Their lack of change and gutless playoff performance accompanying my heavy MLB, NBA, and NFL interest has left me feeling like it is just a long off-season.

Has nothing to do with the team itself. I'd love the 06 Hawks at this moment, so long as they were playing. I'm a cubs fan, and as they say, hope springs eternal.

Yeah, I agree. Came out the wrong way. I spent too many years (a few less than most of you) listening to the radio, going to games with 6,000 people there, and watching the team grow to ever quit on them. I'll be ready when they're back with the same die hard mindset.

The goose that keeps on giving. Pretty soon Kane can make a complete photo album of his most embarrassing pics. Another one to add to the collection.

People harp on and on about the party pictures, but no one will ever be able to convince me that the Team USA picture with the icicle is anything but Kane's worst one ever

It's funny being a Hawks (i.e. US team) fan in Toronto - and just reading the press and listening to things. You get individual journalists picking away at things critically - but there's that pervading "Bettman hates Canadians" mentality. The mood is definitely one of disgust - that the players and owners are all acting stupid. But there's also that mentality of people who still think that the root of NHL evil is teams in the southern us.

Speaking very stereotypically, Cdn. fans don't really "get" the idea that you should have a team in a city that doesn't live and die for the hockey team. Obviously, i'm being a bit extreme - but the answer up here to everything is "just move another team to Canada, people will watch it"

Toronto has that surreal aspect to it during the lockout, b/c it's the Leafs who cause a lot of the revenue problems that blow the cap sky high but are pissed off they can't watch the team right now - "Losers Since '67" ... and a massive fan base who will shell out hundreds for the most expensive tickets imaginable just to have the opportunity to rage on sports radio about how the team lost yet again

Bolland is all class.

Dude is understandably frustrated. If you guys actually think Davey wants Buttman in his grave, you're wrong.

I'm sure has a real good handle on what's going on with negotiations based on his inability to articulate what's going on in the NHL that doesn't directly impact him.

Bolland needs to stay away from interviews and social media for his own sake. It's so painful reading these foolish comments from the players.

Now to go off on a bit of a tangent; Where the hell are the agents (other than Walsh, we know where he is)? They should be reigning these guys in to act professionally so they're more marketable for potential sponsors. Compared to major sports in the states, the individual NHL players do almost nothing to grow the league brand and overall league revenue because they don't have big corporate money pushing "player-brands" with an NHL logo attached to them. The players have to start pulling more weight to increase overall league revenue (would have helped the last few months), and the agents should be a big part of a push in that direction.

Too many divergent interests on the players' side, otherwise, they might be able to stop these mindless tweets, blogs, rants, retweets, etc.

Class isn't retweeting someone saying you want someone dead. So what he's frustrated, I think fans are much for frustrated then any player because the fans have nothing to gain by any of this and everything to lose. Last time I checked Bolland is still receiving an NHL paycheck for not working. But he is upset, why because he is on a paid vacation. Bolland made an idiot move and proved like lots of other players have that beneath their great public persona they put out. They're are some of the most selfish moronic people on the planet and the one smart thing any of them can do is SHUT-UP!

It was a stupid thing to say, but a disgusting display of hate is taking it a bit extreme.

Unless I'm missing something, he didn't say anything. He just re-tweeted a bad thing from somebody else and has already apologized for the re-tweet. This is much ado about nothing.

The brutal thing though is reading that he claims the RT was by accident, and he meant to re-tweet something else from a fan. Just say you're frustrated and did something stupid because of it.

Ted Lindsay, the man who founded the NHLPA and the man who the NHLPA named their award after has made the single best comments during the lockout about and to the players.

http://espn.go.com/nhl/story/_/id/86...layers-lockout

He continues to prove why he is a HOF and a legend of the sport.

BRAVO! BRAVO! BRAVO!
