Bettman Can't Be Happy With This Statement From Canes Owner

Peter Karamanos is quoted today saying that the season is basically lost and that he believes the fans will come back when there is a cost certainty.

Bettman's strategy

In this whole lockout situation the only thing we see is the owners totally ripping the NHLPA and setting up the public to view the players as overpaid whiners.

Quit blaming just the owners for this mess

I read an article by Al Strachan (biggest idiot in the world). He sarcastically blames the owners and accuses them of spending stupidly.

Theo wants to play

Theoren Fleury is my all time favorite player, and although choices he’s made in life may not have been perfect, he was a great player, and truly loved the game.

Capitals might be worried

2006 Olympics (If Pro's can go) – Canadian Edition

I have been here for just over two years under various user names, and remember the talks about the 2002 Olympic team. Now we must look and think, as 2005 opens in 5 hours and 45 minutes, the Winter Olympics are a year, a month and two weeks away, and the team must be assembled within 1 year, and if the rules are the same as 02, they have to name eight players in March.
