those comments by Bettman make me sick and are proof of how is holding the greatest game in the world HOSTAGE, the man is a disgrace to this sport and a disgrace to Judaism and it is 100% completely embarrassing that this man is one of us !!!!
What he is doing should be criminal and this man needs to be removed from any involvement what so ever with the sport at this level !!!!!!
He's flat out an undeniable disgrace to this sport and this game and he and his little droogies are destroying it in every way form top to bottom.
Hi stance on head shots and the league's policies are completely irresponsible and completely whacked and reek of corruption and a bizarre inexplicable "clusteryouknowwhat" of a need he feels need to market this game to American adolescents.
The man and everyone on his corrupt team is so out of touch with reality it is flabbergasting !!!
and when the day comes when A guy lay dead on the ice because of it and him., I am willing to bet you right now his response that day will be...
"we never saw it coming"
Because he is a FLAT OUT LIAR and a Whore who has taken the sport Hostage for his own personal gains !!!!!!

The situation truly sucks....but someone answer this question....
If there locked out, does that time count against a players contract??

Reason why Im asking is because it would be nice to bring the smurfs contracts to end..And if it would take a lock out to make it happen and I didnt have to see them play......would be Priceless!!!!!!!hahah

There is alot of people to blame here Sparty and I agree its very childish....
Whats sad about this is the staff that dont have the big contracts and have to work there to support themselves or families or take the work on as a second job to make ends meat...

As much as I hate to say it....Im getting to the point that I dont care....
What we need to do as fans is just stop going...Create our own union!!! Lets call it NHLFU (NHL Fan Union)....We stop going until prices drop 50%...stop buying arena food until they cut prices by 40%....stop buying the jersey's and souveniors until prices drop by 49%....

Its our fault for paying them and then we watch them fight over the money and then we get BURNT!!
Fan union is the way to go and we should be at these meetings!!!!

NHL Boycott Petition:

Help by signing the petition to boycott the NHL if they continue with this lockout. They think us fans are doormats and will just come running back. Prove to them we are more united then the NHLPA and we control the revenue stream.

My question is do the players being sent down to the minors still get paid their full salary ?? I think they do if they are on a one way contract... if the owners wanted to send a real message they would keep them in the nhl and not pay them a thing...

nice Joe I agree !!!

then I read this today....

NEW YORK -- The National Hockey League and National Hockey League Players' Association will continue negotiating toward a new Collective Bargaining Agreement on Thursday at an undisclosed location in New York City.

The NHL and NHLPA have been without a CBA since Sept. 15 and the 2012-13 regular-season schedule has already been cancelled through Nov. 30. In addition, the Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic and the Hockeytown Winter Festival have both been cancelled.

The clsssic is already gone, so ya gotta figure all this talk is just BS and the game is suffering now because of corrupt owners and NHL League Office MGMT and spoiled rotten under achieving over rated millionaire pink ass players whyo have held this game hostage for the 3rd time in the last 15 years !!!!!!

they should all be black balled form hockey and never permitted to return to it on a professional level...every single one of them !!!

and even if they do comeback, what I have learned this off season is the Montreal Canadiens are being managed and run and owned by Complete Fucking Morons !

even if hockey comes back now there is NO fucking way I am supporting a Team that told us all how important winning is, then decided to kerp Kaberle and Gionta and the Price and the rest of the completely over rated and useless garbage that makes up their hockey team and has made up their team for almost 20 full years now !!!

Just Markov already being injured over sees is proof enough how completely fucked up the MGMT for the Habs is just have signed him again and kept him again when we know 1`00% for certain just how fucking useless he is and has been his entire career...how me maintains his stature when in 12 fucking PLUS season he has accomplished 100% of nothing is beyond me !!!

someone please prove me wrong show me one tape or video of Markov "PWNING" any one single reg season or playoff game by himself !!!

EVER !

It has not happened even ONCE in approximately 15 seasons now !!!

Fucking Eric Desjardin made Markov look like a comnplete Joke and what did this same fucking owner do with him...traded him away for what amounted to nothing, because the player he got he traded back for nothing after, same thing for John Leclair and many many others...

The Habs have ZERO fucking intentions of winning anything for years and years and years to come, that much is 100% certain !!!

and especially with this complete Baffoon wanna be cowboy so called goal tender who in 6 full years now has done 100% of NOTHING other than FAIL...he is nothing less than an EPIC FAILURE !!!

They gave him 50 Million for it !!!

maybe the single biggest mistake ever made in the history of this sport !!!

& Over the next 6 Fucking years at that !!!

A CLEARLY UNJUSTIFIABLE AND INEXPLICABLE OUTRIGHT COMMITMENT TO LOSING AND NOTHING LESS AND ONE THAT DEFIES LOGIC...IT WAS AND IS AND WILL BE AS LONG AS HE IS THERE THE VERY DEFINITION PERSONIFIED OF THE WORD "INSANITY"...DOING THE SAME THING OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN BUT SOMEHOW EXPECTING A DIFFERENT RESULT !!!!!!

THE ENTIRE ORGANIZATION IS THE POSTER CHILD FOR INSANITY AND STUPIDITY IN SPORTS MANAGEMENT !!!
