Hockey Hilarity: Pre-Labor-Day-Post-Lockout-Laughers

Friday funnies brought to you straight from hockey’s own players and media personnel. We’ll be mucking it up every week right here, examining puck ups, puns, tweets, and more! Before the long Labor Day weekend, everyone knows that the NHL and NHLPA met and talked and things didn’t go so well. The media, and some bloggers, and some regular folks, made some downright hysterical comments via Twitter, and despite having just 140 characters, they did me in on a few. Hopefully you’ll enjoy as these were the best of the bunch:                     …
