I can already see the playoff avatars now..."We Saved Hockey."

That's going to be rich.

I agree

I like that better than "We Saved Hockey". It takes the torts arrogant comment to another level.

How long until the mouth breathers say Crosby only helped save the season because he couldn't get insurance to play overseas?

Hahaha, I admit that it would be even better as playoff avatars. Let's keep that in mind!

Well there are already calling out the Pens for "breaking the rules" so it shouldn't be too long.

I hope they wait at least one more day before finalizing a deal so I won't have to admit that reporter from Boston might have known what he was talking about.

Guys, lets not get too far ahead of ourselves... I know that we want to feel optimistic right now but things could easily turn south.

I got my hopes up a couple times already in the past couple months. After that, I said screw it season's over, no more.

Apparently, I lied. It's hard not to get excited and optimistic. Get this **** done, FFS.

Also, good to be back here boys. Been on Leafs' board almost exclusively (Jays, Xbox thread) since the playoffs.

I agree. If there's one thing we have learned from this process, it's that anything can happen. Plus, no one from TSN has really said much on, McKenzie and Dreger, have really said much in terms of a possible outcome. I have guarded optimism at this point.

One person did suggest that over on the main board. I think it was in the thread before the current one.

On a side note, I hate TSN's relatively new video player on their page. For whatever reason, it rarely works on my computer at work. The old one worked fine, but now I can't watch any of the videos they post. This is the only news website I have a problem with. End rant.

There is no way we're not doing this. Greatest troll ever (because it's true).

In short, Burkle, Mario, Sid and Adams are saving hockey. The rest of the league's fans need to recognize.

We can't help it if our guys are better and more constructive / productive than their guys.
Jets fan here say hello to Ovi for us when you see him this season

our beat reporter confirmed that when the smoke clears Sid and Burkle are going to be seen as the Linden and Hodgkiss of this lock out! So to your bolded point above....duly noted

here's a little chant from our building to capture the spirit of the moment (thx Burkle and Sid)

Their hate for Crosby is bigger than their desire to get hockey back.
In contrast, Petr Prucha has the utmost respect for the rules and would never do such a thing. This is why he's a superior negotiator on top of having way more trade value.

All that's missing is the logo.

NHL back in the room to meet with the players following their examination of the NHLPA proposal....



They apparently took an hour to look over the proposal, so hopefully that's a good thing.

I love how Crosby looks like he's about to cry in that gif. I've never wanted anything in my life more than I want to tell people the Penguins saved the season.
