Re: NHLOL Offseason

That's not true. Bettman's decisions hold unless 75% of the owners vote against him (and, since one of the teams is owned by the league, they're obviously not voting against him). Throughout this process, there was a rumor that Bettman had the support of about 7 teams, which was enough to keep this whole thing going.

Dear Gil T. Azell, then stop giving money to the NHL and start giving money to the Pentagon (you might as well literally do so as a gift to make sure it arrives directly). People who make money earn more money for the people who pay them. It's economics, not feel good policies.

I give money the Pentagon every time I shop in the US, through the taxes I have to pay, .
But taking one step further maybe people should stop paying for NFL/NBA/MLB, etc and some of their High prices too. and over paid players.

Re: NHLOL Offseason

Not every player in the NHL is overpaid. The lockout hurts the fourth-line pine riders/healthy scratch guys who don't command nearly as much attention as the Crosbys and Ovechkins of the world more than it does the multi-millionaires. Do you think some energy line goon can find a big European contract when the NHL isn't paying his bills?

I never got the whole "the players are overpaid!" nonsense anyway. If you're generating millions of dollars in revenue for your team (and, by extension, the city/region in which you play), why shouldn't you be paid millions of dollars in return?

If that's all you're willing to contribute to the salaries of soldiers, no wonder...

Definitely. Let's not forget that the games not being played hurts the arena staff, many of which don't make anywhere near the millions the players do, and the businesses around the arenas that benefit from increased traffic during hockey season. After all, not every arena in the NHL has a team in the NBA to call it home when the hockey team isn't playing.

Re: NHLOL Offseason

So Brian Burke got fired. Did not see that coming, thought he'd get at least the shortened season under his belt before management made any decisions like that.

^ Yeah I just read about it on Twitter... I also did not see that coming.
I do find the whole "Nonis replacing Burke" thing funny. I hope Gillis isn't next in a few years.

Re: NHLOL Offseason

It's always fun listening to my fellow Leaf fans crucify Burke after he was the anointed savior when he came here. He still gets put through the ringer for the Kessel trade, which he shouldn't have made, but even I know that draft picks are a crap shoot (anyone remember Alexandre Daigle? Patrik Stefan?) Sure you can have a Seguin, but you can also get stuck with a dud.

But he had to make a winner and he failed, so onto Dave Nonis we go.

Re: NHLOL Offseason

Latest Toronto rumors have Luongo coming to town for:

1) Kadri, Bozak (Sure, we'd lose more at center, but I could live with it)
2) Kadri, Gardiner (Please, ANYONE but Gardiner!)

Why can't Mike Gillis have a brain cramp and take Mike Komisarek straight up?
