My Good Bye Video

I made this video from photos of my guys I've taken over the seasons. I only used pictures I took, so that is 3 seasons worth. I'm sure I forgot some, but song length prevented any more additions. I plan on making some more videos. Note: this is NOT a good bye to this blog (yet).

Arrrghhh. Just when I had finally stopped crying! :*( But seriously, thank you for putting the video together, and for adding a few lighthearted photos in there as well. It definitely was smiling through the tears to watch it. For some reason, seeing the picture of Burmi hit me the hardest- he was the future, what could have been. Best of luck to all of OUR guys, wherever they end up, but my heart is broken. Fuck you, Bettman. Fuck you, NHL for allowing this theft to take place.

Thank you ! I know exactly what you mean about Burmi. That is OUR baby. :(

For me, most of all, fuck the Spirit. It's 100% on them. From what I'm reading, they told Bettman that they would bankrupt it, forcing the NHL to buy it. Owning 2 teams would be a disaster. They did all they could to kill hockey here. I will never set foot in that place again.

Enjoyed that even if it did make me a bit teary all over again.

Interesting info about bankrupting the team, not a bit surprising from a group that is already morally bankrupt. We can only hope an NBA lockout calls their bluff and bankrupts them for real. Then perhaps a serious buyer will be allowed to by it all at bargain prices and bring back a team, like, oh, I don't know, the Coyotes, who will no doubt be available next year?

Thank you for putting this together. It sums up how so many of us feel. Thank you for always providing a good laugh and valuable insight with every post. It has been a treat to read your blog. I am heartbroken that I will never see our boys in our jerseys again, but I wish them the best. I'll follow this roster wherever they wind up. I owe them my support, because they showed me what being passionate about hockey was all about.

Virginia, I know I commented on this vid on Facebook, but it bears repeating. I love this video. You could not have picked a better song to make me cry! But at the same time, there are so many pics that make me smile. (Like the surprised Reasoner, and of course Slater clearing pucks from the net.) I have a feeling I'll be coming back to watch this one a lot over the coming months. Thank you for putting this together.

Made me cry...a mix of "good" cry at all those great times at the arena that will never be added on to...and the "bad" cry that rips at my heart just a bit more. Can't believe it won't all be a dream (aka nightmare) by the time training camp rolls around. So much injustice by the Powers That Be. But so many, many memories of great times...and great pics. Thanks for doing that video. Right song. Excellent pics. Good guys.
