First world problems.



To be serious though if this was the biggest thing the nhl had to worry about the league would be in a great position.

yeah, because the OP clearly said this is the "biggest thing the nhl has to worry about right now"...

They should replace the netting with bungie cord ropes and then the goalie has to keep the puck in the net or else its 2 goals instead of 1.

Good point, I have noticed pucks bouncing out consistently this year. Small issue but slightly looser mesh would be nice. I like being able to see the twine bulge on a goal.

I love watching the puck fire out of the net after a hard shot.

To those saying they love seeing the goalie dog the puck out, I don't think any NHL goalie does. If they do its because they want to fire it down the ice or at your head. I've noticed that some pucks do just come right back out but I've never noticed this to be a problem or ever seen the ref to a goal review because of it.

Or if a player can shoot it in the net and have it bounce back across the ice into the other goal, it counts as 3.

Interesting thing to talk about actually. In some arenas the nets' meshes are strung tighter and some arenas have it looser. Like, I remember going to the Prudential Center and it wasn't extremely tight, but then going to Madison Square Garden, the nets were almost saggy. Then at the First Niagara Center, the nets are pretty sling shotty. Interesting but insignificant.

Now that I think of it, the speed of the game is much too fast. All that speed, board clattering during hits, and ice spraying when they stop is very distracting.

Players should walk on the ice instead of gliding or sprinting.

The red light behind the net is too bright. Its distracting.

The ice is too white. Its distracting.

If you've played hockey you'd know loose netting sucks. The puck always gets stuck on the side and behind on the net. Thats the reason its tight.

I once saw (no joke) a player, Strazzabosco or Bench, shoot the puck so hard it went in the goal, then all the way across the ice into the other goal, and believe it or not, the puck came all the way out to the blue line! He got credited for two goals on the play. Incredible.

I'll file this under "stuff that didn't bother me until I went on the internet and now I notice it and it's annoying".

I have played hockey all my life and the only time a puck would ever get stuck inside a net is in a freak circumstance or if the net is defective.

Pucks shouldn't be rocketing out of nets the way they are this season. I actually enjoy seeing a goal get scored, not relying on the announcers to tell me that a goal has been scored while the puck is 15 feet away from the net.

Funny coz I was watching highlights yesterday and noticed how little the net moved. Doesn't bother me though. The puck doesn't get stuck on the outside as much as in "the old days".

Mikko Koivu scored a goal from the high slot tonight, puck bounced off the net and out, and St. Louis skated the puck the other way. No one knew it went in!

The mesh is tight so the puck doesn't get stuck on back when play is behind net, duh, it serves a purpose.

Well, I'm just glad to know that some of the people I've been wasting energy arguing about hockey with on these boards can't even tell if a goal has been scored unless the puck STAYS in the net.

And I really wish they'd use something with more give than metal for the posts. The way the puck goes FLYING off the bar when it hits is really distracting and it looks quite stupid. It should be foam or something soft so that when it hits it makes a dent and you can TELL it hit the post.

One thing I don't like, is how sometimes a goal bounces off the net so fast that you can't tell the puck even entered the net.

Ex: Koivu's goal in tonight's Wild-Blues game

OP has a point. It's very annoying when every goal ends up flying out of the front of the net in the blink of an eye. Makes it hard to know if the puck ever even crossed the net.
