    I can't wait to see Gary Bettman put on that sour puss face of his when he cancels the season.He was wearing it yesterday
     
  4. Yeah, I agree. It's going to bring me a lot of joy knowing that Modano just flushed 9 million dollars down the toilet and Yzerman, Messier and Chelios lost their careers for absolutely nothing. Not to mention all the guys who are going to want to rip Goodenows head off for not getting a good deal done. :lol

    Yeah I fully agree, some of the legends are forced to quit their career to a lock-out because their greedy union boss is allegdly 'thinking about future players'...Too funny.

    The owners got themselves a 100% rollback on 04-05 salaries by just doing nothing.
     
  9. If you call upping the salary cap by 12 million dollars and then later agreeing to play under a no cap system for 2 years as nothing, then yeah. There are so many players not under contract or in the last year of their contract that a 24% rollback was a total sham right from the start. There are only about 3 or 4 PA apologists in the media who even bring it up anymore.

    Somehow I had info that told me the meeting started at 5:57 am?

    Even Bob McKenzie wishes he could get that kind of info, and I say this comfortably without having to provide some sort of link.

    Anyway, I was trying to say that we're all part of this circus too....

    If there is a season it will be 28 games against conference teams, and the playoffs will not be changed.

    http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/news_story.asp?id=114434

    I'm not expecting much from this meeting but at least there still talking. The most positive situation would be, the meeting lasting around 10 hours and then make no public comments.

    The clowns also had dinner late last night as per tsn; one had fried dough, the other just a whole bunch of cotton candy--pink, no less.

    Seriously, I just want this finished one way or the other. No one deserves what is going on--the fans, the media, even the players. Either end it or drop it.

    No one ever said the would play under the PA deal for 2 years. The league won't even agree to play under the PA deal for 2 days, it would automatically trigger the NHL deal. Try again.

    Oh, I don't know. The media sems to be squeezing as much out of this as they can. Would you rather be watching basketball highlights? :eek:

    Good god man, certainly not. Basketball? You mean those over payed guys who take violent swings at innocent fans? The guys who consistently talk about how they are not getting enough playing time? SportsCenter's top 10 which always has about 9 dunks in it--at least three by our new savior "Lebron James?"

    I hate that sport. Nope, I waiting for my World Champion Red Sox to begin again if no hockey will be played. Then I'm waiting for my World Champion Patriots to select their next line of CBs in the NFL draft.

    I'm among the biggest non-PA apologists on the boards ... the fact that the owners could get a 100% rollback for this year, and next if they want, just shows how dumb the 24% rollback idea was.

    If I were an owner it would have been my first response back in December.
