Palmer Eldritch: Please stop greenlighting these. I hate refreshing the Sports page, seeing a new link, getting excited... oh, it's more bs about what hockey players are doing during the lockout. And I'm not some hockey hater- I like hockey. But these links are like when someone at work just has to tell me about the cuh-razy weekend they just had, and I have to pretend to be interested until they're done telling me about their uninteresting hijinks.
The Bestest: Since it's all but establish that Cheap Throat is (sometimes entertaining) BS, let's shift to reality for a bit...It looks like the players agreed to a meeting on Tuesday.. 6 owners, 6ish players, no Bettman or Fehr (though each side will have a handful of lawyers present).Owners attending will be Burkle (Pens), Chipman (Jets), Edwards (Flames), Jacobs (Bruins), Tanenbaum (Leafs) and Vinik (Lightning).
sno man: With Jacobs there, sadly not much will get done whoever else is there... Molson from the Habs would have been an interesting choice but I guess his real business puts him in a bit of a conflict of interest with some of the other 'have' owners.

sno man: There was this charming quote too at the victory party for the cup last year:Fewer than 48 hours after the Boston Bruins won the Stanley Cup in 2011, we all received a reminder of the bad old days. Jeremy Jacobs stood on a stage outside the TD Garden and offered the backhandest complement most of us can remember. Speaking to current Bruins president Cam Neely, Jacobs turned and said the following:"I also want to recognize Cam Neely. I think I have communicated more than once that all along he is such a great role model for the players and the organization. He is the heart and soul of what a Bruin means. You couldn't have been a better leader."None of that is bad. Hell, one could even call it good. Fans were happy. Neely seemed pleased, and Jacobs almost even seemed sincere. Then, the the Mr. Jacobs we all know and love came out: "On top of it, he brought us a Stanley Cup, something he couldn't do while he was skating."from this article
S.A.S.Q.U.A.T.C.H.: This Cheap Throat dribble is garbage.Believe it or not, there's actually interesting stuff happening in hockey besides some desk jockey's exaggerations & tall tales.
Cucumber_Breath: These things are on the FarkTV level of bad. Stop greenlighting them.
boozehat: This is why I will never be able to bring myself to watch European hockey. I get siesures with these crazy skating advertisements.[assets.sbnation.com image 666x466]
