Yeah. I read the story. I started to get really pissed off. I was even reading it in parts while I was taking calls at work and getting more and more pissed off each time I read. Then I was going to do a comment about how stupid the idea was. At that point it finally dawned on me that I was being duped.

Right on Matt!!! I took that one hook, line, and sinker.

Whoever fell for this is a moron, especially if you went to any legit hockey website prior to these forums.

I forgot anything about April Fool's Day, but this was definitely a red light crock of s*** when I saw it....

Better buy me that Lidstrom jersey before next season because that looks BAAAAAD.

I think ultimately this is a big mistake...

The biggest April Fools day prank of all...

would be if this were legit. Largest prank pulled by the league yet.
I make 1 or 2 posts a week tops. Sometimes they're gold, sometimes they're crap, but the end weight is the same.

So I got really pissed, sent a pissed off e-mail to all my friends about it, then figured I'd jump into the thread to listen to other pissed off people. Whoops.

Having to write the retraction e-mail was embarrassing as hell but still felt kinda good knowing it wasn't true after all.

Yep, got me too, way to go Matt.
The sad thing is, I don't think anyone would be totally shocked if the league actually allowed this to happen.
