This is a metaphor for the CBA talks, I know it.
Pacioretty will stay a Hab for another 6 years, of which I will like him for about 2 weeks in 2014. The rest of the time he's a jerk and he scores too much. Yes, this is now 2-day-old news. Speaking of which, here's my new favorite Lyndon Byers quote:
What are you, calling me a goon? Just because I have 830 penalty minutes in 200 games? Just because I - C'mon. I've got 29 goals. I've got 2 goals this year. Don't pressure me.
Classic Milbury right there.
