Well, once again empty hope for the 2012-13 NHL season as games are nixed through November 1st.
ESPN – It is the second round of game cancellations since the lockout went into effect Sept. 19. Earlier this month, the NHL eliminated the first block of regular-season contests through Oct. 24. A total of 135 games are canceled, which amounts to 11 percent of the season.
“As expected,” New York Rangers goalie Martin Biron told The Associated Press in a text message. “We continue to work hard to find an agreement and get back to playing hockey.”
Also, these games are not necessarily lost yet.. they are technically postponed while the possibility to squeeze 82 games into the season still exists it is highly unlikely.
All I know is my fantasy football team has been better than ever strictly because i haven’t lost concentration in October like most years before… Thank you NHL.
FOX – There were three reported sightings in recent weeks.
One person who reported spying the beast said “We shouted, ‘Do you need help?’ They rushed away, all in fur, walking on two legs, making their way through the bushes and with two other limbs, straight up the hill.
The person who made the report added: “It could not be bears, as the bear walks on all fours, and they ran on two. Then they were gone.”
Okay if there was ever to be a squatch sighting i’d bet my house it’d be in mother Russia. The place is fuckin hell on earth as is, why wouldn’t you have some big mythological beast roaming.. thing fits right in. Surprised we havent seen that on a dash cam yet. Live Leak drops squatch footage this week… I guarantee it.
Squatch scares the fuckin shit out of me, no joke. If this things real I will never go camping again. I could fuck with bears, bunny rabbits and all other forest life but you show me a 7 foot mongoloid that walks on 2 feet i’m out of that bitch.
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.
You’re Going the Wrong Way. NHLStars are heading out of the NHL and Quickly.
Evgeni Malkin and Sergei Gonchar have already practiced with their KHL team in Russia, Pavel Datsyuk, Jaromir Jagr and Jussi Jokinen are among the many who have as well signed contracts and I don’t blame them for a second. These European teams are ready to spend some cake, these NHL athletes are looking to make some its an easy equation. Go where the money is. The KHL is allowed to pay NHL players a maximum of 65 per cent of what they earn under their NHL contracts. These guys can go over to the KHL make millions without worrying about a stoppage, I could see a few of them having no desire to come back.
