It's All About The Benjamins

KKFN (AM950 “The Fan”) in Denver is reporting that, in the event of a lockout in 2004, both Joe Sakic and Rob Blake will still receive paychecks in excess of two million dollars apiece.

Apparently, both players have clauses written into their contracts guaranteeing that they will still receive pro-rated signing bonuses and payments of that ilk, even in the event of a work stoppage.

Makes you wonder how many other agents thought that far ahead, eh?

Striaghtforward hockey reporting – how’d I do, coach?

    Just goes to show once again that Lacoix has lost his mind. As w/ every other GM. Didn’t any of them have the foresight to look 5 years down the line and see how screwed they were going to be if they kept this sh*t up?

    BTW, defenstrate, check your PMs. I sent you an important one, but I’m not sure if it got to you or not. I need to get in contact w/ you somehow. Do you have AIM or MSN? I’m wesjanson14 on both… for MSN. Same request goes to both Big Booty and Manta Ray as well, I need to get in contact w/ all three of you.

    “I Care” by cw

    When hooters jiggle around,

    and I find nickels on the ground,

    I Care

    When Heatley’s got the puck,

    and the goalies start to duck,

    I Care

    But when I’ve been watching this game for years,

    and it finally brings me tears,

    I SWEAR!

    No brownie points for this one, I had to do it. I couldn’t let this one go by.
