f**k YOU BETTMAN

this lockout has to be the stupidest thing I've seen a commish do....

I don't understand how the NHL making more money than ever = owners want players to take a pay cut.y
sharks owners said they lost 15 mill last season

I don't believe the numbers owners provide.

Also, the owner of the Sharks has seen their value increase by about $50million in the span of 10 years.

The Sharks lost reportedly $6.2million, but according to Forbes.com they just make a capital call and call in investments that investors made but have not yet paid. So them "losing" money is a pretty skeptical thing.

3 of our top six defensemen are hurt

and

we have no cap space to sign 9 players
If Burns is unable to play at the start of the season (pending a new CBA agreement), the Sharks will have a big hole to fill on their back end. Jason Demers is already sidelined until at least the beginning of February with a broken wrist, according to his agent, while Justin Braun has been recovering from a hand injury. Braun should be "ready to play" from the outset if the season gets going, his agent said recently.

burns might be out for the season

Our only hope would be that Braun will have made huge strides from last season (he was on the upswing at least) and would step huge. Our D-pairing would be this at this point.. without Burns..

Murray-Boyle
Vlasic-Demers
Braun-Stewart
The other good news is that James Sheppard looks healthy. 21 points in 33 games and plus-1 rating. I wonder if they're going to use Tim Kennedy as the new Torrey Mitchell and pull him from Worcester? He has 30 points in 31 games.

So.. what are our starting lines?

Marleau-Thornton-Pavelski
Clowe-Couture-Havlat
Burish-Desjardins-Wingels
Galiardi-Sheppard-Handzus?

Not sure how I feel about a 48 game season. It beats have no season but things feel too rushed.
