They were down 2-0 with a significant amount of time left in the game, yet they didn't care because they knew it was over because of the way the game is now played. They sat on their hands and you could hear a pin drop in that building.

Lat time I checked, leagues make rules that benefit the league as a whole. I think you are confusing what is best for any particular team with what is best for the game.

What game are you referring to where the home team was down 2-0?

Game one was in New York wasn't it?

Rangers were up 2-0 and the building wasn't quiet.


I suspect I've just learned a whole lot here.

I think it's an extremely stupid suggestion. How do you define what's a shot and what's a pass? And with a rule like this, it would always be a good idea just to shoot the puck at the defender before he manages to get one of his skates in the air. The games would be played mostly 3-on-3.

You realize there are more teams that just the Rangers, right? Like I said, nobody (except you and other Rangers fanatics) thinks this is a Rangers issue. It's a league issue. No matter how much you think the Rangers are the Yankees of the NHL, they aren't. Outside of the New York market, they are mostly an afterthought.

And I was clearly referring to tonight's game. You know, LA vs. Phoenix.

Ah. my mistake..... but you mentions Rangers several times in that post previous, guess read too fast, just assumed you were still talking about them in the last paragraph too.

No problem. The only reason I mention them is to repeat that they have nothing to do with this discussion.

This thread may have turned into a joke and it probably would have been better to include other teams along with the Rangers who block a high percentage of shots, but it is a serious question to ask if a rule might be changed based on how players can block a shot. People may think it's a big joke now but so where a lot of other rule changes like the trapezoid.
