definitely the worst part of this lockout will be missing out on some serious LOLEAFS during 24/7

yeah i have to admit, i don't always find them to be the most objective team ever, but they did point out that one of the calls against Rochester was clearly BS. good for them, you don't see that every day.

Ran into John Erskine at a bar Saturday night. I commented that I had heard he was playing men's league div 1 here in town. He either said his team sucked, or he did. So, I offered him a spot on my div 2 team. he didn't take it

Re: Bettman Lockout III Thread (aka NHL Offseason: Now & Forever)

Goddammit I have a great TR if I ever find the time to post it but I am so ****ing swamped with work, I doubt I'll get it posted anytime soon.

But the cliffs are brilliant:

- Went to one of my best friend's birthday kegger that Flyers Girl ended up at
- Got in the same hot tub as Flyers Girl
- Hooked up with another girl 5 feet away from Flyers Girl in said hot tub
- Flyers Girl left hot tub, I stayed with said girl
- ?????????
- Profit

Re: Bettman Lockout III Thread (aka NHL Offseason: Now & Forever)

well if that doesn't solve the lockout Geddy, then i don't know what will...

in other news, apparently BryzLOLov is getting paid in vodka over in the KHL



and lol Geddy, but rumours are saying that JD is getting ready to take over the Blue Jackets, not the Flames. i think i know what his favourite colour is...

also, EA is simming the season, if you really need a hockey fix, lol

Garbage-time assist for Iginla, prob an empty-netter. Standard.

Friends of Driving Play,

If there is any hockey-related idea you'd like to see written about, discussed, lol'd at, or set on fire and carried through the streets of Vancouver, please remember that suggestions are always welcome! Otherwise, we now return to your regularly scheduled Geddy Lee Show.

Re: Bettman Lockout III Thread (aka NHL Offseason: Now & Forever)

nah, the KANGZ used up all their run hot last year

if they ever play this year, they might suffer a single significant injury, or not sure a SHG/game in the playoffs, or something...

plus they're due for some team-related meltdown, has Doughty declared it "his team" yet? can't be long before Quick is forced to enter rehab, Bitchards sleeps with someone's wife, Carter quits again, etc.

Easy one. Instruct the team how to sign up for 2+2 and direct them to the hockey threads.

If I did that to you know who I'd probably feel like my life goal has been accomplished.
