You're right KB, but you're forgetting 1 specific thing, the golden rule. He with the gold makes the rules. Do you think that either of these entities care about the fans? They're both trying to pad their own pockets. If we tried something like this, you would have both of them on your butt. I'm sure their lawyers are better than anyones.

Yeah I guess so.




Sure would be fun though wouldn't it. Watching guys that had worked all their life getting a chance to play a game for a year.

That's why we have to support Junior hockey more. They say that TO is a hockey town, I don't see the support for the Junior teams that you see for the Leafs. Halifax has had various AHL, proffesional teams, but never had a successful team until the Juniors came in. Try to get a ticket now. This team brought us such players as J.S. Gigere, A. Tanguay. Juniors is where the hockey's at.

Are you saying we should give the cup to the juniors, or the other pro leagues then? If we go with the pros, how about letting some European teams in?

I think Juniors are disqualified due to their lack of "time in." Pro leagues, guys that have payed their dues.

They already have cups for most of the juniors leagues, I know the AHL plays for the Calder Cup.

Not to be confused with the Calder trophy going to the NHL's rookie of the year.

Our local junior team, the Philadelphia Phantoms, has great attendance and are alot of fun to attend. And it wont break the bank.

My opinion is if there's no NHL then there's no Stanley Cup. It's way too prestigious to give to just anyone, think of what it takes to win it.

it sure looks to me like the teams are signing players as if they expect there to be a season this year, but then i read that there is no progress in the talks, any other thoughts on this?

I found that kinda funny too. The Canadians are like two players short of having an entire roster

and Brett Hull just signed a contract with a new team. So what does this mean, are they thinkign there is a season, or are they hoping that there is going to be a season?

I think that it is mostly a sort of a hoping.

Also, they don't want there to be a season that starts two days after the lockout, so the players are extra insurance for if there is a lockout.

DSeems to me like the owners are shooting themselves in the fot by signing contracts now, should they wait until a new agreement is reached, if they are losing so much money?
