I like lines like this:
"From our standpoint, we believe that the agreement will give 30 stable, healthy, competitive teams and that the fans in all of our markets will have every opporltunity to think they have a shot at winning the cup,” Bettman said yesterday, and you can take it to the bank he’ll be saying the same thing when the board of governors ratifies the agreement today.
They give me hope for the future and make it clear that this strike wasn't just a stupid and pointless pissing contest.
... huh, apparently that was his statement after the last lock-out. Oh well, thanks for the good times Gary. Now go f**k yourself... with a cactus.
