My favorite line: "The NHL game as played in the post-season last spring was, for the most part, ghastly, and it will return in the same form at the end of this lockout, a ping-pong game in which shot-blocking is more valued than skill and imagination."

Part of the new CBA needs to get the game back to BEING FUN TO WATCH. NHL needs fans, and more media coverage.. and trying to watch and enjoy the the game, in it's current state, is impossible.

Nothing like having stars with playmaking talent given 4 square feet of ice to work on.

DENIS SAVARD, WHERE ARE YOU???
Easy solution: SHRINK THE PADS! EVERYONE'S PADS!

The game was hard fought and tough on players but there was less hitting cheapishly, goalies were required to have TALENT (though it hurts Nilsson and Poulin a bit) and you just couldn't trap if you were afraid of being hit. The tougher teams wore down such stupid hockey.

Just bring back the 1970's regulations. Maybe keep the helmet rules (though as a purist, I'd love to see the old school game in its entirety).
