@michealw31: "NHLPA asks for cookie. NHL gives PA cookie. NHLPA asks for milk ..."
Candidate for tweet of the year from @ian_mendes:
Some NHL owners are labeled as hawks; others as doves. Apparently, Jeremy Jacobs is being cast as a pigeon because he craps on new ideas.
BSens coach Luke Richardson, as quoted by @PSBSens:
'I don’t hear about the lockout much here like I would in Ottawa but until the NHL comes back there is no interest right now. It’s football season and other things are going on. The NHL has to be careful of letting things slide too far.”
I'm guessing there are more people up watching from within 10 blocks of my house than actually in attendance in Ufa.
Reminder: Twitter is a live news feed. First rule of Fight Club: If you haven't watched the CAN game yet and plan to, stay off Twitter.
Eric Macramalla @EricOnSportsLawMy fat gut says season RT "@grinder36: @EricOnSportsLaw gut feeling right now, do we have a season?"
I'm still pulling for Armageddon to happen to this stupid hapless league with an a**hole like Bettman in charge but the lawyer says they could still have a season. It's totally sickening whenever Bettman says "we have the greatest fans in the world and we expect them to be back" or words to that effect.I'm not buying Center Ice this year no matter what these jackasses do that's for sure.
Unless Center Ice is damn near free that is. I'm already backing down from my stated position. What can I say I'm a stupid fan.
Josh Rimer @JoshRimerHockeyIf and when a new CBA is signed, word on the street is the NHL will make Centre Ice free for the season. Retweeted by Steve Goldstein
this is why I had to go back on not getting Center Ice, I saw this may happen.....
@ian_mendes ... great quote:
"It's fitting that the CBA talks will resume on New Year's Eve in Manhattan because nobody drops the ball like the NHL."
Off topic from hockey, because everyone can use a diversion from the stupidity of the NHL right now (@Cmdr_Hadfield is Canadian astronaut Chris Hatfield who just started several months on the International Space Station). All accounts are the real person:
@WilliamShatner: @Cmdr_Hadfield Are you tweeting from space? MBB
@Cmdr_Hadfield: @WilliamShatner Yes, Standard Orbit, Captain. And we're detecting signs of life on the surface.
@GeorgeTakei: @Cmdr_Hadfield I'm fine with beaming down with the away team, as long as I don't have to wear the red shirt.
A little city-wide Twitter war going on this morning in Texas:
@DallasCowboys: "Similarly in the category of nobody-cares…the NHL is back!"
@DallasStars: "At least our #9 got the job done....." RT:" @DallasCowboys Similarly in the category of nobody-cares…the NHL is back!" pic.twitter.com/06y0e6iG

I wouldn't count too much on that. It's my understanding the NHL doesn't directly deliver the feed to your house, but uses the cable companies for that. Even if the NHL decided to provide all feeds for free, the d-bag cable companies will find a way to charge you money for it and cash it as pure profit.
These are for Russell, I figured he missed his old buddy from HNIC

Russell was that you who sent this message to Al?
Hate is such an ugly word, TJ.
I simply dislike the crap-covered douchebag.

Jason York @jasonyork33@m_jackson1980 I watched Karlsson all this week at practice. For those who think there will be a dip - he's actually better this year

"NHL loses its best and most exciting player because of 1) missed call by ref and 2) guy who should have been kicked out of league 3 yrs ago"
that could be costly.

I thought the meteor was Alfie's wrath caused by the Karlsson injury...
