Found November 08, 2012 on Cardinals Diaspora:
PLAYERS: Gary Bettman
If you've never been to an NHL game, you're missing out on a good time.  It's fun. Hell, it's real fun.   Watching on TV is OK. The big games and the playoffs are always good, but something about being in an NHL rink on a Saturday night is electric.   And thanks to the boneheads that run the NHL, this is the second time in 5 years that the league is on the verge of losing a season.   By proxy, denying us fun.   Worry not, though. Because Cardinal legend Chris Carpenter has no time for this ****.   No sir.   As you can see from the picture to the right, he's been out keeping the Blues in shape. And if Donal Fehr and Gary Bettman don't get their heads out of their butts ASAP, Carp is going to go to NY and drop the gloves.   Is there anything this guy can't do?   At this point, I'm kind of expecting #29 to replace Bradford if the Rams can't get another win or two before the end of...

Matthew Barry: Obama and the NHL

President Obama couldn't balance the disparity between both parties, still has a lot of people teed off, and the popular vote told us they really didn't like what he's been doing. Oh, wait. That's Gary Bettman. The stock market reacted this morning to the wonderful election news by plummeting 300 points. Lets hope the NHL talks don't plummet into New York...

Travis Yost: All CBA Eyes Turn to Friday

Make sure to follow Travis on Twitter! -- A new collective bargaining agreement wasn't going to be reached on Thursday. And, after talks adjourned beyond the five-hour mark, commissioner Gary Bettman expressed just how much ground still needed to be covered. There's good news, though -- plenty of it. In just two weeks, the NHL's offered to absorb all of the make...

What Direction Is This Headed?

from Scott Burnside of ESPN, Oblivion? Redemption?  Neither NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman nor NHLPA executive director Donald Fehr has distinguished himself thus far in terms of charting a course to a successful resolution to the current lockout of the NHL’s players.  Strategies on both sides have been at best curious and at worst deeply flawed.  Were it...

GARTH: League and Players Have A Lot Of Work To Do

Another day, another marathon bargaining meeting. The owners and players met Thursday for approximately five hours. The meeting ended at approximately 6 p.m. The two groups have agreed to meet again Friday. Seven hours on talks on Tuesday. Six hours on Wednesday. Eighteen hours of discussions this week.

Overtime Thriller: How The Boston Bruins Survived Buffalo In The 1983 Stanley Cup Playoffs

Pete Peeters won the Vezina Trophy in 1983 and helped the Bruins win two playoff rounds. Normally, the hockey coverage here at BST&N  would be handled by some of our knowledgeable writers like Joe Gill and others. But thanks to the “leadership” of Gary Bettman, if we want to talk hockey this year we have to dig into the annals of history, so I’ll try and get us our Bruins...

NHL, union to meet again on Friday

The best that can be said about the ongoing NHL labor negotiations is that they are still going, and will continue for at least a fourth straight day. The league and the locked-out players' association got back together Thursday and accomplished enough over five-plus hours to make plans to meet again Friday. ''I am not going to discuss the negotiations or the substance...

A Summary Of Today’s CBA Meeting

from the CP at CBC, Thursday's talks were held at the offices of a midtown Manhattan law firm. So far, the sides have had little to say publicly about how the discussions have gone. Sources told The Canadian Press that the Players' Association tabled an offer Wednesday night regarding revenue sharing and the league's "make whole" provision, which is...

A step in the right direction: Progress

Well yesterday sure was interesting. The NHL and NHLPA met at an undisclosed location at 3pm EST, and didn’t emerge until 10:15pm. For those keeping track that’s seven hours of negotiating in one day, which is about as much time spent as all other days combined. Fascinating. It’s amazing what pressure can do. And make no mistake, there is now pressure on the NHL to get something...

Afternoon Line

So if you can't find it in your heart to bring back the game for the sake of the millions worldwide who will throw money into your coffers, consider doing it for the real fans.
