(TSN)   So I know this guy who knows the pharmacist to a well known NHL goalie and he told the pharmacist that the team sent out a practice schedule beginning in two weeks. Now we can haz hockey?   (tsn.ca) divider line 38

Unlikely is right. More like "beginning in FIFTY-two weeks."

Screw Don Fehr
Screw Gary Bettman
Screw the PA
Screw the Owners

Hope they all get a lump of coal or a couple dog turds in their Christmas stockings.

My best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with the girl who saw the teams pass out practice schedules at 31 Flavors last night. I guess it's pretty serious.

The NHL is done, the owners can't keep locking the players out for signing contracts that the owners offered.
 
2012-11-12 01:29:02 PM
This is so frustrating. Even God tried to wipe out the NHL's offices with a hurricane, and it didn't work. Bettman's never going to give us a season.

Remember how there was a story that during the last lockout, Bain Capital tried to buy the entire NHL? I wonder if someone with $5-6 billion lying around is looking at doing that now. That might be the only way to save the league.

No, it really isn't. First off, there'd be a huge delay between the purchase and playing. There'd be challenges to one entity owning an entire league and all of its teams, as well as the status of existing contracts. Then you'd still be left with these same negotiations. Assuming that the purchase was allowed to go through, and that current contracts were honored and a new CBA was swiftly agreed upon by the players, you'd still be left with a league where every team is virtually the same, at least until such time as the new owner can turn around and start selling teams for a profit. Or at least to dampen the losses.

Subby, do I need to point out that we've ALWAYS had hockey? Just not NHL. I've seen many hockey games this year and I've attended many hockey games (professional) this year.

It's called the AHL. This is only one instance of a professional, Non-NHL league. There exist many both in the U.S. and Canada and overseas.

There is a HUGE difference. Maybe you're a newbie to the sport.

Care to play a little "what if"?

Your opinions...what if Gary Bettman woke up tomorrow to find nobody cared about the NHL anymore? Individually and corporate.

So we're talking all corporate owners of the "boxes" get their season tickets refunded and cease to re-purchase, individual season ticket holders get their refunds and don't renew, NHL merchandise sales cease, opening night sales (next season) are literally nill, etc. All overnight as if we'd passed through a comet that erased any care about the NHL in everyone.

Love to hear your responses.

i keep hoping that owners of the profitable teams will vote to start their own league without the weak sisters currently flailing around in non-hockey markets.

but then i realize that those same profitable teams are making money hand over fist under the current CBA, and the new CBA doesn't seem like it's going to have meaningful revenue sharing either, so basically they have no reason to kick the useless teams out.

still, i can't help but think that Toronto and Detroit hate having games shut down so that Phoenix and Florida can negotiate terms under which they will still be unprofitable.

tl;dr - fark you Bettman for your lack of vision for a strong 30/32 team league.

SO MUCH THIS!
I watch MORE hockey during lockout years. KHL and Canadian Major Junior (WHL, OHL, QMJHL) games are great too, and many of them are streamed online. There's plenty of hockey. It's your own fault if you aren't watching it.

I'd laugh hysterically if that happened, but it won't. Yes, it would lead to the loss of my team (as if this lockout won't). But considering that we've been owned by the league for the last 3 years and at the highest moment we've ever had, they fark us like this... fark them too.

An interersting question is, do the owners of those unprofitable teams even give a crap?

The Canes and the Checkers are the same drive for me. And a lot of the Checkers have played for the Canes at some point.

So....FARK you Buttman, I still get my hockey

Hockey can only be saved by moving the season to spring and summer. As long as it needs to compete with the NFL/NBA/NCAA Football/Basketball it is not going to generate the excitement/TV revenues necessary to sustain itself. Start the season in March and play though August. I'm not a hockey fan, but would gladly watch some hockey rather than baseball

I can't tell if you're funny, trolling, or stupid. How do you feel about moving winter league baseball to Finland so it doesn't have to compete with soccer?

I'm a (very) casual NHL fan, and that's actually not a bad idea. I'd watch a lot more hockey if it was on in the summer, and probably get into it more. It would also get more coverage on ESPN, etc, just because it wouldn't have to compete with stories on what Teebus ate for breakfast. I realize that's heresy to hardcore fans, but you guys will watch it anyway, it would be an opportunity to expand the fanbase.

/won't happen, but an interesting idea, nonetheless

I'm finding that junior hockey is more exciting in the same way NCAA football compares to the NFL, IMHO. Scouting players I think will be big names in the future has been fun. I'm looking forward to both Breakfast Cereal Appreciation night and Star Wars night at upcoming K-Wings games (ECHL, but they have a junior team too).

Looking at the rosters of AHL teams, it looks like a few decent NHLers are playing. I'd absolutely drive to Hershey to see Holtby play.

Used to live in Grand Rapids, MI. Loved seeing the (then) Kalamazoo Wings, Muskegon Lumberjacks...hell I even went to the (dating myself here) old time Grand Rapids Owls in that awesome barn they called...called...uh...dang. Course now they have the Griffs which is very entertaining and the VanAndel arena is an excellent venue. Western MI, great hockey area. Of course the CCHA there too (I used to work for the CCHA).

I'm moving to Grand Rapids to be with my fiance and her kids, once the paperwork finally gets approved. what a long, frustrating wait that is (csb).

I think I am going to adopt the lumberjacks as my junior team. I'm curious as to what ccha team is in the area? I've never been to an NCAA game, and really want to go.

Also, I had a bit of a chuckle at your comment it was a great hockey area. it's great in comparison to the rest of the usa, maybe, but my impression was that was it was pretty ignored compared to here in Canada.


I'm not trolling, just my observation, and I could very well be wrong, I haven't been there enough to be an expert in the area.

I do love Grand Rapids though, from what I've seen of it, it's a neat little city

Welcome soon to MI, fingers crossed! Make sure to head west to the beaches sometime, it's so beautiful out here. The Griffins should be a great team to follow too.
