 ...We want to play, we're the ones who are doing the show in the NHL, but Bettman thinks it makes him. It is unfortunate that the NHL have such a guy. It's a shame for the entire hockey world. Treats us like animals....

TheFreak, I checked with a buddy who is fluent in Czech, the animal quote is translated properly.

Not sure how many animals there are in the world that get paid millions to play a kids game.

I wish the players would just shut their mouths. I was on their side from the beginning but with each passing quote, I’m starting to like the owners more and more.

I heard that the chimp that played “Cheeta” in all those Tarzan movies made millions, but blew it all on bananas and bonobo tail (and they don’t have the type used for swinging from trees if you knwo what I mean).

Pretty much every time a player cracks their teeth on this issue they sound like complete idiots.

I’d think the idiot quotient has been fairly equivalent, you have several playeys that have said some dumb things (not Chelios or Roenick dumb) and some have been on point. The owners with Jimmy D having been the only one to voice an opinion in public have been batting 1.000 on the stupidity scale. If you believe Jeremy Jacobs said Bettman works for the players as well as the owners than they are 2-0 on the dumb scale.
