Original Six League!

Postby mattola » Fri Sep 17, 2004 11:27 am

the Original Six league is rumored to be starting to get some hockey players playing in North America. Teams have been drafted (not posted yet however some Canucks have gone to Boston and some to Toronto).

my question is why the hell should we pay for this and support these players when they are in a lockout with the NHL?

Would you watch this product on TV generating revenue that would go to these players?

Would you go to a game if a tour came through your city?

I at first (start of the negotiations) thought I would. not now. no way do I support something that was created as a result of taking my NHL season away.

I am forced to agree wit hMatty on this one. I support the Canucks. Not the players.

Hell no. The players can solve the NHL issue, and until then they can suffer without any support from me. (Because I'm so important... :lol: )

NO. The PA won't get one penny from me or any other form of support.

I thnk you guys are talking about the OSHL? The only Canucks involved that I remember were Dan Cloutier and Brian Allen. They do have a website though, I think it's www.oshl.ca. I'd watch them if they were televised, it's supposed to be 4-on-4 hockey, but they're all in the eastern hemisphere so even if I wanted to buy a ticket I couldn't.

Forget it. I think us fans should stay away and not support any of the players until they're back playing in the NHL. The only way we have a voice in all of this (until the NHLFA gets to 75,000 members) is with our wallets... give them money some other way and they're not going to be interested in going back to the table.

You all sound so thoughtless. How do you expect these poor bastards to keep up their Ferrari payments? You got them into this mess. You supported their inflated salaries and now you just want to cut them dry? Do realize what this could do to the little people - the resort owners on the French Riviera - the Italian suit industry - the caviar suppliers?

How can not support this league of money junkies? All they're asking for is enough money to so they don't have to lay of their maids and personal valets.

Hold on Vegas, if they want to go on a Disney tour on ice then that's fine with me. All I am saying is I wouldn't spend my money on it!

I'll keep watching the real and best hockey league, the WHL!

voted "Don't Care". Players and owners are both being too damned stupid.

from the looks of the first score, (16-13, Cloutier with the win), the players don't much care either.
for anyone who thought more scoring automatically makes a better game, here's proof to the contrary.

But at $60 bucks a seat, (??!?!?!?), are the opinions of those who watched really the opinions that matter?

the owner is trying to make a profit, so i guess it makes perfect sense to him. the seats are only half-filled too. (some 2000 of 4000)
