It should be a fun and lively discussion. If you want to participate or join in on the lockout therapy session, the Spreecast begins below at 9pm.
wow. because of the (latest) lockout, hockeyrodent.com and hockeybird.com both hung it up after all of these years as great rangers blogs. they're done. they're sick and tired of it.
@IcyCup I went to their blogs, I don't see an announcement. Where did you hear that?
@KevinDeLury rodent literally turned out the lights on his site.
"And now another lockout? This is where I draw the line. As long as I had a jones for hockey, Gary Bettman had control over my happiness. He is the dealer. Well, today is the first day of the rest of my life. And today is when I wrest control of my happiness back from that asshat. I hereby declare my emancipation. Tally: Fourteen years and 50,000column-inches, people. You've just read the final one."
bird is talking politics and not hockey anymore.
"So the NHL BOG declares a lockout, the second one in less than a decade and they expect me to come back with bells on when the finally fix it. BULLSHIT.The Rodent has announced his exit and I have publicly stated many times that i would write about politics and abandon the NHL after so many years of covering the NHL on Hockeybird.They think we're kidding.They think we'll be back.Think again.I'm now going to publish my thoughts on the upcoming election, the current state of politics and my thoughts on the day to day stuff that affects politics.But before I do I want to make one last NHL comment.I want to thank Mr. Bettman for fucking up my 50th birthday. Nice going asshole."
@IcyCup I closed down shop also. They'll be back.
