Shocking, I always thought he would be in politics , it’s always about the larger paycheck at the end of the day, unreal.

I think he just loves the limelight. He wasn't getting much of that as a cabinet secretary, and he probably found life outside his frog pond a bit of a letdown, so...

So now a hockey player can go from being a college player exploited by Charlie Baker to a pro represented by Marty Walsh. That's kind of interesting.

He's done a lot better than me or any of you in terms of accomplishments.

If he was a she and had say moved here from Seattle and been a labor leader, a state rep, mayor and a cabinet secretary, all while being a cancer survivor and a recovering alcoholic, there would be people in some neighborhoods throwing rose petals at her feet every morning about how brave this person was in life.

Instead, he had the UHub sin of being born Irish American and from Dot, therefore he must be evil.

Was his run as mayor perfect? No. The Olympic trial balloon was wrong and the Ten People on Twitter, including many, many insufferable people involved in the push against it were right.

Let's hope he works to get Bettman out the door, force a move of Phoenix to Houston and get a team in Hamilton.

And tired of it relatively quickly. If you worked in his administration, you would understand.

Because he's a centrist Democrat cultist.

I need not cite his ancestry or where he was reared.

Is he evil because he is a centrist or a democrat?

Why don't you climb down off that cross once in a while? Someone else might want to use it.

Not having any idea how the NHL works is a new frontier for you and I look forward to seeing your uninformed opinions on other sports.

Excellent job twerps.

I can picture him and remembered his name, but I don't recall at all what his schtick was. (Don't tell me, if I really want to know, there's always Youtube.)

it means to provoke an emotional response, and not to elicit calm, rational, amusing putdowns to an obviously inane comment, as here.

His father was Ichabod Bates. When they arrived at a function the host would say, "May I introduce Mister Ichabod Bates, and his son, Master Bates".

Yes, he seems to be confusing the players' association with the League office. Imagine being so thoroughly out to lunch that you thought the union controls franchise locations.

If you force Bettman out, you can help get an NHL president that guides the league to areas where the players make more money (Houston - biggest US market without a team and no income taxes) and Hamilton (rabid fan base - lots of full seats as opposed to Phoenix).

See?

Now piss off.

Hint: it's the guys on the opposite side of where Walsh will be negotiating. Walsh has about as much influence over Bettman as you or I do.

Can you provide any evidence of the claims you're making? If you can't, then you're basically admitting to spewing total B.S.

Let see how you do.

Between Marty Walsh becoming the Executive Director of NHL Players’ Association and Charlie Baker becoming the president of the NCAA, that's pretty impressive for two locals, huh?

If you're a hockey player, you've gotta understand: Zambonis are going to hit you.
