If there is a lockout maybe some folks will create a startup hockey league like Al Bundy did when baseball went on strike.

I am going to drink 3 beers in honor of Daneyko for this.

We had this idea a few pages ago. We are going to call it Xtreme Hockey League and it will be run by the WWE. This cannot fail!

who said there would be basketball. they're due to go a year earlier. maybe if the NHL finds a way to violate the CBA, the PA can call a strike in a tit for tat move and then EVERYONE will have a work stoppage at once.

20 days, 19 hours and eight minutes, apparently.

(Thread merging prevented a "PAGE 300! WOOOOO!" moment. I figured this was as close as I would get.)

At this rate, 444 will be up soon. Maybe even get to 3030, though that's not a retired number yet.

Correct and I think this is a bad example that some people are using here of Bettman's ineptness. A better example is what is going on in Phoenix.

After the Hossa deal the NHL should of just said "Alright that was the last loophole contract". Instead now they started a unnecessarily fight. Smart thing to do, let Kovy deal through then say no more instead of say no when one of these contracts comes up. :argh:

smart thing to do would have been to structure the Kovalchuk deal 100% the same way as the Hossa deal. just with more money involved, but the salary scale and years exactly the same, maybe add a year or two but balance it out fairly.

both sides were dumb. it would be hilarious if they lost Kovalchuk because of poor contract structure after the dog and pony show. it would obliterate what would have been otherwise a good offseason, if they had not signed Kovalchuk at all.

Hard to do that when the CBA allows it and you just set more precedents until they finally say stop. IMO, after last season with Pronger and Hossa, they should have just let it go until the next round of CBA negotiations.

However, as it has been said on this board that would have weakened their position for the next negotiation. It's entirely possible that if this does go to the arbitrator and if the NHLPA wins then it would make for some fierce negotiations in 2012.
