Fuck the NHL - bunch of cocksuckers. How many families that rely on the NHL each year have gone hungry because a bunch of spoilt rich fucks won't bay an equally spoit bunch of fucking hockey players?

For these players that are being paid $1m + per year loss of half a season is nothing hell even the loss of a season isn't that bad. But the loss of a season for someone running a concession stall could mean the loss of their home.

Get back to work you selfish fucks.

HOCKEY IS BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Quote:
It took 16 hours of talks in New York on Saturday, with concessions from both sides. It took 113 days. A total of 625 regular-season games were sacrificed, or over half the 2012-13 season. It took months of bitter sniping, petty politics, false hope and broken hearts.
But at around 5 a.m. on Jan. 6, the word finally spread around the hockey world: The NHL and the NHLPA had reached a verbal agreement on a tentative framework for a new Collective Bargaining Agreement.
Drop the puck. The NHL will be finally back, with a 10-year CBA solidified between union chief Donald Fehr and Commissioner Gary Bettman. As Fehr said, via Sportsnet: "Any process like this is difficult; it can be long...we have the framework of a deal."

I am reserving celebration until the votes are officially done. You never know what these fuck sticks are going to pull.

Gary Bettman is fcuking jerk off. His divisive attitude dragged this fiasco out way longer than it needed to.

Someone needs to off this midget.

Note to fellow northern neighbors get on the moto & do a driveby on him
See this is my problem.... Bettman gets all the blame and I don't know why. The owners hire him to represent them. They relay how they feel and vote on how they want him to act. He is just the puppet used to distract people. Based on what he is payed to do, he did it well. The players could have gotten more if they held out for the season.

Well, I've decided.

The Leafs for most my life (I know, I know), then the Devils when I lived nearby. Never really warmed up to the Hurricanes in the 5 years we were in NC (except when the Leafs played) and I kinda lost interest. But now I've lived near Philly for more than 2 years. And you know, this town's got the right spirit. So....

Let's Go Flyers!!!

Bruins fans, since getting tickets for opening day is probably going to be hard as hell you guys wanna meet up at a bar around Boston to celebrate hockey being back/watch the game?

I might be able to if, it doesn't take place on the 15th. That is my wedding anniversary. While my wife understands my love for hockey, and she is a forgiving lady, I would never hear the end of it.

Then you should be dropping hints for her to get you tickets just take her out to a nice place in the north end before the game.
