    Ask your boy Jeremy Jacobs. In addition to owning the Bruins, the arena, the food concession at the arena ( and for 6 other NHL teams ), he is also part owner of NESN. So Nikon, we expect you to do your part and boycott the Bruins.:deal

    fWIW it appears that cooler heads may prevail. One can hope.

    Not much love going for him around Boston lately, and he finally started to redeem himself these last few years. Before that he would put out a so-so team for over a decade because us Bruins fans are too hardcore for our own good and would go to every game we could even if it was simply the BC team in Bruins jerseys.

    This lockout may result in heroin use to cope with the pain. My 4 year old asked me why we haven't watched any Bruins games recently. Ever try to explain a lockout to a 4 year old? I imagine the sex talk will be easier. I almost cried when he asked about the Bruins.

    Should I edit the 2012 out of the title now? :lol3

    They are kicking the can down the road on the Olympics and realignment. I suspect no Olympics. :cry

    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.

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

    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.
