I did manage to sneak by the NHL store a custom Bruins jersey that says "Bettman sux" on the back. All sides are ass holes on this. Split it 48/48. Take 2 percent and put it in a concussion fund. Take the other 2 percent and put it in Crosby's charity that makes sure kids have hockey equipment in PA. Expand the charity across the country and ensure you have great future players.


Why yes I am available to be commissioner.

LOL You have my vote. Although I think many owners would be filing for chapter 11, at least they feel they would need to..

That would be just the devils, stars, Phoenix, and the FL teams. Most of which I would relocate

I refuse to be a sports hostage. Enoughs enough. At this point the NHL needs me more than I need them.

My guess? This will end up costing them big time.

It saddens me that they do not realize this. I will always be a fan, not matter what, but I know that is not the general consensus. They just cannot afford to play this out, they need to agree on something soon.

If they go past the winter classic they will have lost their minds. By black Friday and I think they can salvage it.

College and international. The World Juniors is some of the best hockey you'll find - spirited, competitive, and some impressive raw talent.

Saw a few games live in Saskatoon a few years ago and it was really impressive.

The only good thing that could come of this is if it fucks them over just enough so tickets for Bruins games are cheap again.

A brief article from one of my favorite publications, The Economist. They agree with me: expansion was an overreach, and revenue sharing won't put butts in the seats in the sun belt.
