  1. I look at this picture of Pat raising the cup in 2003 and I see a warrior who fought the good fight until the very end and never gave an inch. But most of all I see a man who touched so many lives and had such an effect on all who knew him. Damn it, Pat. I'm literally at a loss for words. I knew this was coming, but it's so hard to accept now that it's finally here. I will see you in my mind's eye with that "Go to hell" snarl on your face and that s**t eating sparkle in your eyes for the rest of my life. Go with God, Burnsie. And may the Great Good Lord hold you in the palm of his hand forever. ::smiling at the memories with tears in my eyes and gently taping my stick on the ice in tribute to a life well-lived::
  2. I don't much care what anyone else says at this point in time. I have major issues with blackmail and that's exactly what the NHL is doing to the NHLPA. The union is ineffective, about as useful as tits on a boar hog, and couldn't negotiate their way out of cage match with two freaking hamsters. Bettman and Co. have them by the balls with their right hand, a butcher knife in their left hand, and a demonic grin on their collective faces as they say to the NHLPA, "We have a deal, don't we? Or do you want to be castrated?" I'll say more about this later, but I will say right now, I wonder how the players feel about their UNION right about now? Wonder if they'd like to decertify the dang thing and start all over again because the NHL has officially broken this one's back.
  3. Try scorched earth or nuclear winter, whichever you prefer.
  4. Indeed, thankee kindly. I can understand people attempting to bugger off Hossa's contract saying it's vastly different, but the reality is that the NHL completely blew it by not challenging it when it was submitted. In my world, cap circumvention is cap circumvention. I don't care what you try to dress it up as.....IT'S CAP CIRCUMVENTION. Give me a freaking break with this crap that the contract and those like it that have been shrugged, nodded, and winked at are now "under investigation." The NHL isn't going to do crap wrt those contracts after the fact. Let's say that Osama and the Mullah Omar have painted themselves into a bloody corner. Morons.
  5. One more thing, I'd like to ask Bettman this, if I had the opportunity to if this one is rejected too: "So Osama, how's it going to feel knowing that during your tenure as zoo keeper for the NHL you've had two lookouts and are now looking at yet ANOTHER lockout or a strike? Think the sport will survive that you piece of horse manure? Good day to you and your lackey the Mullah Omar."
  6. LMAO!!! I can't spell for shart. Idiot fingers meet keyboard. KAABLAAM goes the computer!!!!!
  7. If this one isn't allowed, if I was Kovalchuk, which I'm not, I'd tell the NHL to bugger it and leave for the KHL. Let the men in black suits explain THAT feux pas.
  8. Good Lord, this is the funniest post I've ever read on this site. ROFLMDAO!!!!! This isn't the post of the day or even the year.....this is the post of the decade. ROFLMDAOEL!!!!!
  9. I'd say with the arbi's decision on Kovy and the statement he made, there's now an age limit in the NHL. Guys Pando's age are going to find it harder and harder to go to 40-42 years old. What is he now? 35? I think he's looking at retirement whether he wants to retire or not.

  11. "dchesnokov So, Brian Burke testified against Kovalchuk? Interesting. Who testified in favor? 9 minutes ago via Twitter for BlackBerry®" Read this out on the internet. Thought you guys might be interested if you don't already know about it. noclue:
  12. I think he's saying that when Eric Segal wrote "Love Story", he was basing it on Osama's (Bettman) and the Mullah Omar's (Campbell) relationship. Letter writing isn't going to do any good. I'll just call up Jack Bauer and sick him on the entire unholy mess in the NHL front office.
  13. I'm too hard-arsed and old school for my own good sometimes. I don't have much sympathy for the Flys and am quite enjoying their group angst right now due to the investigation of Pronger's contract. And I understand you very well, PK. You've always been one of my favorite posters on this board.
  14. Definitely. It's funny for the other fans, but when it happens to them, they can't understand why it's happening. I don't give a rat's hind leg that Pronger's contract is a 35+ contract. Circumvention is circumvention any way you slice, dice, or quarter it.
  15. I found something really amusing this afternoon. I was lurking on the Flyguys' board and saw a thread about Pronger's contract being investigated. That thread was blazing like a bonfire and they're pissed to the inth degree.
