NHL Anti-Thread: Bad Business Decision Aggregator

Recommended Posts

I think you're assuming there are a bunch of those kinds of lefty people watching hockey. Maybe if they sold scarves.

Did the arbitrator consider Slava Voynov as a comparable? That's at... 250 games or so, and counting? ?

Probably the right thing to do would have been to ask the arbitrator to knock two games off, now don't say we never had your back, in the future try not to get drunk and beat your wife.

Somehow the NHL did not schedule a single game yesterday, a Friday night. Were they superstitious about scheduling games on Friday the 13th? That's no excuse, it was the 12th.

Local radio brought this up, and someone suggested it was to highlight the beginning of the college hockey season. Doesn't seem like something the NHL would do, but neither does having every single team inactive on a Friday night.

5. Attendance woes

Only like 8,800 people showed up for the Islanders’ opener in Brooklyn, but isn’t it so so so interesting that no one in Canada is saying like “We gotta move them to Quebec City yesterday!”

I know they have that new arena deal now but even before they did that was never talked about and I bet it has something to do with the Mason-Dixon line. Just a thought.

 

There were literally busloads of Nordiques fans at Islanders games who were saying that, but never let anything stop you from sucking up to nerds on Twitter who like the Hurricanes and Stars and think they're dril.

I have a Blue Jackets scarf that I love to sport, but I only wear it when it's cold because it's a scarf and who wants a hot wool thing on your neck when it's still in the 80's on opening night of the season?

The Hurricanes won a few games to start the season and all the Twitter nerds were like "oh my god, hockey is fun again," fun in hockey apparently being thwacking shots from anywhere like an intermission shoot-the-puck contest gone wrong. Tell Raleigh about the fun, though! They didn't seem to get the memo yet!

Putting your feet up on the seat in front of you is fun.

Former Islanders owner Charles Wang died. What I'll remember most about him aside from trying to get a new arena in Nassau and failing is that he once did an interview on MSG, and while I expected him to sound like an elderly Chinese immigrant, he actually sounded like Woody Allen, and it was really funny. Anyway, uh, it's sad that he died and not the guy who pretended to live in a model home.
