Gary Bettman Knows Nothing About Puss

Hockey is a great sport because it has great traditions.  We've unfortunately seen  many of these traditions be raped and striped from the game by Gary Bettman.  

Just for the hell of it let's take a look at some of Bettman's accomplishments as commissioner:

- Got rid of cool conference and division names.
-Let the Whale leave Hartford and other teams leave Canada
- Put up those pussy nets to stop the puck from flying into the crowd
- Took away hockey for a year.
-Got caught at some nazi sex orgy

Now Mr. Bettman is coming after a tradition near and dear to my heart, the throwing of octopi on the ice in Detroit.  The NHL has decided that when Al Sobotka pick the octopus off the ice he can't do this trademark twirl in the air.  They've explained that substances fly off the creature and onto the ice when he does this.  If Sobotka does this, the team will suffer a $10,000 fine.  

Essentially the NHL has become the real "No Fun League."  I can't help but think this has something to do with why no one gives two shits about and it gets less time on TV than Golden Girls reruns.  

In closing, leave Hockeytown™ alone.
