NHL Season Canceled

It's official, no hockey this year.

Gary Bettman makes announcement

"It is better to post and risk reposting than to have never posted at all."

As my father used to say:

Quote:
Proper Gawd Dayum Thing!
They are a bunch of stubborn money-hungry greedy bastids. I have no pity for either side.

Quote:
"This is a sad, regrettable day that all of us wish could have been avoided," he said.
**** off Bettman.

+1

If I had to pick a side in this dispute, it would be with the owners. Kinda like the lesser of two evils.

Re: NHL Season Canceled

Yep. The NHL is officially the "No Hockey League" now.

I say "So what?" It's about time these players realized their sport isn't popular here. You don't see Major League Soccer players demanding a $49 million salary cap. The players who believe they are worth big money have to play outside the US, because we ain't buying either sport for those kind of dollars.

Re: NHL Season Canceled

I care! I'm gonna miss hockey b/c I hate the NBA and baseball is just boring(course maybe someone will explode due to all the juice MLB players are on) That would make baseball interesting.

Re: NHL Season Canceled

Basketball sucks. Football is a one day a week sport??? Baseball, zzzzzzzzzzzzz.
It's not the players demanding more $$. The players association offered a more than 25% pay cut across the board to the NHL and they STILL rejected it! Frack Bettman, he came from the NBA anyway and made that boring as hell. Why does the last 2 mins of a b-ball game take 45 mins?? Hockey players have the longest season of all and on average make the least of all major sports.
The reason for the problem is team like the NY rump Rangers and The philly Flyers. SUPER BIG payroll and no championchips. Worst of all is the Rangers, highest salary in the league and they don't make the freakin playoffs. Then cry poverty? MANAGEMENT sucks, then NHL takes their side, get lost Bettman.

Re: NHL Season Canceled

#1 sport - Football
#2 sport HOCKEY!!!!

All you pansy baseball/basketball/nascar fans can

Basketball -- "He touched me I want 2 freethrows"
Baseball -- "Waiting for the pitch....waiting.....waiting....waiting....waiting ....."
Nacar -- "Lets watch a bunch of cars drive in circles for hundreds of miles, gee thats fun"

I dont care that the NHL is cancelled cuz now the would be LA Kings are still Manchester Monarchs so the AHL will be all the more exciting and my team (#1 right now) has a good chance of finishing the season #1

Re: NHL Season Canceled

sux. Players are so stupid. If they don't give up more salary, some teams will fold, and that's that. There's just not enough $ to go aroud.

How many of us who work for a big corp threatens to strike b/c our employer holds all the $?

It's the fourth liners who are going to hurt the most. For example, I have friends who've made it in life, drive 911 turbos and own $400K condos, while I drive a GTI and rent a room; but when we eat out, we're both ordering the steak. The same guys who bought their million dollar homes has a teammate who had to mortgage theirs. That's going to suck.

I think team owners were pretty fair, especially when there are very few true hockey cities left.

Be fast or be last.

Huh? Baseball players play 162 games. The Yankees play many more though! That's an INSANE amount of games, considering they are 3/hrs+ per. Relatively speaking, I feel baseball players earn their money cuz it's facking cold when they start the season and hot as hell the rest of the season. Sissy football players only play 16 lousy games.

While baseball does play about twice the number of games as hockey, I would contend that a ice hockey game is waaaay more physically draining than baseball game.
