When pucks are rocketing out of the net at 100 miles per hour, to the point that you can't even tell whether a goal has been scored or not... I'd say that's pretty distracting.

Kovalchuk just scored a goal against the Hurricanes, rocketed off the back bar. But because the net is so tight with no loose mesh hanging over the back bar...nothing moved. Play continued for like 4 minutes afterwards.

I agree with the OP. It's obviously not a big deal, but it does look really goofy.

See the Devils game tonight maybe this is right, about 4 minutes of hockey was played just to get called back because of a goal the refs did not see.

I laughed at this thread originally, but after seeing Kovalchuk's goal...it's true. We played nearly 4 minutes before a stoppage after it was called no goal on the ice.

It was ruled a goal the clock was reset 4 minutes. Pretty dumb playing 4 minutes of hockey that everyone but the players know isn't going to count.

My earlier post in this thread. This time they played 4 MINUTES without knowing it went in. You gotta know when a goal is scored.

Kovalchuk's goal popped the bottle a bit too and the ref still called it no goal...

I agree with OP..

I only like to see the absolute BOMBS of shots come flying out after....not every shot.

Like these : (I suck at embedding) edit: That hit the back bar, but you get the point, absolute bombs will fly out of the net usually, and those I love cause you knew it was a rocket. Not every other goal doing it.


I like to see the little bulge when someone roofs it or snipes low.

Makes it a bit harder for officials and it'll cause for pointless stoppages of plays for reviews.

And the puck rarely gets stuck on the back of the nets these days, and one chop on it gets it off usually. Not a big deal.

They're definitely strung too tight this year.

I dare anyone to watch the Blackawks-Canucks highlights on NHL.com and tell me this isn't a real issue. Every damn puck was rocketing out of the net at a 100 miles per hour. Looked so stupid.

Amazing game though. And it proves yet again (with every few exceptions) goals = excitement. You can't have comebacks and lead changes without goals. You just can't.

I want to say it was 1979, but I remember the Canadiens once scored in OT against the rangers in the playoffs but the puck was in and out so fast that no one noticed. A few minutes later the Canadiens scored again to win. So this isn't necessarily a new problem.

It's so hard to score goals in the NHL and then when a goal finally is scored it happens so quickly that you're just as likely to miss it as see it go in. It's kind of frustrating because there is no real play development that leads to a goal. It's random and then you can't see the puck in the net so you have no idea what just happened.

From my observations, Phoenix has the ideal net tightness

Everyone was laughing at the OP but I thought he was right. The Kovy goal wasn't the first to demonstrate this problem.

Nets are too tight.
I've started to notice this too. I've seen games where the puck crosses the goal line and pops out to like the blue line and that goof Mike Emerick is all like "Oh, great save by Lundqvist" or some sh_t and I'm saying "Wait a minute, nobody else saw the puck hit the back of the net before bouncing back out??" then a couple seconds later the ref is pointing to the goal line inside the net and he's like "Oh, I guess it was a goal. I though the goaltender got his blocker on that one but I guess not..."

I've also had to roll my eyes as the announcers talk about how they are unsure about a goal and it'll probably need to be reviewed and I saw the damn puck hit the back of the net. It bugs me when two nimrods are too occupied with hearing themselves talk to follow the puck
