if the players decertify.....which they won't .........I say Bettman calls their bluff. Can you say no NHL for the next two + years.

If I am Fehr I use the threat of de-certification and get a deal done... cut your losses ( for both sides ) and stop the pissing contest. People are out of work all over the place, salaries slashed like a hindu with a machete. Time to make a deal........ Hannukah....err Christmas is coming. people are pinched, clamped whatever for money. As much as I am a pessimist, I see a deal done in the next 6 weeks.
Tell me how my ass tastes.

I swear I've heard this before.. Oh yeah about a month ago when I got slammed for suggesting that would be a tactic the PA would look at...

Two years is the window that's gonna bring the very real possibility that the NHL folds like Hostess twinkies

De-certifiacation isn't going to happen.

The players will not expose themselves to the whims of a market place. without the security of regulated pensions, insurance and league discipline.

A huge step backwards. Back to the time were third fourth liners may need day jobs. No pension, no insurance, no cap floor, no control on disciplinary action, no control on being sent to the minors or cut. Alan Eagleson's worst days are better than what they'd get out of de-certification.

Not to mention the pitfall of trying that are outlined in Bobby Mac's recent TSN column.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

Hey I figure maybe once or twice in a long while someone has something other than an opinion. The rest if the time it's basically skeet shooting, I just pull the trigger more than some, mostly out of wanting the entertainment than anything else :)

^^^ Speaking of "pulling the trigger" what's the deal with Blackhawk players and death-threats.

Chelios in '94 and now Bolland:

http://www.csnchicago.com/hockey-chicago-blackhawks/blackhawks-talk/Dave-Bolland-retweets-Bettman-comment?blockID=805391&feedID=10334

Jonah Deschamps (@jdeschamps6) sent this tweet out, regarding NHL commissioner Gary Bettman, earlier on Friday:

@jdeschamps6: “@DaveBolland can I get a RT for wanting Bettman dead?”

It was an ugly message, for sure. But what’s worse is, Bolland did retweet it. It was another case of a player speaking, tweeting – or in this case, retweeting – without thinking.

Gotta love the asshole in Bettman getting Bolland off his rocker. I wonder if he could play right wing.......

No wonder Chicago wants to send him to Vancouver for Luongo, it's a strategic move by them, dumping their bad apples onto their most hated rivals for a classy professional in Luongo.

Looks like the mediators have already been shown the door and the PA is one step closer to going nuclear.

Elliotte Friedman ‏@FriedgeHNIC
Looks like next stop will be NHLPA Disclaimer of Interest, meaning Fehr no longer represents players. Similar to decertifying, but faster.


Dreger is reporting that Bettman is suggesting just the owners and players meet sans himself, Daly and the Fehrs. PA is deliberating and has not answered yet.

What a bunch of idiots. Those fucktards are screwing this whole thing up so bad, even professional moderators can't solve it.

Split the numbers down the middle and drop the puck already! How hard can it be?

And happy post #420 to me!!!
