Imagine...

"There were no NHL..." (with apologies to the Beatles.)

The NHL owners would have their capital in other, probably more lucrative ventures. Most of the players would be in the UHL or working in the Ford plant.

When you think of it this way, the players really are being stupid.

Imagine a bitter Eagles fan that will never see his team win a Super Bowl.

I actually started two threads regarding Eklund. I have not brought him up since.

Imagine there's a season.
It's easy if you try.
No Goodenow or Bettman,
Just fans waving signs.
Imagine all the players,
Playing games today...

Imagine.......The Oilers AGAIN beating the Bruins for another Stanley Cup.
Those darn Bruins cutting payroll, and never keeping up.

Imagine.......Those B's Choking again in the postseason.
Ribiero beating Raycroft again, this time with a 25th reason.

Imagine.......Boston College actually winning a tourney game.
Despite being the champ in a confrence that is so damn lame.

Imagine.......Admitting bellichick is better then Lombardi and the Pack?
Hell i'd rather get kicked in the sack.

Imagine.......The Red Sox winning another World Series.
Oh wait, I also think the yankees are a bunch of pansies.

Imagine........Celebrating a hockey season all of us together.
Hopefully Coach Sullivan can toughen up Thornton, that feather.

I apologize Boston for being such an ass.
Hopefully we can enjoy a beer, all of us in mass.

And you use the word "thought" very loosely.

But it could be worse. On the NHL board, "PapaBear" has run out of players for his overly simplistic and ceaseless side-by-side comparisons. He's now resorting to threads like:

Ranger Towelboy vs. Edmonton Towelboy?

I think the reason we all keep coming back now is because our parents/spouses aren't paying enough attention to us.
