thanks for the info Thunderstruck, but obviously you were not in the bar and thus could not see the little dog who was.

That's where I am at this point. It's callous and I sound like a bandwagoner but I have no problems leaving this team behind until the FUCKING MANIACS in charge are all gone. I'm not going to sit here and try and talk myself into "oh, trading Vinny wouldn't be so bad!" Not happening. It would be an absolute fiasco and a debacle that would destroy the fan base and might kill the franchise altogether.

Again, for emphasis: fucking maniacs.

And keeping Vinny and that huge contract makes this team better HOW.

Where are the DEEP POCKETS,most said $$$$ was No Problem.

BTW,Just what was the purpose of the trip to NY,What changed ?

The only thing I see they did was to embarrass themselfs,the team,and it's fan's.

SNAFU,You think?

My understanding is that Davidson only has anything to do with the team if they fail to make financial obligations. Balsillie could buy the team from OK (the owner as of this point, not PSE), and that should be the end of it. Of course, Bettman would never allow the sale to go through so it's a moot point.

This really fucking sucks, I wouldn't hand OK & LB the keys to my car let alone an NHL franchise. It really makes me angry that the player that they're probably going to ship off for a bag of pucks represents EVERYTHING that these jackasses are NOT.

I agree with Texas, if the die-hard fans on BP withdraw their support after these maniacs destroy the franchise this week, who's going to watch or care? I'm sure as sh!t not going to be flying down to Tampa and spend hundreds on tickets to watch a bare-bones roster get flogged all over the since in the company of mostly bandwagon crapitals fans again.

Right, the thing about it is if the team was run well and there was some credibility with the ownership, you could almost understand a Vinny trade....You could just say, hey, the economy killed us...This will help in the long run...But now, it just seems like a stupid, desperate, unthinking decision by people with no credibility..
