Department of redundancy department....

Te·di·ous adj.
Pronunciation of "tedious" (td-s)

1. Tiresome by reason of length, slowness, or dullness; boring.
2. Obsolete. Moving or progressing very slowly.

Driven by my unbridled anticpation of Gary Bettman's comments on the recent "negotiations", I felt obligated to post this as soon as humanly possible:
"They (NHLPA representatives) went back to Toronto," said Bettman, "But we left it open (for more talks)...If this is going to be an ideological question over the cap, then it is not going to be," he told It's his (NHLPA Executive Director Bob Goodenow) call...We won't compromise on the cap."
Wait a second, that sounds vaguely familiar. Oh that's right, it's on the NHL's 'Greatest Hits and Expressions of Love' album, which is now available in most living rooms. The lyrics quoted above are from the wildly overplayed tune, "The Stance of Doom (screw you non-conformers)". Oddly enough, the same song appears - with the same title - on the recent NHLPA's release of the "Best of Bob and His Idiotic Friends" album.

Proceeds from each organization's albums are reportedly headed directly into the "Owner's for saving us from ourselves" and the "Poor players need to eat too" funds. So please, don't hold back. Donate generously.
