Pathetic league.

of course...the leafs never get to any cool stuff like behind the scenes features and we get the winter classic and 24/7 the season it gets cancelled. Love it.

RonnieB13 10-25-2012 06:27 PM

haha what a joke the NHL is. Im over it.... Winter Classic is boring anyways but a huggge money maker. Excited for the NHL draft

who cares it's a gimick game in the middle of the season, which probably would be in the bottom 10 games of the year in terms of quality of play.

Suntouchable13 10-25-2012 06:31 PM

Cancelling it already? But we're not even into November yet. They probably don't think they will have the time to get it ready even if they reach an agreement sometime in November. Or they just don't think they will get an agreement before the new year anyway.

JMcLeaf 10-25-2012 06:35 PM

Seems pretty damn early to cancel it

Rare Jewel 10-25-2012 06:35 PM

lol


atta boy gary :handclap:

Leaf Rocket 10-25-2012 06:36 PM

I knew there wasn't going to be a season but ****.

JoeLH 10-25-2012 06:37 PM

They want to take that bargaining chip away from the players rather sooner than later.

Tommy Torini 10-25-2012 06:37 PM

We'll get it next season. We'll just have to wait another year is all.

blasted_Sabre 10-25-2012 06:38 PM

We'll get it next season. The NHL promised Ilitch, and with the involvement of the Leafs they'll print money like never before.

To tell you the truth its likely too late for 24/7 to happen even if they were able to squeeze in the winter classic. I'd rather just skip the whole kit and caboodle this year and get all of it next year.

Ari91 10-25-2012 06:40 PM

I'm sure they'll reschedule it whenever both sides decide that it's time to start playing hockey again.

Pretty much what I am hoping for right now.

I guess we can just get a good pick and roll with it for next season.

Bravid Nonahan 10-25-2012 06:47 PM

NHL players and owners can **** themselves

Hockey Potential 10-25-2012 06:47 PM

If we reschedule till next year, we might have a better roster then :)

Agreed. As angry as I was, let's follow what this poster has to say.

Just go with the flow, we'll prolly get a good prospect in Mackinnon ;) and have a good center to go with the flow :P

Cool Beans Man 10-25-2012 06:54 PM

I believe I heard 24/7 just needed 4 weeks before the winter classic to do 24/7. Only 4 episodes and it's done weekly. Season starts Dec. 1, and we'd still get it.

S2S 10-25-2012 06:54 PM

Is it true we would just have it the next season or will it be two new teams and the Hockey Gods ****ed us over again?

Steve 10-25-2012 06:56 PM

Nothing more than a "Look at my muscles" move.

Probably true. However the NHL believes the PA is using the Winter Classic as a pawn in the negotiations so they're just cancelling it to remove it from the equation.

Don't think that once they will re-open their doors that everything will be hunky dory for the whole league. This league is a huge joke.

Good. I've said since day one I'm not interested in being involved in gimmicks, especially ones that are usually of terrible quality. Leave it to the teams that need gimmicks.
