These schmoes got to within 6.5 mil of each other and couldn't just split the f'n' difference?

The best part about the whole thing is Bettman's statement in the QnA part where he said:


From Canadian Press:

Quote
The NHL is planning for the 2005-06 season, and will pursue more labour talks but Bettman warned the league is going to have to look at a "completely different economic model and it is going to have to have linkage (between revenue and player salary costs)."

"The best deal that was on the table is now gone," he added.


So, now the NHL would like to explore an entirely different model...  meaning ALL the negotiating will start over from square 1.   ::)

It just re-inforces my belief that this latest round of talks was merely for "show".  I think that's the reason they didn't split the difference because the NHL never intended to move forward on this latest offer...

Stuff I do in my "selfish" spare time (:P):

- Hanging out at JediDefender.com
- work on SW custom figures
- goof around in the garage on side projects (woodworking, building junk)
- video games

There is a good chance that if the wife is out and I've got nothing left on the "Honey-Do" list, I'll probably be doing one of the things on that list...  ;)

Did anyone else's franchise give them a mushy apology?



I'll miss the Cup Playoffs too...

At the moment, all signs point to a price drop back to $5.99 for the Ep3 figures...

When you do a DPCI look-up on the Ep3 figures in Target system, they show a $5.99 price as well as that being listed at $5.99 in the early Toy Fair materials being distributed this week.  I think it's safe to say that the $7 thing is temporary... unfortuntaely we won't for sure until the day of most likely.

I am almost positive that it will be a promo item tied into April 2nd to get you to go to Target instead of TRU/Wal-Mart.  It should end up being just like the TRU Silver Figures were where you buy $x.xx amount of product and you get one for free.

No specifics yet on how much you have to spend to get one or what the limit will be though... more details should arrive shortly.

Still though, I want to watch this guy get to 802 goals...
 :P

Hmmm... Age 41 at the start of next season, with 61 goals to go to 802.  Even if he gets a few goals in during a strike shortened season, that's still about another 2 seasons he'd have to last.  :-\

Telephone Free Landslide Victory by Camper Van Beethoven



"Some people say that bowling alleys got big lanes
got big lanes, got big lanes
Some people say that bowling alleys all look the same
look the same, look the same
There's not a line that goes here that rhymes with anything
anything, anything
Had a dream last night but I forget what it was
what it was, what it was
Take the skinheads bowling, take them bowling..."

Who has he drafted that turned into a player?

It's hard to draft anyone of quality when the league takes away your picks thanks to a secret no-no deal... :-X

Of course, that doesn't really take away the blame from McHale since he was partially responsible for the whole Joe Smith thing.  Sure, McHale had to sit out for a while, but ultimately it really was the team that got punished for that because Free Agency and Trades were the only way to improve the team substantially.

Unfortunately, that's where McHale comes in again.  I don't have a problem with him as a person, but I would have much rather see him gone than Flip IMHO...

That blows.... I hope you are able to get it back.   :-\

What is is with Canada Post and Customs in Edmonton? 

Did you do something to offend them recently?   :(

SpiderMan Box Set A is in stock at Ningyoushi.com...

Spider-Man Kubrick Box Set

$40.00 plus shipping.

I'm sooooo tempted to grab this one, but it opens up the Marvel Kubrick floodgates, and I don't think I can afford to go back and grab all the rest of the Marvel's I'd need.   :-\

Scammer. Check his feedback. All the sales are for $0.01-0.02 items.

Wow.

Over the last 2-3 days, he bought up a BUNCH of $0.01-$0.20 items just to get his feedback up?  That is one crazy/complicated scammer... strange.   Hope no one falls for it.  :-\

Red metallic? Is it a Christmas ornament?

Not quite, it actually looks pretty good carded.   ;)

It is pretty blatent actually... red = Target's colors, and to a lesser extent, red = the lava theme of Ep3.  They must be trying to tie them all together methinks.

Think we've seen the last of vac-metallized figures?  Think again. 

Hasbro wasn't lying when they said that the era of silver figures was over, but apparently they haven't given up on the vacuum-metallized exclusive figure concept just yet. 

The JediDefender News Room has dug up some dirt on a planned Target exclusive for 2005 - Red Metallic Darth Vader.  No details yet on the how or when, but you can expect to add this guy to your collection sometime in 2005!  Watch for more details on this figure as we get closer to April 2nd!

That's right, I'm a nice young lady. 
That's why I promise here and now not to grab your ass if I drink at Celebration 3. 

Damn, there goes black-mail plan #11... maybe someone else can still help me and my digital camera snap some pics of J-MAC is compromising positions.   :-\
