from Joe Haggerty of CSNNE,
Winnipeg Jets representation at a recent NHL Board of Governors meeting piped up to say it was opposed to engaging in a long, bloody lockout sure to stymie their franchise’s momentum and hurt the game of hockey.
It wasn’t Winnipeg owner Mark Chipman, but rather one of the alternate governors representing the Jets.
Bruins Principal Owner and Chairman of the Board of Governors Jeremy Jacobs answered by reprimanding the Winnipeg representative as one of the “new kids on the block” and informed him that he would know when he was allowed to speak in the NHL board room.
That’s the kind of hawkish, dismissive, bully mentality that's driving the bus for the NHL lockout that's now cancelled games through the middle of December.
It’s also the reason why Bruins fans should hold Boston Bruins owner Jeremy Jacobs personally responsible.

AROUND THE WEB
Not sure how we've never seen this before but the headline says it all.
Amazing. This is kinda how we sound every morning we wake up and there's no new CBA in place.
Also, video is still kinda relevant even after all these years. Earlier today Joe Haggerty wrote a column ***** slapping Jacobs for bullying teams into prolonging the lockout.
from Ed Tait of the Winnipeg Free Press,
The Winnipeg Jets and the National Hockey League are denying a report out of Boston that suggests Bruins’ owner Jeremy Jacobs reprimanded a Jets’ representative at a recent NHL Board of Governors meeting....
The story said Jacobs ‘answered by reprimanding the Winnipeg representative as one of the "new kids on the block...

A few quick CBA notes on day seventy-five of the 2012 NHL lockout.
(1) The NHL and NHLPA separately met with federal mediators for the first time on Wednesday. It's believed that both sides prepared briefs to outline the current negotiations stalemate to the neutral third-party in the hopes of finding resolution through mutual compromise...

Interesting stuff on the Internet. Usually the cry from people who don't know any better about the lockout is this:
"THIS IS ALL GARY BETTMAN'S FAULT,"
While that is probably true, the Internet has turned it's lazers on Boston Bruins owners Jeremy Jacobs.
This article lays it out pretty clear:
Tyler Seguin must have been CLAIRVOYANT, he knew back in 2011 that Bruins owner Jeremy Jacobs was going to SCREW him (and other Bruins) over by NOT HONORING his pre-lockout contract.
How can you believe in a boss that talks out BOTH sides of his mouth?
I wonder how the players will treat Jacobs after the NHL Lockout ends…..probably like the relative you REALLY HATE, but have to...
Twitter is abuzz right now with Jeremy Jacobs bashing and it is fabulous. If tweets were throwing knives, Jacobs would be sliced, diced and cut into a fine mash. He's getting CRUSHED and rightfully so. The guy is a total asshole. He's currently the President of the NHL Board of Governors, which basically means he's running the lockout while people are too busy blaming...

This is one of the stories that emerged today... Apparently, one of the Winnipeg Jets one of the alternative governors of the Winnipeg Jets spoke out of turn and Boston Bruins owner Jeremy Jacobs put him back in his place.

If I win POWERBALL…..
My wife would KILL me, but I would buy my BELOVED Bruins and FIRE Jeremy Jacobs, The DICTATOR From Delaware North.
I would then SAVE the NHL from GREED and let “Sea Bass” Bring Lord Stanley BACK where he belongs!
BRING ON THE RICHES B*TCHES!!
from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,
So if you’re the PA, what do you do here?
On the one hand, players have long ago and predictably tired of Bettman -- name-calling and all -- so the opportunity to see him removed from the bargaining room seems like an offer too good to resist.
On the flip side, some people were quick to argue on Twitter Thursday night that the NHL...
