You Have GOT to Be Kidding Me

by Anne

Vinny Lecavalier signed a freakin' joke of an extension today. It was so ridiculous that when I woke up from my nap just now, I honestly thought I was still sleeping.

The owners of the Bolts have got to be out of their ever-loving minds. I understand that Vinny is an excellent player, there's no question about his deserving of a contract to reflect those talents. However, I'm sure that this is not the right move. ELEVEN YEARS? Not that many players make it to 39 in the NHL. To assume that he will is foolish. They say that its ok because it tapers off toward the end, should he decide to retire. Well, ain't that grand? Contracts like this are what's going to send us into another lockout.

These owners will either go down in history as the men who made the Bolts dynasty or go down in history as the biggest disaster in major professional sports. How can they possibly be under the cap at this point? If they are, they are financial geniuses.

I get the feeling Jay Feaster is a reasonable man and couldn't endorse this deal, among others, so he left the organization.

Why yes, I am crabby after my nap, why do you ask?
