If he hadn't finally brought a cup back to Boston we would've killed Jacobs by now. As it is that good karma's fading fast.

F every party involved.

F Bettman twice.

Can we just invade the NHL offices and beat Bettman up with Hockey Sticks?

After they've already lost the biggest draw of the season, perhaps including the finals. Pretty much the only thing left to lose now is the season itself, and even if they get one going, it's going to be one of those weird abbreviated deals fans always mentally discount.

For Bettman's next act, he will arrange to have the Stanley Cup put under glass in the Smithsonian if the NHL goes under.

That goodwill was gone the second he got on stage during the parade and opened his mouth.

Any fans still have hope that anything can be salvaged from this year?

Winter classic was the last straw. Anything now will be a joke and insulting to the fans.

Not even the NBA screwed up this bad.

Once the Classic gets axed, that's it. I lost hope and NHL will gasp it's last breath. FARK THE SUITS.

Jeremy Jacobs Wikipedia, Paragraph 1

"Jeremy Maurice Jacobs, Sr.[1] (born January 21, 1940)[2] the owner of the Boston Bruins, is also Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Delaware North Companies. Forbes magazine ranks him as #634 of the world's billionaires.[3] He was listed by Forbes magazine for his philanthropic endeavors.[4] He is perhaps best known for an embarrassing flatulence problem, which frequently disrupts those unlucky enough to be within close proximity. He and his wife Margaret reside in East Aurora, New York and in Wellington, Florida. They have six children, eighteen grandchildren, and one great-grandchild.[5]

LULZ.

Yep. Except I would say F Bettman 50 times. I'm still not sure why they are trying to keep teams afloat in markets that don't want them.

Seriously this. Why would I care about hockey when they get rid of one of the rare OTA games? I gotta find a stream for most games (if the league even wants to play)? fark that.

/hockey going the way of boxing - a dark, dark road

It would go to the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto.

I would love to see Bettman get fired. Preferably into deep space.

Well, at least he isn't the only person in Wellington with an embarrassing fart problem.

It'll still take 16 playoff wins to take the Cup. The Devils' 1995 Cup still counts just as much as any other Cup championship.

I'll still watch. I love NHL hockey too much, and I there are way more important things in my life for me to be holding onto a sustained outrage over a source of my entertainment.

Well, enjoy lockouts every time the CBA is up for negotiation. It's people like you that allow the NHL and NHLPA to pull this shiat. Until they see a decline in business, they have no reason not to do it.

Whatever. What I say is unpopular now that everyone is busy working out there rage, but within a year all the real hockey fans will be back, simply because NHL hockey is the best hockey, and the Stanley Cup playoffs are the most intense, compelling spectacle on the sporting calendar. A real hockey fan will not be able to avoid being sucked back in in any event. I'm just being honest about it now.

Yeah, the owners are greedy farkers (that's true in any sport, btw). Poorly conceived fan protests aren't going to change that. As for me, I don't care, I just want to watch some hockey.

Honesty is frowned upon in these here forums. Assigning blame is all that's important.

/BTW, people, say Bettman is fired. Do you think that the owners suddenly say "oh hey, phew, he was the only reason we were doing this whole lockout thing."? Are you that dumb?
