Ok. You run around the house & stop all the clocks, I'll go get Granny to light a candle, grab a wooden bowl and 3 handfuls of salt from the poke. Should be good to go for another 2 weeks... possibly the entire 2013/14 season.

Daly on Sportsnet: NHL is trying to identify owner that will keep Coyotes in Glendale. If find a buyer, need to go to new city government.
It sounds like a relocation is coming soon

What a charade. The NHL's trying to identify an owner... Like out of a lineup or
something?... Harvey Keitels always fun. Michael Madsen perhaps. Right out of control.

They're actually trying to find a English-to-French dictionary.

Keeping along the Prisoner tangent (sort of) ...

There's a man who leads a life of danger
To the Mayor and the League he stays a stranger
With every move he makes another chance he takes
Odds are he won't buy the team tomorrow

Secret owner man, secret owner man
They've given you a number and taken away your funds

Beware of Press Releases that you find
A Press Release can hide an evil mind
Ah, be careful what you say
Or you'll give subsidies away
Odds are he won't buy the team tomorrow

Secret owner man, secret owner man
They've given you a number and taken away your funds


Be seeing you ...

Craig Morgan ‏@cmorgancbsfoxaz

Pastor hasn't spoken to NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly yet. Travel for both made it impossible today. Should happen tomorrow [April 3].

We are all prisoners here, of our own device...

Killion started it as Number 6

'Rover' has been busy collecting 'potential' owners (see avatar and attachment).

P.S. If you want to see and hear it all, try this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QY9oWfkKt6A

Be seeing you!

Indeed. And the allegorical comparisons to hfBoards completely, utterly & hilariously rather accurate. The Mods' & Admins Rovers' (though I suspect kdb may actually be #48 - a very clever subversive running deep cover); Numbers 1 (Buffaloed) and Number 2 (Fugu) of course. Just on & on. Too much fun, couldnt resist...

Ya, then we get into that whole Rowan Atkinson sub genre, Blackadder. Gary no doubt
naming chapters of his revisionist biography after various episodes of that series as we speak...

Gary; Goes Forth
Gary; Clown Court
Gary; The Cavalier Years
Gary; The Whole Rotten Saga

Probably OT, but what the heck: Coyotes jettisoned 3 roster players today.
Sullivan, Lombardi and Torres.

Cutting payroll?
Less players affected in a potential relocation?
They don't want to make the playoffs?
What gives?

Don't want to turn this into "nonbusiness" -Lombardi is just done I think-he hasn't been same since concussion, Toronto got a pick for him I think this year when they traded him to Phoenix-probalby retires soon. Can't speak fo the others.

You mean as opposed to turning this Mega Thread into the Entertainment Board meets The Lounge meets the Politics & General Hockey Discussion pages? Too late... And ya, I think it somewhat pertinent to the business side in as much as it signals the Coyotes wont be entertaining re-signing these guys when they were all set to become UFA's, and of the trio, Lombardi & Sullivan (was acquired from NJ by the Leafs in an infamous trade in 97 that saw Doug Gilmour leaving town, 3 seasons later placed on Waivers & grabbed by Chicago, little guy by NHL standards, only 5'9") ineffective anyway, really only Torres a loss. Though with that guy I guess it depends on ones perspective. He was here in Vancouver before signing with Phoenix as a Free Agent, had been suspended for leaving his feet and launching into a players head with his elbow. Came back, pulled borderliner's of the same ilk during a playoff series, but was an extremely useful player. Scored a series winner. Lots of grit. Then last spring of course nasty hit on Hossa; Shanabanned!. If he controls himself in San Jose', and they could use a guy like that, good fit... basically all Phoenix got back was a minor leaguer out of Anaheim, so no serious hits financially.
