Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?

another brick in the wall? right?
Sweet. This dude was brought here for one reason, to punch people in the head - every other thing that he can do, other Wings can do better. I like that we have a head-puncher. The league has other, better head-punchers, but this one is ours. Better than nothing. Good work, Kenny!

Just waiting now for the shoe to drop on training camp & then maybe the Winter Classic. Have to think that Mr. I is just fuming over all of this.

Pretty much confirms the likelihood of an upcoming lockout.

Great.

I view this as very bad news, and a bad sign. :glare:

Bummer. It looks like a lockout is coming. Especially with Bettman saying that the players and GMs are so far apart. And despite the players saying they would play without a new CBA, the owners have said that they definitely will lock the players out if there is not an agreement (translation: if the players don't cave to all the owners demands) by the 15th.

Starting to look inevitable, unfortunately...

Lockout? What lockout? The prospects tournament was cancelled because Holland sucks! We don't have any prospects left! He traded them all for old men! Blah blah blah! :lol:

so how about a 75/25 split? 75 = lockout, 25 = no lockout

Mentally I am already prepared for a lockout it has already been way too long without hockey.

I used this video once before (when Maj went completely nuts over the Tootoo signing lol) so i hate to use it again, but I feel like it perfectly describes how I feel right now.



Bettman is going to kill hockey :(((((( the only good I can take from this is maybe the league will go back to pre-lockout style hockey, but knowing uncle gary he'll only make it worse again :((((((

I seriously don't know what I'm going to do with myself this winter without hockey. I'm already losing it over here and it's only August :((((((

This is what i was thinking too...why cancel the prospect tourney? most of those guys go back to Jr after that and they know what kind of competition they're up against to make their team in the future and what kind of competition they're up against collectively on other teams. I for one think this is that show that should go on. Very surprised that Kenny threw in the towel on this one. He should have kept the tourney on and kept it "business as usual" if for no other reason than to give the players and fans hope. I feel worse than yesterday about a lockout happening. Guess i won't be getting Centre Ice this year. this sucks!

I think the prospect camp was cancelled mostly because of the other teams participating this year. It was not all Holland's decision, but the collective vote of 5 or six teams. From a planning perspective, many are traveling long distance by plane and have to consider the cost of travel, hotels, etc and booking all that, whereas Detroit just has to drive up north. It's a bummer, but it is understandable.
