#2281033 WhatIfSports NHL Playoff Prediction

Posted by ami on 10 April 2012 - 06:28 PM

No kidding. Lidstrom would be old enough to collect social security by the time the playoffs finished.

Nah, by the time this finally ends, retirement age will be increased. that's for sure.

#2276402 People v. NHL:

the biggest problem with the nhl, is the league is ran by fuching lawyers, not businessmen.
laywers rather find 'legal' way to squeeze money out of customers, where real businessmen find ways to improve product.

I'm guessing they don't.

But they should (and probably do) care about getting their fare share of the millions of dollars people pay to see them play. No one walks around with Holland, Burke, or Bettman on the back of their jersey.

- league is getting money from tv, ads, teams, etc,
- teams are getting there fair share of paid money through contracts with league, selling merchandise, etc.
- players are getting their fair share of paid money through contract they signed with team;

where on this picture is a void that PA should fill in? there isn't one.

are these multimillionaire professional player need a protection? from whom? from gms?! that's funny, as i said. do anybody think that datsyuk/lidstrom/etc/etc need PA 'protection' to get his fair share? I don't think so.

I'd blame PA solely if there is another lockout. not battman, not gms, but PA.

The owners love it because they can raise ticket prices. Any game outside our Division, or League, whatever they want to call the 4 Divisions/Leagues, can be considered an elite game, and up go the prices.

I thought PA stands for PLAYER Association.
Why on earth PLAYER Association would care about ticket prices?!

To protect the players so they aren't individuals but instead a group. Otherwise the general managers could just do what they want without the players and their families and lives in mind.

please, somebody explain what purpose this fuching (trade/labour/labor) union (PA) serves?

#2259855 Datsyuk out at least 2 weeks

losing arguably the best forward in the game isn't going to affect them at all?

sure. but you said quite differently:

any hope of finishing first in the western conference is now gone.

see the difference?

Wings have a history of losing their best players to injuries, they have a history of other players stepping up.

#2257122 22 is the actual record

Posted by ami on 15 February 2012 - 11:17 AM

guess what, should we win next at home, someone will start measuring a distance from home arena to road arena. and that someone will claim, that Boston or Philly won 23 just because their 23rd win was 'near or not that far' from home.

That's a healthy mindset. Congratulations.

Oh, thank you, thank you, thank you!
I take it as a compliment. Just because it's coming from you. :)

anything, I mean *anything*, that would make pens fans suffer is a good thing by definition.

I have better solution for equality-seeking unions.

Find maximum out of minimal distances that nhl teams have to travel and make all teams travel the same distance. If Rangers plays Islanders they should take red-eye flight from La-Guardia to Kansas and then from Kansas to Kennedy.

Such a 'common sense' would be very well in line with 'common sense' shown by unions, any union.

does it matter who is among victims? will it make a crime more or less vicious if it was a truck driver?

what are you talking about?

the only reason that liberal should shut the f*ck up because government has absolutely nothing to do with this particular business. It has neither legal nor ethical right to tell businesses who and why they should hire! Period.

And Molson Family instead their statement should have cut it in to the form similar to this: 'Pardon my French, madam, but got f*ck your self!'

He'll be on the ballet next year hopefully. As long as he keeps doing what he's doing.

Why? He's been doing pretty good so far. I hope he will be playing hockey next year...
