Bravo!!!!

Could look at it in the perspective that keeping your seats shows Vinik that there is support and will push him to keep payroll up. Every bit helps.

I will probably still get my 10 packs if I can. I try to do that. If not I still buy single games as I can make it out. Its more expensive but it works out better for me.

I'm planning on being a STH next season. I'll consider it making up for the last 5 years that I was living in Chicago.

He sounds good now, but I'd prefer to see it first before I trust any of these guys again....since I can't refer to the other local team can I say "Oh god, I hope he's another another Harold Ballard!" At least he can never be an Art Williams!
Oh I was just comparing the bucs situation to it, not really taking shots at anyone or anything.

At the same time, i'm a diehard. These aren't our darkest years, they aren't even ****ing close, so in diehard fashion, i'll be there brother.

I never knew Lawton dropped 10 million into the OK deal. Wouldn't that raise some sort of conflict of interest for Vinik? I mean sever your ties as much as possible, and start fresh. I hope Lawton isn't here next season...I mean I don't think he's been bad as a GM but if we're gonna get the OK **** behind us, I say it's all gotta go.

I've only seen that reported by Larry Brooks but if it's true its another strike against bringing back Lawton next season.

Vinik also removed the $30 monthly fee on employees to park on team-owned land, and had the media/staff cafeteria completely refurbished. Employees responded by signing a thank-you card for Vinik.

He's advocating for Feaster to come back as GM Said that the only bad move he ever made was Modin for Denis. Seems to be insistent that Purcell is and will be a bust. And apparently drafting and development is irrelevant. And called Lawton an *******. I might agree with that bit, but I didn't know you could say it on the radio.

Have to give him the benefit of the doubt, he might not know what hes actually saying as hes probably drunk.

Probably a lot of sore feelings surrounding Len Barrie here, this should brighten your day a little.

I hate to sound bitter but with the Stamkos trade stuff coming out I can't help but laugh...

MORE TROUBLE FOR BARRIE: According to the Vancouver Sun, Barrie has been removed as CEO of Bear Mountain Master Partnership, which developed Bear Mountain Resort in Victoria, British Columbia.

The story, based on court documents, said Bear Mountain is in default on some of its loans and owes lenders more than $300 million.
