Chaos was what killed the dinosaurs, darling.

26 Aug

Donald Fehr is the new head of the NHLPA.  A lot of what I write is fluff, but I’m just trying to grasp the entirety of this situation.  I don’t pay too much attention to what goes on in the Player’s Association, but I know that it’s full of chaos.

Really, the NHLPA is like a high school.  People lie and cheat and stab each other in the back.  Information is cycled round and round so many times that we can’t tell fact from fiction.  Rumors galore.  It’s a really effed up part of the league.

The NHLPA hasn’t had a leader for about a year, ever since Paul Kelley was ousted.  When he ran things, there was a lot of lying and misinterpretation and snobby jerks who didn’t respect his authority.  Not really an ideal situation, if you ask me.

I don’t know a lot about what’s going on there, but I do know that another lockout is entirely possible.  I really, really, really, really, really don’t want to see another lockout, but unless the PA pulls their shit together, we might just see one.  It won’t even completely be Kovalchuk’s fault, contrary to popular belief.

Stick that into your pipe and smoke it.

Random Thoughts- August 6

1. The hockey gods can be cruel, heartless bitches.

How dare they put Mike Modano’s presser on the same day as the Stars’ Raising the Cup!  That’s not funny, guys.

Speaking of which:

Ha.

2. Gaga’s new single is “Dance in the Dark.”

I really adore this song with its meaning and the spoken word part in the middle.  They say that this could be the next “Vogue,” but I digress.  Lady Gaga is no second coming of Madonna.  She’s the first coming of Lady Gaga.

3. On the subject of Gaga…

Her new remix album, cleverly titled The Remix, is excellent.  I like the “Alejandro” Sound of Arrows remix and the “Dance in the Dark” Monarchy Stylites remix the best.

Have a nice Friday.
