I've been petitioning for years for the NHL to take the metal part at the bottom of skates off for safety concerns and they won't listen now pucks are coming back at you 100mph this is redic.

Also, if you are going to correct spelling, use proper punctuation.

As long as they are playing hockey again I could care less about the mesh.

Agree with OP, no reason for all the backlash. I have noticed this on several goals this year and it looks goofy.

Funny I hadn't really noticed until this, then last night I saw 2 instances where no one, even the refs, knew there was a goal. In the edm/co game there was a shot by edm (forgot who) that was wired to the back of the net and popped out so hard, everyone kept playing and they ended up getting a rebound goal, but when reviewed the initial shot was indeed a goal, just impossible to see. Nets are too tight.

Yeah I've noticed this too, and it is definitely confusing for fans and players. On Eberle's goal last night, it looked like it went off the crossbar when it had in fact gone in the back of the net and bounced out. Schultz put it in the net again to make sure lol.

how is it distracting, the puck goes in the net the light goes on.....is it distracting from following the puck every second?

itd be a much bigger deal, and something actually worth discussing if the nets were so loose that the puck sits in the slack and it interrupts the game, that'd be a legitimate problem.

I have noticed this before, but after reading this thread last night, I saw a goal that struck me as the exact situation the OP is talking about, and the confusion that takes place.

Check out last nights 2nd goal by Edmonton in the first period. Eberle shoots (and scores) but because the puck drops and flies out quick, some of the players thought the play was still on, as Schultz grabbed the rebound and buried the already scored goal. A defenseman went down to block the shot AFTER the goal as well.

Certainly not a major issue at all to me, but I can say for certain what the OP suggested happens quite often, and it just doesn't look or feel natural.

These nets are ridiculous. When I watch NHL Tonight, it seems like a third of the goals pop back out of the net. Every time I see it happen I think of the Seinfeld episode where the Dominicans roll the crepes too tight so at least it is providing me some humor.

I'll apologize to OP. Initially, I ridiculed the idea, but after last couple of weeks, I totally see his point.

The mesh in all the nets would be brand new before the season. When the mesh is replaced it is tied very, very tight. It takes many weeks of practices and game play for the mesh to stretch out and become more "catching" as in the puck gets caught by mesh and stays in the net. Give it a couple of more weeks and problem will be solved

I love it personally. Nothing better than a snipe rocketing back out. Much more majestic than the puck laying behind the goalie just to be angrily whiffed at and finally paddled away to center ice.

I don't know why OP gets so much crap for this. It's a unique topic to discuss and when you watch for what he is talking about, it looks weird that the puck comes flying out of the net after a goal.

But hey keep saying the color of the ice, ect. is distracting. It's hilarious...

This is the funniest thread in the history of HF. I literally can't stop laughing at the idea that somebody was so pissed off they had to come here and make a thread. IDC about the mesh, but the OP is right, im not going after the OP.

Just picture it in your mind somebody watching a game and having the puck shoot out of the net at a high pace, seconds later he gets up off the recliner in a fit of rage, runs to a computer and makes this thread, as they are sooo ****ing pissed.

I'm not making fun of the OP, but just imagine seeing the reaction and how it bothers somebody that much

Whenever i see someone wind up for a shot or whip their stick back I always look at the net, you never miss a thing that way.

Agreed... way more swaggy when you rip it top shelf and it comes flying out of the net.

Looser netting makes shots look.... flaccid, for lack of a better word. And nobody likes flaccid anything.

When I stop and think about it, I really do prefer to watch a loose net, and have goalies dig it out of the net if I could choose.

Baby steps.

Agree with the OP, it would be handy if the puck stayed in the net. No need for a review, and cancelling the following part of play.

i agree with the OP.
I was watching the Beanpot last nite and the mesh on those nets were what Im used to seeing.
Im hoping the Bruins are going back to them. We'll see tonite.

Well, if we're to the point where the biggest beef we have with the league is how tightly the nets are strung, we have truly reached hockey Nirvana. Well done Mr. Bettman, well done....
