Boston Bruins (Photo credit: Wikipedia) 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. Joe Haggerty; 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. The Winnipeg Jets have since denied the story but Haggerty is standing by his story that he posted earlier today over on CSNNE. “I was disappointed to learn today of a report which claimed an exchange took place between an Alternate Governor of the Winnipeg Jets and Jeremy Jacobs of the Boston Bruins at a recent NHL Board of Governors meeting. I was present throughout all BOG proceedings and can categorically state that no such exchange between Mr. Jacobs and either one of our Alternate Governors - Patrick Phillips or Kevin Cheveldayoff - ever took place. Any suggestion otherwise is completely false.” Hum, it seems like both sides are starting to sound like a bunch of squabbling kids -- I just want this thing to be over. I also don't like the fact that every 5-7 years we're going to have to lose parts if not a whole season because the two sides can't come to an agreement on the collective barginning agreement.  From everything that I have read lately, it does appear that some of the blame for the lockout lies at the feet of Jeremy Jacobs, which makes no sense to me because he is one of the haves.
