#2337479 NHL submits offer to NHLPA - **Suspension Warning Post #70 & #273*

Posted by rrasco on 03 January 2013 - 02:48 PM

Hearing rumours NHL teams are reaching out to their coaches and telling them to be ready. Some are booking flites to their cities.


I would be excited if I had not heard that 2-3x already during these 'negotiations'.

#2337441 Guess that Goalie game

Why are we not allowed to use most image extensions in this community? Making this game not so much fun.


I found that a few image extensions will say they are not allowed if you 'preview' your post, but it will still let you post them.  It did that the other day when I tried to post a GIF but didn't stop me from actually posting it.

talk about some hurt canadians http://www.sbnation....ior-hockey-2013


LOL.  I guess we hit a nerve.  My favorite part is where they are crying that all the Americans get developed in the CHL but all five goals were scored by NCAA players.

1. Call it and not the 'false offense'.

2. Can they post GIFs in the locker rooms instead?

Sad that I hear about game cancellations from my local news before I see it elsewhere. I thought it was particularly interesting they used a picture from JLA. It's like they're trying to break my heart. </3

NEW YORK (AP) — The NHL has wiped out all games through Jan. 14, and if it needs to make any more cancellations, the entire season could be the next thing to go.


Did that picture of Kane just come out Kip?

An interesting read...

This is what stands out to me. The league will not be stable unless they address the problem at hand...and that's not player salaries.

It’s not a coincidence that the most successful North American sports league also has the most rational approach to revenue sharing. Some 60% of the NFL’s $11 billion revenue pie is shared, which is why tiny Green Bay, Wisconsin can compete with big bad New York or Chicago. The other two Big Three leagues aren’t quite as egalitarian but have improved their models in recent years: MLB teams share nearly a third of localTV revenue, while NBA teams reportedly approach a 50% total revenue share (give or take a few complex calculations).
The NHL, meanwhile, has been sharing 4.5% of its $3.3 billion revenue (with not much more on the table in current talks.)

After reading/watching/following (twitter/facebook/etc...) everything that I possibly can get access to, I'm siding with the owners.

Not saying the Fehr's are not driving the bus the wrong way down the interstate, but AFAIK this is no longer about money. It's about contracting rights.

The fans have a right to be furious.

I'm just about done with this gong show. I'm going to see the Rampage and Barons play on Sunday. Screw the NHL. I'll find other ways to fill my time and empty my wallet.

#2335205 Illitch announces plan to build new arena

Posted by rrasco on 04 December 2012 - 04:07 PM

for me, the view of the ice is by far the most important thing to me. the other stuff i can deal with.

but then again i don't think i am the typical fan when it comes to going to sporting events. first off, i am smaller than the average person so the cramping of the seats isn't really a big deal for me. i usually don't buy food or beverage at the arena and i can usually hold off on the bathroom until after i leave the arena. when the game is over, i get the hell of out of detroit as fast as i can lol

I'm small too, like 5-5 150 small and I was still cramped. Bathrooms wouldn't be a problem if I didn't have 5 beers during a game. Just sneak in the exit, no one will care. I promise. :P

If it's any consolation, I hated Bettman before his contribution to a 3rd work stoppage in 18 years.

It's sad this is considered hockey news right now.

AFAIK they have already come to terms on the revenue split and the definitions of HRR, it's the players' contracting rights that are stifling progress. Obviously I'm not in the room, but that's what I get from the reports.
