It had to be so empowering for him to only be the SECOND biggest pussy in the Consol Center for the first time.

When Bieber dropped his mic, Crosby knocked it away before he could pick it up then hid behind a roadie

This is surprising because I assumed all hockey players are music snobs with subscriptions to Pitchfork, and that normal locker room chatter consists of exchanging their favorite Nick Cave lyrics and showing off their tattoos of Velvet Underground album covers.

Canada gave us Nickleback. I expect all Canadians to like terrible music and Meryl Streep.

Awesome.

FTFC: "One is a Canadian kid whose early hits will make it tough for him to have similar success later in his career.

The other is Justin Bieber.

Possibly the greatest comment I have ever read.

Hockey players all have uniformly terrible tastes in music. Only guy I know whose favorite band isn't The Tragically Hip or something else Canadian/bland/boring/ugh is Brent Johnson, who has had several Led Zeppelin goalie masks.

Meryl Streep is a gift and treasure and must not be spoken of in the same post as Bieber, Crosby, and that generic crap factory known as Nickelback.
Oh god I just did it myself.

Ain't that the truth. I'm not sure I've ever seen or heard of a player that doesn't like the most godawful crap for music.

I love that Bettman apparently had the gall to tell this fan the the union hasn't been willing to negotiate on the day that the players made a pretty big concession.

To back that up, here's what Paul Bissonnette said today. He's calling it an "owners vs owners" problem.

Meanwihile the deluded fangirls on talk-sports.net are swearing the only reason Sid was there was at his "girlfriend's" request. Um, okay, yeah.

/gets the idea that Sid gives basically a shiat about nothing but hocky.

Fark Bettman. He's the worst thing to ever happen to the NHL. 3 lockouts under his reign = FAIL.

And I'm old enough to remember the shiat show that was John Ziegler.

/not buying tickets or NHL merchandise this season, even if they pull together a deal

Which is something I and many other Farkers have been saying the whole time. The hawkish owners biatch about profits but never discuss meaningful revenue sharing. They whine about contracts but line up around the block July 1 to throw double digit year, eight figure deals. They created this situation and refuse to even acknowledge it, let alone fix the problems. Of course that's not going to change any time soon as long as the BoG only needs eight owners to approve or shoot down any changes.

Another Pens fan giving props. That was pretty good.

Sidney Crosby scored the golden goal and won Canada the Olympic Men's Ice Hockey Gold Medal. He is a god amongst men. He even makes self-deprecating SportChek commercials. Your argument is invalid times infinity.

Also, I am not being sarcastic. This is serious business.

I don't know about anyone else, but I've got my fingers crossed for another canceled season.

I've had my testicles crossed for that very same future since July! I can't wait until the bleak days of early February where the only thing on TV is crappy mid-season NBA, NASCAR Speed Week highlights, and MLB Spring Training rumors. Oh boy oh boy oh boy I can't wait!

I've got AHL and my PS3 when I need a distraction. I hope they kill this season and once again ruin all the goodwill they built in the southern markets. Bettman wantedneeded those teams to win and he's had two Cali teams, a Florida team and Carolina take home the Cup in the last nine seasons capped with three Original Six team wins and a Penguins ring. He would have killed for that fifteen years ago. It's a farking joke and the NHL needs a good kick in the ass.
 
2012-11-21 10:15:55 PM
I don't see the big issue here. This Bieber fellow is quite catchy, you can really dance to it.

Roman Hamrlik seems to understand which side his bread is buttered on and has called out Fehr to get a deal done. He's 100% correct that Fehr ain't gonna be replacing the players' lost millions - only a deal with owners can start the money flowing again.

Good on him.

I think we're going to start seeing more of that on both sides. Players are going to get frustrated with Fehr and owners are going to get pissed off at each other because some would likely be willing to take something along the lines of what the union proposed on Wednesday, but those who are really controlling Bettman (the negotiating committee) won't budge.

Ultimately, both sides know that carrying this on much longer will be suicide for the league (if it hasn't happened already) and everyone will end up losing because of it. So I expect pressure to increase on both sides to get something done. I can totally see things ending up much like last year's NBA lockout did and they start around Christmas with a 48-60 game season. But am I confident of that? No farking way.

his actual explanation was that he has a luxury suite at the Consol Center that he uses for charity and "a lot of free time these days"

btw Claude Giroux went to a Nickelback concert on purpose and unironically enjoyed himself

Direct your anger towards Jeremy Jacobs. He's the director of the Board of Governors and Bettman is his little biatch.
