Quack quack, congrats on taking a commanding 3-1 lead Calijohn. I'm sure you're stoked to see that game 5 big time.

On the flipside...Now I get to watch the bandwagoners here really pour it on. Horror!

Senators gave up and coasted after that first period. To beat the Ducks you need to keep the pressure on them. Much like the Red Wings series the Senators missed an opportunity to strike a blow with Pronger out. This hurts to see the Ducks hoist the cup before my Kings. It would be the equivalent of seeing the KC Chiefs hoisting the Lombardi trophy in the 90s instead of our Broncos.

I have noticed that my tickets have almost doubled in price for game 5! They can choke so I can do it again in game 7 and Pezzy can see in person. I think i am gonna sell one ticket and go and plop my A$$ in the good seats. With my upgrade for next year, this couldnt come at a better time and bring on the bandwagon. I need to sell the other 2 tickets for next year? Anyone else going to the game? Where is that johnny come lately Mini Bronco from OC?

Geez. Did everyone hear that wiener, Brian Burke whining about the hit his player received and how it was the worst one out there.

I sure hope the Sens can pull this out because I forgot how much I can't stand that waste of skin, Burke til I saw that.

You haven't had to deal with that ass, Burke in your conference, no less division forever. You have the same hate, just under different circumstances. I'd feel differently if I was you too.

Yes, Brian Burke is the ultimate wiener.

The Isles have made some boneheaded moves (many boneheaded moves), but trading Spezza & Chara for that mope and then handing him a contract worth nearly $90 million is at the very top of that list.

Now they've got $2.2 million in dead money for the next eight years to remind them of him. Funny thing, by the time they get out from under that dead money, Rick Dipietro will still have six years left on his contract.

Dumping Yashin was a move that had to be made. The mistake was not buying him out during the summer of 2005 when they would have avoided the cap hit.

On the "I hope Francois Giguere Doesn't Sign" list....Yashin #1...Souray #2.

I'm mixed on Souray. His defensive shortcomings are worrisome (I have mild Sandis Ozolinsh flashbacks when I think about him sometimes) but his cannon from the point would be a welcome addition. I'd probably pass on him just because of the inflated market for UFA defensemen. If you're going to overpay (which you will with just about anyone in free agency), make sure you're getting the goods.

I've loathed Yashin since his days as a habitual holdout in Ottawa, so naturally I want no part of him.

Somewhere in Ottawa, there is some degree of celebration after watching Yashin fall from grace. Suppose now he gets dumped by his supermodel woman and its the perfect ending for him

NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly confirmed that the league has been in discussions with powerful film and television producer Jerry Bruckheimer about owning a franchise in Las Vegas, amid growing speculation that the NHL is on the verge of proposing expansion to Las Vegas and K.C. A group led by Bruckheimer, an avid hockey fan, is the front-runner for the Las Vegas expansion and has been in talks with NHL officials for months, sources said. Additionally, Bruckheimer has had discussions with AEG officials about that group potentially building and/or operating an NHL arena in Las Vegas. AEG President & CEO Tim Leiweke would not comment on that, but said in a statement, "Jerry is like a brother. I will be there to support him anywhere he wants to go." Bruckheimer is said to be the leader of a group of entertainment execs, including MGM Studios Chair & CEO Harry Evans Sloan, who want to own the Las Vegas team. Neither Paul Bloch, Bruckheimer's publicist, nor MGM spokesperson Jeff Pryor would comment.[

DALY: Daly, asked to confirm or deny whether the NHL had discussions with Bruckheimer about owning an NHL team in Las Vegas, said in an e-mail, "Bruckheimer is one of many people we have spoken to about their desire to own a team in Vegas." Daly added that "no decisions have been made" by the NHL BOG about expanding the league from 30 to 32 teams and that "there's no 'agreement' with anyone" to own an expansion team. But he said, "There have been many expressions of interest by a number of individuals and a number of cities," including Las Vegas and K.C., where AEG manages the city-owned Sprint Center, set to open in October. At the Stanley Cup Finals Game Four in Ottawa on Monday, there was a buzz that an announcement about the league considering expansion to Las Vegas and K.C. was imminent, hockey sources said. Asked about that, Daly wrote, "I don't know if or when there might be an announcement. We will update the Board on the expressions of interest we have received."

A HOCKEY GUY: There has been speculation for more than a year that Bruckheimer, producer of dozens of films and television shows, including the "CSI" series and spinoffs and the "Pirates of the Caribbean" films, has wanted to own an NHL franchise, and he was said to have been interested in buying the Penguins. Since October '06, when Bruckheimer attended a dinner at Staples Center with Leiweke and NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman, media outlets have reported the producer has been talking to the league about how to better market the game. However, sources said that the primary purpose of the meetings was to discuss Bruckheimer owning an NHL team in Las Vegas.

VEGAS ARENA: One sports facilities source closely tied to AEG said that the firm has a "standing offer" to Bruckheimer that AEG would develop, operate and possibly own the building in Las Vegas. Bill Rhoda, a consultant for CSL Int'l, which is managing the process for the city to select an arena developer, said AEG was one of seven developer-led teams that submitted letters of intent last Thursday to build a new downtown arena (AEG co-owns an arena developer, Tim Romani's Icon Venue Group). The others:

* Real Estate Interests, with urban planner RTKL.
* Raul Walters Properties, with architect HNTB and sports executive Kiki Vandeweghe.
* Star Development, with architect Ellerbe Becket.
* Postolos Group, led by former Rockets President George Postolos.
* Medallion Financial Corp., led by Andrew Murstein, who tried to buy the Penguins with Mark Cuban and Dan Marino in '06.
* Las Vegas Land Partners.

Others attending the May 14 pre-proposal conference in Vegas included officials from general contractors Hunt and Turner and architects HKS, EwingCole and David M. Schwarz.

TIMING: The season when a team would start play isn't known, but the MGM Grand Garden Arena, which has played host to L.A. Kings preseason games, could be available as an interim home if a new arena has not been completed. Vegas' biggest arena, the Thomas & Mack Center, does not have an ice sheet.

If they expand the NHL any further, Bettman will prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that his goal is to kill the league. There are already too many teams as it is and they want to add more? Good lord.

If they want to move an existing franchise to Vegas, I'm all for it. Further expansion and further watering down of the talent pool is idiotic.

I am with you 100%. Actually, I am still in favor of some contracting.
