owners of ranch = owners of NHL teams
cows = players
bettman = ?
field = ice
feed = paycheck
supermarket = fans

But wait... cows are fat... and players are in shape... !!! This just doesn't add up! I’m starting to think that Jimmy D didn't mean it as an exact analogy... :turn:


I hope you won't mind a minor correction which might answer your question.

owners of ranch = owners of NHL teams
cows = players
cowpies = bettman
field = ice
feed = paycheck
supermarket = fans

Money on the board:  Current total: 0

$1 for a goal by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster.  An additional $5 for a series-clinching goal scored by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster. $5 if the other team fails to score against a current Wing goalie after whom I have named a hamster.

Hamsters I have had:  (current Wings highlighted)

Henrik Pavel Tomas Nicklas Dominik

Niklas Matthew Daniel Robert

Johan Andreas Valtteri Jonathan

Andrew Patrick Ian Todd

Jordin Damien Gustav James

Did Uncle Gary get a "ghost writer" to do this book about controlling the owners?

I must say, growing up in the country and raising cattle at one time, all of this makes sense...

That's why it makes so much sense to me as well. Was born in Trenton MI but raised on a 70 acres farm for 20+ years in Tennessee.

You can't have a dynasty anymore," Devellano told Regner. "It's going to be hard because the cap and the draft really do work. What they both do is, they create tremendous parity, and the people in New York — the Gary B. Bettmans — are rubbing their hands in glee. They love it."

 

 

Do I detect a hint of contempt?


"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk
