CBA update: Nothing

Dec 18, 2012, 3:46 PM EDT


Yep, that’s your update. Just a couple of tweets. If they’re not going to try, neither are we.

Here’s a guy getting a soccer ball in the face:

    Soccer ball in the face is good. How about a good montage of guys getting hit in the crotch with various sports balls?

    How about all the bozos messing around with the CBA line up and get whacked in the hum dinger with a slapshot. This crap is ridiculous and I’ve had enough. I’m done with hockey.

    Someday, years from now, people from both sides of this are going to look back and say, “What the HELL were we thinking?”

    Wrong again

    Talks will resume this week for sure. They are talking about Tuesday or Wednesday, and will be working to hammer out a deal. By then the players will have completed the voting process, which will determine what card they will play next. A no vote for the disclaimer of interest will leave them in the ropes, a yes vote will push the league to get their case heard in court much sooner. This is indeed pathetic, and one has to wonder how this chapter of the NHL will be written in the history books of the soon to be 100 year league.

      You beat me by less than a minute.

    • thailer35 - Dec 18, 2012 at 4:57 PM

      It’s times like these that adding one thumbs up just doesn’t seem like enough.

  7. killerpgh - Dec 18, 2012 at 4:29 PM

    How can this be? Joey said they were gonna meet today or tomorrow.

  8. whatthepuck2012 - Dec 18, 2012 at 4:33 PM

    I don’t care for Fehr at all, but if you’re gonna copy and paste the same comment over and over, at least fix the spelling.

    I remember hearing about this “hockey” thing when I was in grade school. We studied it the same week as other mythical things such as Bigfoot and unicorns.

  10. raulduke11 - Dec 18, 2012 at 5:18 PM

    I hope the NHL never recovers from this and goes under

    “There’s an old saying in Tennessee … I know it’s in Texas, probably in Tennessee … that says, fool me once, shame on … shame on you. Fool me … you can’t get fooled again!” …

    Friends, it’s becoming pretty clear now in terms of what’s “really” going on here, eh ? :) And yet the incredible thing is the fact that these players apparently remain blind to the Judas at their helm ? At what point does one come to realize that a sinking ship is probably going to sink ? … when you start flailing about in the water yourself ? You’d think that if mere fans of the game like us are able to see what’s going down here, then so too would those who have a personal “vested” interest ? And yet they don’t, which is completely mind-boggling to me ?

    One thing for sure is that the NHL we “knew and loved” is now probably gone for good. Because regardless of whatever form the new league takes, the landscape will be vastly different, with teams disappearing and/or relocating, players changing teams en-masse, etc. I even heard talk this morning of a new cap being somewhere around 30 million ! Since we’re powerless to do anything anyways, the best policy is probably now to simply relax and acknowledge that “that which will be, will be” …

      Comrade Blomfeld, that was good. Bubba Jr.

      • zetaone - Dec 18, 2012 at 7:49 PM

        Why do you stooges all call each other comrade?

      • manchestermiracle - Dec 19, 2012 at 12:47 AM

        Because they like pretending they’re just like the dinosaurs that ran Russia into the ground. Or maybe they all plan on vacationing in Cuba this winter. They got hockey there?

      • blomfeld - Dec 19, 2012 at 8:58 AM

        is it Comrade Zetaone or “Joe Serious” ?

        I’m not sure about you friend, but I personally come here to PHT for “good times” and nothing more … just as I suspect many others do too ? Having said that however, I do have to say that in addition to the entertainment value, I’ve also found this website to be a terrific source of information, thanks to the excellent PHT writers and the input of the many and varied posters.

    If you can’t take the heat get out of the kitchen. I’m still here so throw it all at me. I can take it when I’m wrong. Lol!

    • necromerlin - Dec 18, 2012 at 6:52 PM

      I think I speak for everyone here, the issue isn’t when you are right or wrong. You claim to have ‘sources’ when it is clear you just throw crap at the wall to see what sticks. Eventually you do get something marginally right then are so pompous to quote yourself for the next to days.

      You have the credibility of Eklund and about the same success rate. Maybe you can write for HockeyBuzz?

      • blomfeld - Dec 19, 2012 at 9:05 AM

        you silly person ! … he’s constantly having fun with you guys and yet so many of you remain blind to that ? …. try taking off the “serious” hat once in a while and enjoy the ride ! :)

    • valoisvipers - Dec 19, 2012 at 12:05 AM

      Joey You stirring up the trolls again? Your kitchen is hotter than Chef Ramsey’s.Keep up the great posts!

      • blomfeld - Dec 19, 2012 at 9:12 AM

        Valoisvipers – Yes indeed friend, crank up the heat ! :) It’s funny, as Joey reminds me of a talk show guy called Phil Hendrie. Not sure if you know of him, but his talk show on the radio used to be hilarious !


        The Phil Hendrie Show is a comedy talk radio program. The show is syndicated throughout North America on Talk Radio Network. It is known for outrageous guests, the majority of whom are fictional and voiced live by the host, Phil Hendrie. Though Hendrie often explains that he is doing the voices, listeners unfamiliar with the show’s format are duped into believing that the guests on the show are real and are invited to call in to engage in conversation with the “guests”.

    I thought Joey is Eklund

  14. cspsrbums - Dec 18, 2012 at 7:21 PM

    Mark your calendars this is the beginning of the end for the NHL and the owners have it all on their shoulders.

  15. sportsfan69 - Dec 18, 2012 at 7:30 PM

    Conrade Blomfeld, this is why there is NO defections amongst the rank and file in the NHLPA.

  16. acieu - Dec 18, 2012 at 8:05 PM

    Because we are all Canadian socialists!!! Comrad!

    • zetaone - Dec 18, 2012 at 8:19 PM

      Russian communists called each other comrade, not socialists lol… HUGE difference between the two.

  17. sportsfan69 - Dec 18, 2012 at 8:35 PM


    This is a blog, take a chill pill. Oh my!!! My grandfather’s name was Conrad, which in German means courageous and friend.

    lockout update here……last week i was actually shopping at shop nhl .com….was holding a few items in the ol’ shopping cart……but when i heard the season was cancelled through end of december i emptied my shopping cart….i’m now done for this season……i’ll keep an open mind for now for shopping nhl gear next season………i also gave up ‘center ice’ after the last strike……still like hockey but watching less of it (obviously none right now!)……

    • woodstakes - Dec 19, 2012 at 12:51 AM

      Good for you.. the best way to have a voice to these guys is with your wallet. I for one will not go to a game or purchase any NHL merchandise for as long as the lockout lasts. So if we lose a full year then I will not be attending or purchasing anything for one full calendar year. I’m not going to stand on my soapbox and say I will not watch, because I will. But, I can muster up enough balls to not spend money out of my pocket on the NHL for however long they stay locked out. My local team is on a sports station that I already pay for even when the NHL is not in season. So I guess they will get my money on the fact that I’ll be viewing games, however the hell that works. But, I will not open my wallet again until the time served as it were is done.

      I guess in the grand scheme of things I won’t make any difference. But, if all the other hardcore fans did the same thing, this may not happen EVER again. They would bend over backwards to get us back after one month, just one month of it. But, in the end a very high percentage of fans will come back, although I do not believe it will be as fast as it was post ’04-’05, but they will. I don’t really blame them, I understand, because I will WANT to be right there with them. But, I vowed I would not as well as my wife and the friends that we get our season tickets with.

  19. matt8204 - Dec 18, 2012 at 10:24 PM

    And yet life goes on…imagine that. You’re not indespensible, guys. People can, will and in some cases have moved on. Carry on with your childish games…

  20. sharksfan97 - Dec 18, 2012 at 11:47 PM

    Hockey’s garbage. I’m done with the sport. Thank goodness for this lockout actually, it rekindled my love of the NFL.
