    I read some but post rarely. Here is my take on the lock out. We (fans, media, etc...) look at the facts or at least the "facts" as they are given to us. Much of which can't possibly be true because it is contradictory. For example: Prior to the last CBA the players were getting 73% of revenue. This means the NHL and teams survived on 27% and now they can't survive on 43% of a much larger pie? And won't be able to survive on 50% unless they also get x,y and z in addition to the extra cash. Expenses beyond salaries have increased that much since 2004?!!! Tell someone who will believe you. This is the point at which it gets dicey. The players feel (rightly or wrongly) that they got shafted in the last CBA and do not trust Bettman at all. When Bettman was asked about trust he was taken aback in that 30 minute media scrum after talks fell apart. He was asked about trust again later and basically said "I don't see what trust has to do with it". Therein lies the problem. Bettman is a liar. During the last CBA he said we needed this so ticket prices would be more affordable. They have doubled since then on average... I could go on and on but he is a documented liar. He may think the players are stupid but most people can recognize a lie. During the current lockout Bettman has stated several times that the NHL is losing about 20 million/day and the players 8-10 million? Say what Gary? Interesting percentages you have there... Gary also says the players need to give because so far only the league has moved... Really Gary? Going from 57% to 50% for the players is a move by the owners? Term limits on contracts is a move toward the players? Tell the truth Gary, the only place the owners have moved from is their ridiculous original offer of 43% for the players etc... Essentially a 14% pay cut in a business that is growing? People can hate the players for being greedy but this isn't even about money anymore. The players are tired of Bettman bullying them and they hired Fehr to stand up to him and that is what he is doing. Now we have two opposing forces, both of which taking lying and manipulating to places most can't imagine. I'll be surprised if there is hockey next season. All I can say is "Gary, you live by the sword, you die by the sword..." What has been will be again, there is nothing new under the sun.

    Wish list: Top 3 pick in the draft Insert Andre Savard as GM Insert Guy Carbonneau as coach Begin working toward the future at the trade deadline if possible but no brainless firesales Hope the new CBA allows us to shed the Gomez contract. Keep Subban What has been will be again, there is nothing new under the sun.
  • Comment on Multimedia: Habs’ Price, Diaz in all-star action (2012-01-29 20:01:33)
    He is protesting the insane laws being created by two successive governments, one republican, one democrat, both global elite controlled. He is doing that BECAUSE he loves his country. If the rest of America pulled their heads out of their nether regions long enough to be enraged they might be able to take back their country before it's too late. America used to be a land that honoured people who took a stand for something meaningful. Now we shoot our mouths off at them?!! People wake up! My respect for Tim Thomas increased by leaps and bounds last week and yours should have too! What has been will be again, there is nothing new under the sun.

    I have a suggestion for the League for naming the new conferences. See what you think: North and South Battle of the Bulge Men in the Middle Western Frontier Smile, it does you and others good!

    Markov will be fine. The fact we've done as well as we have without him is awesome. Have some of you forgotten we have very little experience on the blueline? Mosts teams would fold in our current situation. It's not fun with all the injuries and inexperience and facing potentially missing the playoffs but the future looks good indeed.
