Posted Sunday February 13, 2011, About: 3 fights in 4 seconds...sigh
go habs. 'the best hockey games never have any fights'.

alaska6: 'I truly worry what will happen if fighting gets taken out of the game. I worry we'll see more cheap shots and more stick swinging and the like'..

it sickens me to keep seeing these staged fights in the game that i love. im tired of it, and i turn the "highlights" OFF when they come on..

i will invest my time to watch professionals play this game, hockey, professionals that have spent 10,000 + hours to perfect, not to watch idiots beating each other.

there is no reason for this embarrassment anymore.
Posted Thursday February 03, 2011, About: weighted point system
i knew there was a flaw, thanks! i just feel there has to be a way to make the regular season games more meaningful, and maybe a different points system is a way. less games would be welcome too. but i agree, 2=win, 1=tie. i grew up with that!
Posted Thursday February 03, 2011, About: They Don't Get No Respect
i think partly it's the west coast syndrome: teams in all sports (except maybe the lakers) arent covered by east media as much due to the 3 hr time difference. the canucks lack a 'personality', other than the sedins, and they're quite stoic. the team's identity seems somewhat bland, faceless, clinical - they remind me of the nba spurs, getting it done in the win column but without flair or pizazz. that being said, every game i see on tv there are many canuck-jersey wearing fans in the stands!
