Even the dead hate the NHL lockout.:
While I may have lost my passion for the sport, this reminds me that many people have not.

Bettman and Goodenow, attacked by the dead...so has there been a lot of talk similar to the part in his obit where he says Gretzky should be running the show... putting it in the obituary, now that is a fan.

May the good lord keep him and take care of him between now and the next world, and may there be hockey at 7:30 on Saturday night whenever he gets there.

Well, it's kind of funny for the rest of us - but sad to see a man's last days spent hurling vitirol at people who clearly do not give a shit. I guess hockey does matter.

And he's a Leaf fan turned Sens fan. Bless your soul, Archie. So everyone's saying "season over" and the rumours site Samsonov linked yesterday is saying the opposite...the players are about to cave. Don't do it, Trevor! Fuck Bettman and his band of charlatans. I still believe strongly that a salary cap is a terrible idea, and an unnecessary one, too. ARGH. Anyway...11th hour is upon us.

This reminds me of the woman whose obituary included the sentiment that she believed President Bush was a whistle-ass. It is sad that the guy had to die during a labor dispute. I want to die peacefully in my sleep like my grandfather, not screaming in terror like the passengers in the other car.
