“Certainly they have a right to ask for anything they want, but if the players had any brains, they wouldn’t accept it.  But you have to start somewhere.”

“They (owners) have to sell this game,“not destroy it.”

-Ted Lindsay on the CBA negotiations.  More on the CBA talks from the AP at the Detroit Free Press.

Ha! I like Ted.

Wonder what Terrible Ted thinks of Bettman with respect to his quote above.

They better stop posturing and get the details nailed down for an agreement.  If they have another lockout, work stoppage, whatever they call it - the NHL is going to be in trouble—they already are competing with the NFL, College Football is getting bigger in the States, MLB is more competitive with the extra wild cards, & NBA will soon be starting—that’s a lot of competition.  They are just getting established with a new TV deal on the Versus/NBC—- ticket prices are going up—& economic times are tough—if a consumer is having to make choices,—-not seeing any NHL on tv or live, might be the easiest thing to give up.
