I decipher this "corporate speak" all day long...so this one was easy for me to interpret.

Goal = A FUTURE accomplishment

*So they are in fact saying, they want to best the best venue in hockey and have their team win the Stanley Cup....at some future point. I would put this in the "Long Term" goal category.
ENJOY THE RIDE

I reckon "One Goal" isn't the Blackhawks slogan for their goaltending.

The story behind those ‘Stanley Cup champion Nashville Predators hockey team’ signs inside arena

Actually, it's a mission statement. One fans weren't really supposed to see.

I was gonna make fun of them, more specifically that they thought that they'd ever be the #1 hockey venue, but since it's a mission statement it actually makes sense.

So we let this one slide for Nashville. But nothing can ever explain that giant sign depicting a pig-nosed Toews with the Cup.

The World would be a much better place if we could just get rid of all Mission Statements. There is too much of this doublespeak...

Damn, I haven't had surgery yet, so I can't blame this on post-surgery drug withdrawal from the meds...but am I seeing things, or have I been living in an alternate universe???

Yes, it is...

Though technically theirs is "One Goal" and not "OneGoal".


They were throwing catfish on the ice, which of course is a ripoff of our tradition with the Octopus !

Actually, the statement about the arena has been going on for about 6 months... So no Mission Statement with that. They really believe they are a Cup Caliber Team... Without sounding like a hater, if they DO NOT resign Weber, you will have people dumping what season tickets they do sell left and right. This offseason for them is the most important in their history.

Who cares? They can call themselves whatever they like, it doesn't bother me any.

"Mission statements" aren't normally written in the present tense... That's more like a "mission accomplished statement".

An interesting story, but I think I would have put "Mission Statement" or "Goals" as a header above the sign.

What if the end up winning the cup?

I mean, it's what we all said about the Toews billboard.
