What Really Grinds My Gears

I think it's time to introduce a new segment here at SSH. For those of you out there who watch Family Guy you will get this one, and hopefully get a chuckle out of it. Of course I am being completely serious, but take it as you will.

You know what really grinds my gears? The fact that Jim Balsillie is trying to take the Coyotes out of Phoenix before the 2009-2010 season. Jim listen, the team has hardcore fans, maybe not as many as your "major hockey market" club, but they do. If I were the judge I would do this. Award the team to Jim, but keep them in Phoenix for one more season. If the team generates profit, i.e. makes the playoffs, the team stays in Phoenix. If the team fails to make any profit this year then Balsillie is free to do what he wants with the team. I know some fans may not like that, but the guy is bidding way more then the team is worth. If he has the money, he should get the team. At the same time, Phoenix should get a fighting chance.

You know what really grinds my gears? FSU's crappy time management in the big FSU vs UM game last night. I know this isn't a hockey topic, but come on. You guys sit there and waste ten+ seconds switching players? Bad move, and it showed.

You know what really grinds my gears? Knowing that training camp starts soon and the Panthers will be spending theirs in Canada...for the next three seasons. Why exactly build the Incredible Ice expansion now when the boys will be spending their Septembers in Canada?

You know what really grinds my gears? Direct TV cutting Versus from their channel lineup. I personally have Comcast, but friends who have Direct TV will be suffering, and that sucks. The NHL better get on this one fast, or their ratings are going to suffer.

I think that will do it for now. If you have any comments or questions send them to or post them on SSH's facebook page.
