I want the NHL and the players to honor the game.
Ice hockey is a great, great sport. But it doesn't reach its potential very often these days. The elite talent is mixed with mediocre guys who belong in the AHL because there are too many teams. They've jacked the regular season point getting system with loser points, no ties, and the laughable shootout. Players hit free agency about 5 yrs too soon. This alone destroys real team building and chemistry. Guaranteed contracts are a joke. You can't body check guys like the old days without getting suspended. Hip checks are out.
The glow puck idea made it clear that the NHL would compromise the integrity of the game. It's gone down and down from there (and probably from before).
It's not about the game played the right way. It's about making a fun night out for the family win or lose. Well...I hope they have fun at a game no one including the players care much about.
