Guess I just don't get how anyone could support the owners or Buttman on this.

Bill Simmons is a completely worthless member of the Sports media.

Oh man! A vote to decide if they should hold another vote to decide if they file a "Disclaimer of Interest" to disband the union so millionaires can start suing each other. I'm wetting my pants with excitement...

Game 1 against the Penguins is on right on the NHL Network. Game 2 next.

Seeing Kunitz crosscheck to Varlamovs head again pissed me off.

Yep and they did nothing in response. They abused varlamov all series and we did nothing. If it wasn't for ov and varlamov it would be a sweep. Game 7 was the most disappointing game I ever watched.

LeBrun always had a to optimistic take on the lock out so at least he came clean on that.

We'll never know what would have happened with Kelly rather than the 'shot across the bow' with the ultimate hiring of Fehr. Naturally hindsight is you know what but wonder if it would been a little more tactical of the NHL in their first offer to go 50/50 out of the gate. But with Fehr's refusal to start negotiating early this year made it pretty obvious where we are at now.

Now we know what they were after anyways and conversely what the NHLPA would be most against which is where are now at this standoff.

In the end the only truly negotiation left at this point is the season cancelate date which is mid January so we just have to endure the legal kabuki dance stuff until the week before that mid-January date.

Come on now everyone should be stoked at not only the virtual statistical awesomeness of the virtual season plus being #1 in the east.

Nabokov with 9 shutouts in 28 games? Sounds legit.

Caps 1st in the East with players leading the goals, assists, and points races? Penguins, Bruins, and Rangers out of the playoffs? Apparently I need to start following virtual hockey.

Last spring, Terry got into her spring-cleaning mode, and one weekend, I found myself bringing in boxes we'd stored in the garage, going through them, and getting rid of much of the boxes contents.

I opened one box, and there sat a treasure I knew I had, but had been unable to find: the vhs tapes of the 1998 SCF's between the Wings and Caps. And not just any tapes: the Hockey Night in Canada coverage. I had lived in Ann Arbor then, and taped them directly from an outdoor antennae.

So, I grabbed one, popped it into the one vcr still hooked up, and watched Game 2. After the 2nd period came a long running feature: "Satellite Hot Stove." These days, it's called "The Hotstove", but it's essentially the same format, and has most of the same people, including MacLean, Milbury, and until 2011, LeBrun.

As I listened to their predictions of what would happen to various issues around the NHL at that time, it was tempered with the fact that this tape was made in 1998, and I knew how the events they were predicting had turned out.

And guess what: they were wrong on EVERY prediction. Of the 5-6 issues they discussed, they were wrong on every count.

I called Terry down, and played it for her, and we had a good laugh.

Something to consider about "expert" predictions.

Pro owner as ever here.

The players are losing their credibility on a daily basis with their tactics.

As long as the union is crushed and pulverized I don't mind not seeing hockey for the next couple years.

The union being crushed (assuming that includes decertification) probably ends up working out better for many of the players regardless. Probably no salary cap, no RFA/entry-level restrictions, etc.
