its amazing how politics always seems to find its way into threads.
is it actually left wing to support the NHL moving in a direction to make sure its players
don't die from brain damage, and move in a direction to continue the game in a better way, keeping
it much faster than ever before, but tweeking it slightly to make it safer, seems very sensible and
progressive. Hitting will never be gone from the game, and the players are bright enough to adjust their
games through out this season, and still play it at a very high and exciting level.
The old rockem sockem style hockey was actually boring, a slower pace, clutching and grabbing, unless one
only went to the games to see that style, but now there is more size, speed, talent, great passing and
athletes in top physical condition, without goons playing the game, there are very few of them left, and
soon there won't be any.
