There has to be more to it than what the Winterhawks are releasing. Just for that bit alone, it's a very harsh punishment. Has to be more to this story.

In my honest opinion, this year's FTV is the most grabastic since the last lockout. Forgot to post earlier when I saw it but, EE tweeted (citing Forbes) that it's been estimated that Vinik & Co. lost $13.5MM last season. It's been my experience over the years that Forbes is a great resource for ballpark figures and in it's fairest form, educated guesses. Which is fine. I do it. A lot of folks do, as that's all we can do without access to the books.

I don't doubt that the Org had double digit losses but I've been accustomed to applying the "10%" MOE rule with Forbes figures. Minor portions of their formulas are a little too loosey goosey for my liking so, without sounding like Scott Cullen on the matter, I'll shut up.

Thinking this year's crop of FTV is closer to 15%.

Case in point, how the hell did the Turds close the $10MM FV gap on us with 3x's the debt load in 1 season? And I don't want to hear anything about them making the playoffs having to do with it either.

“After fully cooperating with the league’s investigation, we were extremely surprised at the excessive nature of the sanctions, and we don’t feel they are in line with the scope of the violations we were found to have committed,” said Johnston.
He then added, "We do thank the league for for its generosity of spirit in tentatively agreeing to cancel the planned surgical castration of all team officials and players involved in this unfortunate situation, and we sincerely hope the paperwork reflecting that cancellation is completed and approved by league officials before the scheduled surgeries are performed. That would also save the Winterhawks the considerable cost of the procedures, which is definitely appreciated since we're almost out of money after providing our captain a cell phone."

Wild goalie Harding has multiple sclerosis

That's rough.. Hopefully he can still have a full career and continue to raise awareness.

Not that right now is a time we would necessarily need to be reminded of things about the NHL that suck, like shootouts...but damn that was a nice move and definitely reminiscent of some things about the NHL that don't, like Marty and his signature moves
