The Morning Skate for Tuesday, May 19th

Bullet points for what you missed while dreaming of a repaired Hubble telescope...
  • Here's the good news for the Whalers - they managed to pretty much shut down Sid the Kid. The bad news is that the Pens have Miro Satan. Wait, what? Yes, apparently he's alive and scoring goals, and the Pens take Game 1, 3-2. Props to both goalies too, and Pittsburgh's knees;
  • St. Patrick is denying he got an offer to coach the Avs;
  • Things could get juicy in bankruptcy court today, as there will be a hearing on the whole Phoenix ownership thingy. Aren't you happy you have four lawyers to sort this out for you? The NBA, NFL, and MLB have thrown their support behind the NHL, and filed court briefs to that effect. Big fucking surprise.
Hawks-Wings back at it tonight.

Good call on the Pen's knees.

the nfl- where a team slips away in moving vans during the night; the nba- where a 30-year-old franchise in seattle gets hijacked to K.C.; mlb- wait, isn't there a team formerly known as the Expos playing to empty seats in D.C............. all rounded up by GB to act as shills........ no matter the outcome, the slimeball little asshole should be GONZO!!

If Balsillie wanted to move the "Yotes to Las Vegas or KC, the NHL and those other sports cartels would be helping him pack the U-Haul & springing for the beer & pizza.

And the slime keeps on oozin'.

Yeah the Fucking NBA (formerly Bettman anarchy) MLB and NFL.. Wow those are some classy organizations based on the foundations of greed and more greed, with some steroid use (woops wait no one does steroids in MLB... see congressional testimony for that!) The ref gambling fiasco in the NBA (oh and MJ..yeah I'll go into retirement for a few years to calm everyone down and not collapse the league due to my questionable dealings). Oh and then there is the NFL (enough said?) Bettman sure knows who to hang with. Having those three organizations on your side is like having Saddam and his 2 sons backing you up in a bar brawl....That piss ant little fuck Bettman...someone needs to drop kick his fucking pint sized little 5 ft 4 ass over to Europe..don't they have a couple of leagues over there that need fucking up? Bettman's fuck ups can carry in the U.S. where 75% of the quote, "Fans" don't know the difference between a hockey puck and Badminton Bird! So if you grow to 7 the number of Canadian teams well look out cause they might just form a league of their own some day and the Canadian Fans actually know Bettman bullshit from Seagull shit.

Mind you I would love to see a team back in Winnipeg. GO JETS!

Ah fuck it all its Tuesday morning and i have a wicked 3 day hangover..that's what happens when the weather is shit.

Honestly, the NHL becomes more and more of a bush league with every passing day.

Between the fixed reffing according to Buttman's wishes (yeah, I said it), the incessant "Like us, PLEASE like us" pimping south of the border and the fact that a man who was probably shorter than Napoleon in ALL ways is tanking MY FUCKING SPORT because he's trying to grow a pair...

... I'd cry if my tear ducts hadn't been welded shut when I was called to the Bar.

At least the Habs have their shit together, right?
What?

FUCK.

Pass the tequila, it's going to be a long summer.

I couldn't get past the first paragraph of that TSN article about the 3 "BIG" leagues backing the NHL. But I skimmed to the end where it mentions Stevey Y supporting another team in Ontario.

I think one Steve Yzerman vote far outweighs the self-satisfying business interests of 3 majorly fucked up American sports!

Hey, the Prez, though not allowed to use his BB, is a big fan of Blackberry AND RIMshots (b-ball), plus could tell the American public he has aided in relocating a bankrupt business from the U.S. to Canada, thus saving hundres of millions of American tax dollars. And 98% of Americans knowing nothing of hockey would be "YEAH, GO BARRACK! Stick it to those stupid Canadians! Friggin' hosers! WOO, YEAH, GO NASCAR!"

Why doesn't Gary Bettman work for a typically more American sport like Nascar or Competitive Eating?
