-players of the league would make a lot less money.

    In response to the overall subject, I get a kick out of how the media's always talking about how the NHLPA is getting killed in the "court of public opinion". What frustrates me is, few reporters comment on WHY. The thing is, fans in Canada are biased, plain and simple. Pretty much every team in Canada (except Toronto) would benefit greatly from the hard cap the owners are pushing for. They're struggling to compete under the current system. Of course the vast majority of the fans are on the owners side. Thankfully, this dispute won't be decided in the "court of public opinion."

    No matter how old you are, your Mom is still able to slap you upside the head and have you saying "Ouch Mom, i'm sorry, i'm sorry" and have you confused.

    I hope Keith is getting alot of those. Wayne is probably in the good books for good till he does something stupid.

    I do free tax returns for the poor and provide bookkeeping assistance for local fundraisers. Even I could do more. If I was rich, I would do more.

    Don't heep praise on someone like Primeau for playing a pickup game in order to get everyone else to donate. My point is to keep this in perspective. What he's doing takes VERY little effort.

    If you guys think otherwise, get involved in charity and you'll see what I mean.
