Bum **** Nebraska < Bum **** Illinois. Nebraska is too obvious. Unlike Kansas or Illinois you don't have any real cities unless you consider Lincoln / University of Nebraska a real city. Freakin corn huskers. Buncha no-good red shirt wearin', Larry the Cable guy watchin', Tom Osborne worshippin' LOONIES! The lot of ya! The NHL must not stain itself by going to Nebraska.
There's a real city in Kansas? The big part of KC is in Missouri.
Hey don't take it personally. I live in Illinois. If you prefer I can change it to "bum **** Illinois", because there are many places in this state that qualify.
It's just a saying that means "middle of nowhere / out of the spotlight / hiding in the corn".
I do not think less of Kansas folk because they live in Kansas. In fact, your BBQ is one of America's finest inventions and on my way to Utah next year I intend to boost your economy by stopping through and having some.
And hey, when it comes to the world's best internet... Kansas has it and no one else does (Google Fiber). So... I like Kansas. Hell I would even be happy to have the Panthers or Coyotes relocate to KC. I'm just willing to admit it's a state with plenty of "empty land" in the center of the country, with a small media presence. Face it; none of the media would expect to find the NHL and NHLPA in Kansas this weekend. It's the perfect hideout. I say they go for it if it means no media distractions / a better chance at a new CBA.

I was just teasing guys. There is definitely a lot to dislike about Kansas. Overall, it is not so bad, though.
Out of curiousity, I checked the size of cities in both Kansas and Nebraska. The largest city in NE has about 25k more people than the largest in Kansas. However, Kansas has 5 cities over 100,000 in population while Nebraska only has 2. Kansas gets bumped up to 6 for 10 months out of the year since the students being at KU puts them fairly close to 110,000.
Donald Fehr is a pathetic excuse for a human being.
“The most terrifying fact about the universe is not that it is hostile, but that it is indifferent. If we can come to terms with this indifference and accept the challenges of life within the boundaries of death, our existence as a species can have genuine meaning and fulfillment. However vast the darkness, we must supply our own light.” - Stanley Kubrick
What I get a kick out of is that they still want full paychecks despite playing a shortened season. Any average person who gets cut early or misses work (who is not on salary) misses pay for that day for a period of time or the whole day. I really don't see how anyone could stand with the players.
If true and the PA is moving goal posts at this time of year, I think we can safely say adios to the season and know what they were after this whole time.
PS Fehr is having a press conference soon, probably going to talk about how all the players are awesome and things are great on their side, baseball & 2005, blah blah blah. Needless to say, doesn't sound good.
The stuff from Russo and LeBrun are getting me prepared for the Pens' attempt to go 2 for 2 in the lockout draft. Come on down Seth Jones.
Awesome, another defenseman from the Winterhawks! I'm wondering in these trying fiscal times for NHL clubs if the Pens couldn't make their scouting HQ in Portland to save a few bucks We all know it's inevitable.
