NHL, NHLPA shit on your dreams for a ’12-’13 season

  Wednesday night we heard Bettman give the shortest presser ever. It was so short you could fit his entire message in a single tweet. We all fell for the optimism. We were like: And… And then… Hell, we were so stoked by the high the NHL and NHLPA left us we even made this: […]

Apparently Jeremy Jacobs and Ryan Miller had words last night

Happy Anniversary Joe Thornton…NOW GET OUT

November 30, 2005.  Today is the anniversary of Joe Thornton being traded to the Sharks for "no one". You remember this right? Thornton signed a huge (at the time) deal with the Bruins.
