07:32 AM ET 10.02 | Darryl Sutter has been around long enough to share his opinions on the game, and he was asked Tuesday about the recently passed hybrid icing rule: "You know what? You ask the players, because, quite honest, it's the only rule in the history of the game that the players actually decided on the night before the season started, which seems a little odd. ... I mean, hopefully they can't make a rule up next week, too. What's good about it? [Reporter: Just preventing injury, perhaps.] So, can you count in the last 10 years how many there were? [Reporter: I just read today about two, maybe in the last year.] Okay. [Reporter: It seemed to make the Olympic Games go faster. Like you know it's icing, Tweet. Let's go start it again.] That's all right. Quite honest, I'm fine with it."

I don't like it....I get the idea, I just don't like it

Well, now that our undefeated season has been lost. I don't care. I guess 81-1-0 might be acceptable. :-(

Who wound Duhryl up? He's been a veritable sound bite machine lately.

How you liking Grabovski?Sigh.

What a kid! Last night he was our bright spot for sure. Team was sloppy on defense and I wasn't surprised that the crowd and the Cup ceremony got the Hawks flying high.

And no, you can't have him back. Congrats on your start. Tough and hard fought, no surprise.

Sigh.

To quote a friend of mine....."who wouldn't want a 4 point a game guy"?

Oh yeah, Randy Carlyle.

Anybody see Grapes on this subject last night? He's long called for no touch icing.

But the way it's now in effect, nobody knows what's up, mostly because they are looking at the puck, not behind them to see what the linesman thinks about it.

His thinking is, in the regular season nobody is going to fight for the puck and icing will prevail.

But come the playoffs (the only thing in hockey that matters one iota) they will be charging for the puck and somebody is going to get hurt.

I think I concur.

If Burke hadn't signed him to a very, very big deal, he'd still be a Leaf. You guys got him at a bargain.

Things that make you go hmmmmmm.
