Thanks for the link mookie... ;-D

I think this is really going to kill the sport...when you think about it, Hull, Stevie Y, Lemieux, Sacik, Shanahan...and others that carried the league, probably won't be back...thus leaving the league without a true superstar to carry it....I think the league is finished for good... :-/

Im glad it is over. Nothing worse than cutting on ESPN for some sports action and finding hockey. This has been a great year for Sports Center because it isnt clogged with the hockey clips.

So, Mook, we keep 5 right?!


We keep 5, but I don't think that Bettman or Goodenow are keepers at this point - neither of them will have jobs when the league starts up again.


Ugh? only 5? And I had far and away the best team in the whole league! Lets just keep our rosters the same and then if anyone retires you get a compensational pick.

I never figuired out why so many Americans hate hockey, its the most fast paced sport you got. You watch baseball where an at bat takes 10 minutes while hockey bores you?!

Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

Some Americans don't like hockey because Canadians are better at it, and they feel insecure about not being the best at something. I say some, not all, because obviously there are people that just like sports regardless of how good their country is. Then there are others that just follow along with those people who are insecure about sucking at hockey, but really don't feel the same way at all they do it just to fit in. Kinda like the brown shirts. So to make a long story short: Americans don't like hockey because they're nazi's :-b

I think that we just found our Canadian Lesgrant. That would be Lesgrant with a better taste and a higher alcohol content :-b
