First prize is pride. Second prize is a little less pride.
I'll get the ball rolling with:
"I'm sorry the shaft of your goal stick is getting cold. How can I help?"
Wait! Sorry! One more! Bettman ridicule is one thing I enjoy about him. Bettman: "I don't know what this 'goalie interference' of which you speak of is real. Is it like this? *flails arms* Or like this? *standing with his butt out* Jimmy: "Neither." Bettman: "I beg to differ!"
"Oh my g-string! This place is big enough for TWO Winter Classics! Let's call the Pens and the Caps right now!"
Wait! Let me try another! Jimmy: "So if I get hit by a guy in my crease and they get a goal it counts?" Bettman: " What do I look like to you? A hobbit with a huge pocketbook and extreme bias towards all things good and holy? Suck it up, goalie."
"all these empty stands reminded me of something i was going to ask you: interested in buying the coyotes?"
Everyone around here, keeps talking about some sort of maze. Have you seen it? You know me Jimmy, I'm a problem solver?!
Call me crazy, I think Phoenix fans would've filled this place up. I mean does anyone really care about Original 6 rivals anyway?
"Come on, Howard. I know your team is leading in points, but I made some bad deals with some bad people and I'm afraid I won't be able to do your team any favors heading into the playoffs. Please leave my wife outta this."
So you are telling me, Jimmie, that you want Larry Chatman and his wife to get free ticketsin the front row for both of the games associated with the 2013 Winter Classic.... that seems resonable
"I mean, she said I could either have a luxurious life and all the glory I could ever dream of, or one more night between the sheets with Sidney Crosby. And I'm like, 'no brainer,' amiright?"
