What was his comments last time?

Oh man, you would hate to see me at a hockey game. I spent 3 solid minutes during warm up during a Colorado/Edmonton game with my head down by the little camera hole telling Darcy Tucker that he was one of the worst hockey players to ever lace up skates.

Part of being a professional athlete is to realize you are going to take heat from A LOT of people. Guys like Whitney soak up the praise, but start talking back when they get heat, when they should just smile and shake their heads.

Njoy said it right, guys that can't even take heat from their hometown fans without retaliating just show that he has no loyalty to this city, and to be honest, the sooner he's gone the better.

Here's just a taste.

"We're not doing this for us, we're doing it for the younger guys. The guys who are the future of our game."

He was a typical union mouthpiece back in 04/05.

The guy has 100,000 followers on twitter. Why is it even worth his time to respond to me? That's why I'm surprised. Heck, if he came back with a better response or called me something worse than an idiot I would be all for it. Its twitter, and half the **** people tweet are jokes.

Players get beaked all game long, but he responds to a nobody on twitter and I'm a terrible person....I don't know how I will live with myself now.

I'm sure they're reading Ryan's twitter feed. Quite frankly, if that makes Whitney not want to be here it isn't a big loss. Dude is pretty much done as an effective player.

Was anyone listening to John Shannon??? On Tencer? He basically said that if its not resolved by Thursday he feels the season is over and also thinks that there is a huge chance that it would go longer than one year. One way or another, **** or get off the pot, if its done.... End it. I am so tired of these Premadonnas!

Oh because we have the worse fans in the league right? Are you seriously worried about hurting these poor souls feelings? What did he say that wasn't true? They have no respect for their fans, why should we respect them. And yes, I would say worse to their faces.

Shannon's been one of the few optimistic voices during this mess so that doesn't bode well.

So the PA requests a meeting and shows up with nothing. Can't see how anybody could be backing these losers.

Making fun of someone's injuries is pretty low.

I'm pretty sure what I said was he worse thing that has ever been said to a pro athlete on twitter.

Definitely not something like death threats, mocking dead family members, racist comments, wishing injuries or something of vulgarity.

Yup. I agree, pretty low. I'll put myself in a time-out.

Does Shannon actually know any more about the lockout than you or I?

I feel like most analysts are talking out of their [butts] at this point.

i kind of understand chirping players at games... its part of the atmosphere and i think a lot of the players think its more funny than anything else... its another thing to make light of somebody's injury out of the blue on twitter, especially when you claim to be a fan of the team... i don't chirp players at games, but i at least understand it somewhat... the twitter thing is just a chicken-***** move though

You didn't say anything that was way out of line but it was pretty immature and unnecessary. Did you tweet that to Whitney to get a rise out of him? What was the point?

I don't know, i guess i grew up learning to respect people. This stupid twitter crap just brings out the worst of people IMO.

Decertification is finally being abandied about as a nuclear option for the players.

I always wondered if this card was on the table for the NHLP

Didn't work for the NFLPA or the NBPA. What makes the players think it will work for them?

Whitney gets it pretty bad from Anaheim fans and Pittsburgh fans, but Oilers fans are usually pretty good to him.
