Ducks on Life Supports…or another NHL act

TSN is reporting that the NHL might purchase the Ducks if Disney tries to under sell them. Could the Ducks be on their way out? I hope so. Do I believe it? It’s hockey, I’m from Toronto, no matter what I want, it will NEVER HAPPEN!The mystery blogger has been saying for a while that teams are reporting to be in worse financial situations then they are, to scare the players. For instance that report last week that the season could be cancelled in less then 48 hours. Total BS. It’s been half a week since then and we’re still holding out hope.

Second, the Ducks reported price is 108 million dollars. That is being under sold? Why bother reporting that they could buy the Ducks if that’s how high the price is. The Sabres went for 93 million and the Sens 100 million. Under sold I doubt it. I am not buying this.

Third of all, if the season is not cancelled in the next few hours (it’s three fifteen on Sunday) then they will not cancel the season until it is impossible to hold a season. The 2005 season could go out till July, which Chris Chelios says will be ok. Why the next few hours? Because they want the Super Bowl hype to quiet down anger. Won’t quiet me down. The NFL sucks. GO CFL GO!

This is why the Ducks will NOT go on life support, and the NHL is full of greed..

    Thanks – I forgot about him. There’s probably more, too.

    My god – this is more desperate than we got last summer….

  2. hockeyhead says:

    good job B/A-

  3. defenestrate says:

    Are you okay?

  4. defenestrate says:

    They wouldn’t do you any good now….

    I loved those commercials where they tried to teach people “hockey lingo” – It’s not a “stick”, it’s a “twig” that you “one-time the biscuit into the cage” with….

    They all sounded like Mike Myers in “Mystery, Alaska”… or maybe Patrick Swayze in “Youngblood”…

  5. hockeyhead says:

    youngblood…great movie…but with this talk about tone loc, youngblood and rush people are going to think we are like dandoeagle.

  6. Rico420 says:

    best comment of the season!

  7. defenestrate says:

    I agree….especially since there is no season. Next thing you know, we’ll be quoting movies again.

    “Is that you, John Wayne? Is this me?”

  8. defenestrate says:

    When a freaking Mighty Ducks article gets over 100 comments, you know it’s time for them to get some sort of a season together.

    Even if it’s the kids from MD#1 against the kids from MD#3.

  9. habsoverserver says:

    The kids from MD #1 are all playing in Europe and most of the kids from MD #2 are in the ECHL.

  10. defenestrate says:

    How about the morons from Slapshot 2? Or have the Shreveport Mudbugs picked them off of waivers?

    nah its playboy….no pictures here

    I know kids today speak a different language, but…

    The are now out saying McNabb had the flu and couldn’t call the plays because he was going to puke at the end of the game. Bob Froze did that once at a game my dad went to. He still talks about it today. So much for maturity.

    McNabb needs to SQUISH thsi BS excuse. If he wasn’t well then get Detmer or Blake in there. I would put Rob Blake in there myself since he is on my fantasy team and I could have likely have activated him. I hear he has a MEAN spiral.

  15. Flyers_Fan_In_LA says:


    I can’t make up stuff this good. It actually happened. 🙂

  16. Flyers_Fan_In_LA says:

    That chick is SMOKING hot. I LOVE her accent. It is slight but SO SO SO sexy.

    Reminds me of the bull dykes who invented the glow puck… (not really – just trying to deal with a burried, painful memory from my past that has been exorcized in this lack of NHL hockey)

  17. Flyers_Fan_In_LA says:

    I mean we are talking about and glow pucks. I thought we were not supposed to care?

  18. defenestrate says:

    Oh, I believe you. It’s too “Paul Harvey” not to be true.

    Besides, I spent a year in California (in four months) in 1981. A jarring culture shock for a poor upstate NY farm boy, I tell you…..

  19. defenestrate says:

    Were they both bull dykes? Someone has to be on the bottom……

    They could have at least let you watch.

  20. defenestrate says:

    We’re suffering withdrawl symptoms. As a result, we’re free-associating between pop culture and repressed pornographic fantasies.

    Mad TV’s Bobby Lee looks better as Connie Chung than Connie Chung does.

    See, it’s happening again.

    I miss Ms. Swan. I had all kinds of sick fantasies about her.

  21. Flyers_Fan_In_LA says:

    You lost me on that one. It must be some kind of canadian dry humor.

    Please try to keep it more Chris Rock and or Beavis for me – a language I can understand

  22. hockeyhead says:

    bob froese, there is a name i have not heard in a while. makes me think of gilles meloche or chico reshce.

    tom brady had the flu in the champ game and big ben had broken toes….these guys are tough and we know it. donovan played with a broken foot…i don’t know.

  23. hockeyhead says:

    this is one of electros alter egos….it is better than knobbygobbler or any of the rude perverted homo rants.

    we can survive but it is going to be a long wait. keep the s hit flying and the laughs coming.

  24. hockeyhead says:

    what about Degrassi Junior High? (and i am american) LOL.

  25. defenestrate says:

    Yes! And I’m American, too – now. I think there’s a hidden subtext in that show just for dirty old men.

    Of course, I felt the same way about “Facts Of Life”, too. Maybe I’m just a dirty old man.

  26. hockeyhead says:

    that’s what keeps us young, the dirt!!!!

  27. 19Yzerman says:

    Portland was the first USA city to challange for the Stanley Cup. 1917?? I think!! somewhere in there.

    The Portland Rosebuds

  28. defenestrate says:

    Then I’m really only 16…in dog years.

  29. Oilerz says:

    I can’t believe this thread! Wake up! Wake up! You’re snoring!

  30. hockeyhead says:

    oilerz, just blame the NHLPA and owners for this thread.!!!!!!

    just cuz those jerks don’t have hockey does not mean we cant have fun.

  31. Oilerz says:

    Will do, I have a call in to both of them right now, but I’m on hold. Something about a meeting or something….

  32. hockeyhead says:

    just imagine if this goes on for a couple years like gretzky said….

    anyone know if that new american dad cartooon is any good?

  33. defenestrate says:

    I think Maxim described it best (the cartoon, but it applies to HTR these days as well):

    “Why, yes! I’d love some more angel dust – thanks for asking…”

  34. hockeyhead says:

    if i may quote as well

    “It’s funny cuz it’s true”. (homer jay)

  35. OilersRush says:

    What are you talking about with Columbus? Actually its one of the better new markets. It was a hockey town before the NHL ever came around. Have you ever heard of Ohio State Hockey?Columbus is a proven hockey market unlike Nashville Carolina and other places the NHL expanded to.

    Bettman actually got it right with Columbus and Minnesota.
