Guys, I think Stamkos' wrist shot is too good, think they should make rule that allows him to only use a rotted wooden stick? It's not fair to the rest of the league.

then again, they made it freaking illegal for goalies to play the puck in some areas so who the hell knows
They already tried and it wasn't passed. I don't think anyone even wanted it changed badly enough to even have a vote.

Trapping and parking the bus, two entirely different things.

The trap doesnt nullify an offense to that degree. Should the Devils just charge the net and shove everyone out of the way?

Get rid of the chest protector? Yeah, lets make it a Nerf puck while we are at it.

Feel free and be prepared to complain about a "bs [interference] call".

I think it's reasonably likely that if scoring goes down again next season, that the 'one foot on the ice to block shots' will get an AHL tryout, and possibly make it to the NHL.

No one would be complaining if the Capitals were in the ECF despite being a clone of the Rangers. Why? Because they have Ovechkin and the Capitals identity will always be tied to him for as long as he's in Washington.

The Rangers block a lot of shots and when you have the best goalie in the game on top of that that's going to get a lot of opposing fans' panties in a knot.

No, make them a lot smaller. The chest protector size:chest size ratio is ridiculous. Especially with Lundqvist.

Tanking isnt something you can just start doing on command. The Rangers are built to play defense for 60 minutes and absorb punishment.
So now you're saying that Washington blocks more shot because they have better skaters, speed, and talent. Before that you JUST said it doesn't take talent to block shots. BTW, the Rangers had more shots and Washington had more blocks. The Capitals looked like they were on the PK far more than the Rangers.

BTW, the Devils absolutely killed hockey with their trap that no matter what the equipment is like doesn't take nearly as much courage as blocking shots (tell Callahan how safe it is) and now Devils fans are complaining it's a joke. Pot calling the kettle black if I've ever seen it.

How about using a soccer net instead??? Just so you guys get 1 or 2 goals.

Its like you telling NBA players they cant try to block a shot while someone is shooting.
Not all blocked shots are legal in the NBA, you can't have a 7 foot tall guy jumping up and grabbing 3 pointers out of the air. NHL should adopt some sort of illegal blocking if a player leaves his feet. ANYTHING to create some offense because hockey is so brutal to watch right now.

Didn't Bob Gainey recommend that there be a rule that there has to be one skate blade on the ice while blocking shots?

NCAA already does this:

HR-68 RULE 6 / PLAYING RULES
PENALTY—Minor.
b. A defending player, except the goalkeeper, shall not be permitted to fall
on the puck, hold the puck or gather the puck into the body or hands
when the puck is within the goal crease.
PENALTY—Penalty shot/optional minor; an additional penalty shall not
be assessed.

c. If a player leaves the feet to play the puck and does not make contact with the opponent, play shall continue.

Note: This section is intended to restrict the diving or sliding type of body block. It is not intended to restrict a player who has fallen to the ice from playing the puck or to prevent a player from going down on one or both knees to block a shot.

I am trying to figure out how Rangers didn't go undefeated this year, with all that cheap shot blocking and all.

So your counter-argument against a shot-blocking rule is to provide even more stats that show there's a ton of shot-blocking ?

I'm not in favour of such rule by the way. I don't see anything wrong with what the Rangers are doing. What I don't get is why Rangers fans are getting so defensive about it. It IS boring as hell to watch. Why would you care, your team keeps winning.

Bitter much?

Washington blocked more shots than the Rangers in that series by a good margin. Learn to understand hockey please.

Did you read my other posts? People weren't complaining when the Caps blocked shots. Just because we are winning while doing it is why people are complaining.

The only reason you say its ridiculous is your boys lost game 1. Where were you when Washington beat the briuns blocking shots? Your problem is that the team that is doing it the best, beat your boys in game 1. Maybe the Devils should learn how to block shots! Theres more to the game than goal scoring. That's what makes hockey, hockey. If you dont want anything else you should go watch the NBA.

Right or wrong, the NHL doesn't want a team that scores only 222 goals in 82 goals having 51 wins, IMO.
