I HAVE HAD IT!!!
GARY BETTMAN HAS RUINED THE NHL...
HEY GARY! NO ONE IN ARIZONA PLAYS HOCKEY!! WHY DO THEY HAVE A TEAM!
HEY GARY PEOPLE IN NASHVILLE LIKE NASCAR COUNTRY MUSIC, AND COLLEGE FOOTBALL!
HEY GARY YOU HAVE A TEAM NAMED AFTER A FRIGGEN DISNEY MOVIE!!!!
WHAT ARE YOU DOING!!!!!
HERE IS HOW YOU BEGIN TO RESTORE THE LEAGUE FORMERLY KNOWN AS THE NHL!!!
ONE, BRING BACK THE WINNIPEG JETS, AND THE QUEBEC NORDIQUES. PEOPLE IN CANADA LOVE HOCKEY, THEY'LL GO TO THE GAMES!
(wait let me turn off caps lock, my fingers are getting tired from all of this yelling)
([Deep breathe)] ok..
Like I was saying... It's a joke every time I see a match-up like the Phoenix Coyotes take on the Florida Panthers, it irks me because no one in those towns care about hockey. For a sport to work it has to be sold in a market where there is a passion for it. The NHL's most passionate markets are in the Northern parts of the United States and in Canada. The Toronto Maple Leafs havn't won a cup in years where hockey is religion. The Anaheim Ducks won the Cup two years ago, and no one knows who they are...NOR should they!! How many frozen ponds are in Southern California!!?!?!?! GOD DAMN YOU GARY (chair being thrown).
YES I KNOW GARY YOU WERE TRYING TO MARKET THE SPORT TO ALL PEOPLE IN ALL MARKETS!! WELL IT DIDN'T WORK, YET YOU DID EVERYTHING YOU COULD WHEN THE PREDATORS WANTED TO MOVE TO WINNIPEG TO KEEP THEM IN NASHVILLE!
(ok i ll stop yelling)
I am sure all 10 fans in Nashville were glad you screwed over the thousands of NHL fans in Winnipeg!!!
Now what do I care, I am a Flyers fan by birth?
It means so much more to see the Flyers beat a team like Montreal with a huge fan base, than beating a team like the Tampa Bay Lighting in the playoff where their fans could care less. Maybe I am a little sick in the fact that I take pride in Fan Bases disappointment, but screw it and screw you Gary Bettman you ruined hockey.
