Watching highlights, it seem the puck is literally flying out of the net after every goal. Once in a while, if the puck hits the inside crossbar, it's OK if it flies out. It used to happen from time to time and it was fine. But not on every single goal like it is this season.
Even on empty net goals, the puck comes flying out of the net almost to the blue line. It's silly. It's very distracting and sometimes you can't even tell a goal was scored.
Nothing is more distracting then the ice girls during intermission. Although I'd love to keep them around.
Oh, I thought we were the only team that did that Busch-league crap. Well, I know Chicago has Ice Girls but Devil's Dancers? Gtfoh. Even worse they have a friggin dedicated platform they dance on in between play.
The net is too damn tight. We should all get up and leave for the first period so the NHL knows we are angry. Anyone who still attends games with these ultra tight nets is wrong. What next? Orange plastic blades on the sticks? Multi-puck power plays? I'm puttin my foot down now! Whose with me?
I disagree, I think NHL 13 needs these nets. I even wrote that in the developer's thread on EA's NHL forum. I hate scoring a goal off a hard slap shot in that game and seeing the puck hit the netting and just drop like a brick. In and out goals are one of my favorite things to see in hockey. Like someone else said, it adds a lot of pizzazz.
First timer here. I just had to be a part of this thread.
Everyone crying about the jokes need to stop being so sensitive. They are just jokes. And some of them were really hilarious... before people just started rewording the same one. Its not bullying though. Relax.
Also to the OP, please just laugh about it and don't be discouraged to share your opinions in the future.
I agree with the OP. If the net isn't doing it's job by keeping the puck past the goal line, then you might as well remove the net. It takes up too much space anyway. I'm dead serious. The NHL should go back to the old days where there was no net and just two pipes.
