Patrick Marleau has an interesting conspiracy theory

We’ve heard plenty of talk from the players and the owners about the lockout, but the one thing we’ve been lacking is a real good conspiracy theory. Lucky for us, Patrick Marleau came up with a good one.

Marleau, via text, told Josh Rimer of that the owners had a plan to eliminate games well ahead of the lockout.

“The league had these games canceled already in the summer. They are just releasing that info now,” Marleau said.

Well that’s news to everyone and just adds more nasty rhetoric to the ongoing war of words between the two sides. Fact is, Marleau’s been a staunch critic of the owners from the outset and has been at least trying to keep an open mind about things as they go along.

With things taking a turn for the worse in the past couple days, however, being optimistic is a lot more difficult to do.

      Oh! Wait! That means I’m Patrick Marleau. This is becoming as complicated as the movie Inception…. Who am I?

    Marleau is right. He’s hardly the first or only player to think along these lines.

    • polegojim - Oct 27, 2012 at 11:30 PM

      Marleau is right that others players have thought along those lines…

      Which does not make Marleau right about his ‘theory’.

      Also… of similar value and seriousness… Marleau actually IS ELVIS!

    I’m on pins and needles waiting to hear what he thinks about the Apollo mission.

      And everyone likely knows that in their heart …

      – identical lunar backdrop from frame to frame, despite varying angles ?
      – inconsistent shadow lines throughout various frames ?
      – comical flag waving motion where there is supposedly no atmosphere ?
      – coke can seen on the ground in several frame, clearly suggesting a sound stage?
      – foot prints clearly seen on the ground, yet no impact from the 8 ton lunar module ?
      – Stanley Kubrick hired on to the project while simultaneously making 2001 Space Odyssey ?

      And on and on it goes. I personally believe that man has never left the Earth’s orbit. And I believe that the impetus for staging the fake moon landings back then in the summer of ’69 should be clearly obvious for all to see today. And yet so many people don’t ? Why is that ? Well the reason for that I would submit is because sometimes people simply don’t want to know the truth. After all, the truth can at times be unpleasant, it can be depressing, it can be even damaging. The adage that “ignorance is bliss” is sometimes a far more palatable and easier way for a person to think. As Jack Nicholson famously said … “You can’t handle the truth !”.

      So as far as Marleau goes with his suspicion that this impasse may have been planned in advance ? … it’s like “HELLO” people ! This thing “stank to high heaven” from the start in terms of it being a “charade” or a “caper” on the part of Bettman and company. And I swear to God people, you just watch what transpires now over the coming days ! :)

        OK, will someone please explain why President Johnson’s wife company, Seapan, was allowed to get the exclusive contract to ship all the military supplies to Vietnam and the public never knew about.? Over $100 million dollars. Was it a cover up by the Congressional Arms committee, and the Pentagon together or was it an overseas shell corporation ? Or was it………………… don’t say it, people have disappeared …………………… for over 40 years. the “Divison” lives

        Badintent – While I’m not aware of that particular case friend, I would contend that things “do” happen for a reason, more often than not …

    I am so over the players and fehr.

    • polegojim - Oct 27, 2012 at 11:30 PM

      Amen… Fehr is a cancer to the process… I’ll say it 100 times.

    I believe that bettman is head of the free masons. And that he is operating with bigfoot and the chupacabra to rid the russian pig-dogs from our sacred north american lands.

    • blomfeld - Oct 27, 2012 at 11:26 PM

      Capsfan19 – With all kidding aside friend, there’s no reason why Gary can’t feasibly be a member of a masonic lodge somewhere ? And if he is then so what ? There’s no big deal with that and besides, who really cares ? Things like “Bigfoot” and the “Loch Ness Monster” are pure silliness and nothing more. However the Bilderberg Group and their proxies such as Goldman Sachs and others, is as real as the food we eat or the air we breathe.

      • badintent - Oct 28, 2012 at 12:38 AM

        We have been eating the gruel from the Biderberg Group for years, They meet every summer in a little campsite/cabintown north of Sonoma and people that try to get close to look at it disappear.

      • blomfeld - Oct 28, 2012 at 12:47 AM

        The Bilderberg Group, Bilderberg conference, or Bilderberg Club is an annual, unofficial “invitation-only” conference of approximately 120 to 140 guests from North America and Western Europe, most of whom are people of influence. About one-third are from government and politics, and two-thirds from finance, industry, labor, education and communications. Meetings are closed to the public.

        Friend … the bottom line is that we will “all” go to extreme lengths to protect that which we value … be that family, friends, values, faith, power or money

    • polegojim - Oct 27, 2012 at 11:31 PM

      NO! Bettman IS Jimmy Hoffa.

      • blomfeld - Oct 28, 2012 at 12:20 AM

        I agree that’s possible … just as I agree it’s possible that one “magical” bullet was responsible for “7 x entry wounds” to both Messrs Kennedy and Connally in Dealey Plaza on Nov 22nd, 1963 …

      • polegojim - Oct 28, 2012 at 11:21 AM

        … and that the bank bailouts were intended to ‘stimulate the economy’
        … and that the middle class will be fine
        … and that George W actually ran the White House
        … and that Bill Clinton did not inhale

      • id4joey - Oct 28, 2012 at 12:52 PM

        and I believe that Goldman Sachs is not the mafia of the financial markets worldwide…. Not!

  6. stakex - Oct 27, 2012 at 10:44 PM

    I think the players are starting to get board….

  7. yourrealitybites - Oct 27, 2012 at 11:40 PM

    You are right Patrick. Walmarts all over need night managers, and you douche bags are potentially qualified. Or not. Get a clue, and be glad you can be a millionaire playing a child’s game.
