Tom Jones at the St. Petersburg Times has a great article today to sum up what tonight would be for the Lightning franhcise...
The NHL season would have started 3 days ago but tonight... Tonight was our night. Tonight was a final time for us to focus on the accomplishment of last night.
Tonight the Tampa Bay Lightning were supposed to raise their Stanley Cup Championship Banner to the rafters and start the next phase of their existence.
But now more than ever I feel robbed. Robbed by NHL owners who aren't bargaining and have no plans to bargain. By the NHLPA who never attempted to bargain for that matter and have insisted their greed is the right way to be.
Which law enforcement division do I contact over this theft? :mad One of the biggest thrills of my life was stolen.
