Boston Bruins Welcome Back Milan Lucic

For the first time since he has been traded, Milan Lucic appeared at The Garden.  After reading his Players Tribune article, it makes sense that the move was necessary, it makes sense that during his last year with the bruins, Lucic wasn’t playing his game. I am happy to see the successes he is having in LA but damn if he’s not missed in the city of Boston. Lucic was Boston hockey, he brought back memories of old Boston hockey and the guys who played the game hard and fast. The Bruins lost a little identity when they lost Lucic and Thornton and they are both greatly remembered by the city of Boston.

NHL 50/50 Split: Lockout Explained With Beer

Wow. That was absolutely perfect, Really broke it down for me too.

“I buy the Mrs. Vickies, I buy the fuckin smokes”

Thanks Wes W. for the video.

Are We Over The NHL?

 

It sure seems like we are over the NHL, if not.. we are well into the pathway there.  At this time, NHL training camps are supposed to begin bringing back players from all over the world to their in season homes. As a fan its almost as if the 3rd time is a charm rule comes into play. Lock us out once okay 2nd time a whole season was rough however, we bounced back… but this third time … fuck it, why bother let the NHL fade, we’ll stick to our ponds and rinks and NHL 13. At this point we are just sick of the dramatics. I understand both sides are there to do a job and fight for what belongs to them which when put like that does not seem to lead to a satisfactory outcome.

With Sweden opening its doors to NHL athletes as well as many other countries its hard to see athletes who play in the NHL wouldn’t travel abroad mostly back to their home countries. The countdown has begun to when the lockout will end but when it does end will it be too late. A Grimm outlook to have but the NHL’s future is not looking too bright.

Bring Back the NHL Already.

It looks like Gary Bettman will be putting the league on hold if no deal is met by September 15. Well two words for you Gary Fuck you. I’m not even sure Gary Bettman is familiar with the sport of hockey, certainly he is not familiar with the consequences of a Lock out. With a statement like : “We recovered well last time [there was a lockout] because we have the world’s greatest fans.” This guy has to be one of the biggest douche bags on the planet.. The NHL recovered at a slugs pace last time when it remained locked out for 301 days. Surely us fans will come back to the sport because we love it, its most certainly not because of the NHL however. We couldnt give a fuck about Gary Bettman and the rest of the owners.

This is all I care about:
