Top Ten Things That Happened in the Lockout

There have been alot of interesting things that happened during the lockout. Here’s my top ten.1o. Aging Leafs the Champs!

-After seeing the lockout nearly end four times, Leaf fans wrote dumb comment after dumb comment about how a shortened will help the Leafs win the cup.

9. The Bostfull get Battered

– HTR had it’s first ever quiz, and while I bragged about how I would dominate, I came in sixth… but we all know Ranger fan pulled a Glen Sather and bought the answers.

8. A little pre-mature

– After reports that a deal is done, that idiot Leafy McLeaf goes and writes a Mighty Ducks season preview, in attempt to start a series of previews, McLeaf not only didn’t bother to do the other 29 (as ussual) but the season was cancelled several weeks later.

7. Comming Together

-Opinions on the lockout force LeafyMcLeaf (A Conservative Leafs fan) and Flyers_fan_In_LA (A liberal Flyers fan) to not hate each other.

6. The eventual slow down

-With no hockey HTR loses members and article production slows down. Of course now that I’m back you’ll get another article a day from me.

5. All that for nothing?

-After saying No cap no cap no cap, the NHLPA moves off a cap after missing half a season, then after saying no linkage no linkage no linkage, the PA decides to go with linkage according to several reports.

4. Wolrd Chumps

-After assuming that the lockout would boost the competition at the world Championships, the only team that even had half of what should have been it’s team was the Czech republic.

3. This is what we’ve sunk to?

-Poll finds that fifty percent of hockey fans say they sunk so low as to watch a basketball game during the lockout.

2. The Eklund Saga

-Blogger Eklund reports non-stop, funny, everyone here believed him, but all Wow members took him as a fraud.

1. And we’re done.. no…yes… no.. yes…maybe.. no.. yes…

-Hope for an NHL season is lost and regained about elevan times before March comes and we come to our senses.

Any other thoughts people?

    good idea but i can do without the leafy saga….

    what happened during the lockout was the emergence of joe thornton as a superstar. strong showings in the world cup and the world championships. he was a top scorer in both tourneys.

    led davos of the swiss league to the championship. was also a leading scorer. worked really well with Nash.

  2. NjDEVSFN says:

    i wouldn’t label Eklund a fraud…ESPN and EJ Hradek reported the same crap a few days after the lockout ended

    Seeing Oilsfan_socks getting the boot from Lint.

    It was like watching an intoxicated person walking around a bar bumping into everyone cursing at everyone and finally bumping into the bouncer spilling beer on him and cursing at him also. Resulting in getting Booted.

    Then last week that individual made a one-time/one-word reappearance. Was that a reboot?

  4. ranger_fan says:

    All of us believed? It was pretty much Flyer_Fan_in_LA believing, and myself saying in wall was crap.

    Yes I did buy the answers and I am so proud of it. I have this button, that I don’t know what the hell to do about it. If anyone has anything they would love to hear yours trully ramble about, let me know.

    1. Should be rubbing it in to those teams that have struggled. Yes the Leafs. 1967, the Flyers, 1975, and the Rangers, (havent made playoffs since), 1997

  5. LeafyMcLeaf says:

    I still believe Eklund, I think he was used by the PA to spread stuff to hurt the owners, he reports alot before TSN and Sportsnet, by hours, days, and even weeks some times.

    Ranger_Fan, I would love to hear one of your ramblings about your take on the Rangers rebuilding. Just seeing that button is worth it. It’s a really cool button, red, white, and blue do really well together.

  6. LeafyMcLeaf says:

    Damn! I forgot about that. That would be number 3!

  7. NYRules says:

    It’s funny…. I haven’t seen real hockey in new york in 4 years.

    Not since the fly line has there been any hope here. It really seemed we were going back to the top then that jackass traded York and Fleury went back to AA and lindros went back to the hospital

  8. LeafyMcLeaf says:

    We all know New York was only Fleury’s location so he could buy drugs, look where he went to, Chicago. If he comes back, then where next Toronto? We’ve got alot of pot heads. I hope Fleury comes back to the NHL, I don’t hate him, that joke was just to easy.

    I agree, Sather had something good in 2002 with the Fly line, they could have made the playoffs, but he traded York… FOR POTI! UGh…

    I think the Canucks would be more suitable for him.

  10. ranger_fan says:

    I suppose I could do one on the Rangers, but Nords did a Ranger article and which was really good, and it really didnt get any response. Therefore, I dont think Ill do one for at least a couple of weeks.

  11. LeafyMcLeaf says:

    I agree. Vancouvers really good for drugs.

  12. wheresthesoda says:

    yea, the fly line kicked ass, anybody that year that played with york and lindros play amazing, even jeff toms, who had a hat trick. Sandy mccarthy even played great. But once the rangers got Bure, fluery was off the line, they were going to have Lindros-Bure-York, but they ended up trading York last minute, which was one of the biggest mistakes.

  13. 19Yzerman says:

    I forgot about the annual Leafs vs Wings alumni game that was fun to watch. Did you see that one Leafy? Leafs won. It was cool lots of scoring and good sportsmanship. Instead of taking steroids and laying hits on each other these guys take gueritol hug each other.

  14. LeafyMcLeaf says:

    No but I saw the game between the Conservative MPs and Liberal MPs (Canadian govermental system) and the Conservatives destroyed them 5-2. Anf a little before that, Toronto cops humiliated Ottawa cops I forget the score though.

  15. 19Yzerman says:

    See that is something that would not draw much attention here. If not for the lockout happening at a time when the Pistons are doing well I wouldn’t be watching 1/3 of the basketball games if any like I have been. There cannot be another lost season. I hear talks of the NBA’s CBA expiration and hope they have a big nasty lockout causing NBA fans to watch hockey.
