See I'd love to see Zach back in jersey but after we made him captain and he wanted a cup contender team( I believe we were pretty damn close) the fact that he's even thinking about leaving us kinda upsets me . Don't you think?
I dont think its fair to look at it like that. Its no secret we are having issues with our finances/ownership and this is probably the only time Zach will get a chance to see what he's worth on an open market. Its a smart business decision from his perspective to take a look at whats out there. What will upset me is if he leaves and the #s were so close and it looks like he was BSing, but I cannot have animosity at this point as its not fair to him. This is really a once in a lifetime decision he's going to make as its likely this contract will take him to the end of his career.
he didnt go to prove a point that he feels government is screwing people over, though hes a republican, he thinks its both sides. most people who pick a side mindlessly vote for that side thinking it will help them out. good for him to see it how it is, both sides screw us and take away sh!t day by day. the only stupid part of the whole thing is he assumes the president, demorcratic or republican , has any real control over anything. and in a way, it is a political event, sure its just hte president meeting with the champions, but every president does it and its just a press op to make them look good, distract people from real news etc.
It was a ridiculous stance to take. A team visiting the White House after winning a championship has nothing to do with politics. He disrespected his teammates and the city of Boston with that stunt. He could've just as easily done what James Harrison of the Steelers did and say "I didnt want to go", which Harrison did both times the Steelers have one (one with Bush, one with Obama) and barely anyone gave a sh!t. Instead he made something which has become tradition for champions of all sports a political talking point. He knew what would happen with his statement. It was a selfish, dickheaded move. No matter your politics, its an honor to be invited to the White House by the President. You don't have to respect the man or party, but respect the office.
Good for you. Getting to the Finals are no guarantee. This could be Marty's last chance. 2001 fvcking sucked. We make it this far, its a fail if we don't win the Cup, despite the great and unexpected run.
The second image isn't showing for me for some reason, but the first one isn't so much because of ignorant fans as it is because of the local news absolutely butchering all things Kings in fails of epic proportions.
