    Hopefully these assclowns at the players association will sign the 50 50 contract that they were offered so we can watch some hockey. If its handled soon we can start by nov 2 and play a full 82 game season by playing an extra game every 5th week hoisting the Stanley cup around the 4th of July. Sooo in light of this somewhat promising news, who's your favorite team so I can talk some shit....

    Bruins fan here.......

    I still don't think it necessarily looks good. The league has budged a little in this latest proposal, but Fehr can be stubborn. Let's see how they respond......

    My Canadian wife is going crazy without her hockey. She's been watching the Russian league to get her fix. Oh yeah, Go Winnipeg Jets!

    I live in Santa Cruz so the Sharks are the #1 team, best franchise in the NHL.

    Yes he very much so can be. It comes down to this revenue split. Everything else has pretty much been handled ( insurance, salary cap, free agency, and injured player status) hopefully they can get it done sooner than later. I would love to see my ducks hoist that cup again....

    Well fehr fucked it up. Fehr is a noodge nothing gets by him. When your negotiating its nice to have a guy who wonders why players salaries must be capped when NHL franchise values are not, a guy who says a 50-50 split sounds good but means nothing when the players are providing 100% of the entertainment. But he's not a stone wall. If he were, he and the players would be demanding a much larger salary pieace, or the end of the cap, in light of hockey's remarkable growth since the previous lockout. Fehr gave three proposals to the league Thursday, and they were slapped away. All would get to the 50-50 formula eventually. The problem, and a complex one, is that the league wants to reduce salaries on the front end and them restore them- the make whole provision- at the end. A 50-50 split, while honoring current contracts might be a mathematical impossibility. But since both groups are talking a 50-50 perhaps they really are closer to shore than they think. I just want to see some goddamn hockey...,

    Edmonton oilers forward Ben eager was charged with assault following a disturbance that took place in a Toronto bar last weekend. He is to appear in court nov. 26. Police said eager and his 31 year old brother were charged with threatening bodily harm, causing bodily harm and assault with a weopon. Toronto police const. Tony Vella said one man was taken to the hospital. The alleged assault happened about 1am Saturday. The 6- foot-2 240 pound eager has two years left on a $3.3 million contract with the oilers. The 28 year old winger had 8 goals and 5 assists in 63 games last season.

    Just heard we might get some news Thursday but I'm not holding my breath.

    In my hockey pool we have picked KHL teams this year to help offset the no NHL so far.

    Yea I heard the same. We did the same thing also for our fantasy league. It's fun actually because nobody has a real edge being as most of these players are unknown, the games are fun as hell to watch though. I wish we could get college hockey here in SoCal on the tube....

    Nice.

    Great team names too. Pronouncing them is half the fun.

    I have Severstal Cherepovets, Vityaz Chekhov, Spatak Moscow and Torpedo Nizhny Novgorod.

    Yea you have to get that Russian grunt down to pronounce them correctly. I'm Norwegian and actually played in both Russia and Denmark in college so I got a little bit of an upper hand. I do wish we could get done NHL started its depressing that there argueing over money that the fans are the one to provide. We have an adult league we play in at anahiem ice and were actually looking for a couple guys if your interested.
