Bingo. I LIKE the NHL the way it is. I don't want to "open up the ice"; I like that hockey is a gritty, hard fought game.

Plus, it's not as if we haven't had two 60 goal scorers in the past four years. When was the last time we'd had one? The game isn't exactly cruel to the skill players. The playoffs are tighter, especially this year. That's one of the greatest things about our sport; the playoffs actually are a different brand of play. Can't say the same of any of the other sports, IMO.
