Oh You Funny Funny Little League NHL

Sunday, July 01, 2007


Gary Bettman probably isn't even aware there actually is a team in Philly, let alone it's mascot isn't the same as the city's MLB team....

That kid Briere is pretty versatile....reminds me of that Lindros kid.


Briere signs 8-year $52 million deal with Phillies
(NHL.com)

UPDATE: Off Wing Opinion noticed the same mistake, but on another site. Here's E's explanation of what possibly happened...

More than likely, both NHL.com and SI.com have some sort of automatic process set up where AP wire copy is prepped and posted online without much human intervention. So when I see the same mistake made at both NHL.com and SI.com, that tells me the original mistake lies not with either of those outfits, but probably with the AP itself and the original copy that went out on the wire yesterday.
So I take it back NHL....and while you are still a funny funny league. It's not because of this.

It's still up 3 and half hours after it was posted. Wonder how long it will take?

Great news for the Flyers -- that's one league where a quick turnaround is totally possible.

I don't like the Rangers getting Drury and Gomez, though

The only thing more crazy than the title of the post that you linked, is Run saying he doesn't think the Rangers acquireing Gomez and Drury is a good thing.

Complete lunacy that is...I'll bet my bottom dollar that if the Rangers keep their core players from last year, and with these and future additions, they will at least make it to the 2nd round of the playoffs. Which for a team that just made the playoffs in a LONG TIME last year, would be one of those fabeled "moral victories".

That is a fantastic find, my friend. The NHL just isn't in a good place these days

They weren't the only ones who made the same mistake. Take a look.

Okay, I, lifelong Flyers fan, do not like when the Rangers get anybody with any appreciable level of skill.
