NHL OFFSEASON - 2011

Recommended Posts

What joy is there to be derived from following a perpetual first-round out that reliably sells off its few talented players amidst a big blob of replacement-level system guys? I mean, I guess you could say that about the Oakland A's, but baseball is baseball; it's not like you can run a drag-'em-down-to-your-level trap scheme in baseball, you either have successful outcomes or you don't. If the Predators can't secure the closest thing they've ever had to a franchise player, then what is there but singing "I like it, I love it, I want some more of it" when your team actually deigns to score a goal every now and then? It's going to look pretty bleak if they flip Weber.

Couldnt agree more. It was more a prediction than a hope.

Plus, the A's have one of the nicest stadiums in the league in the Colis... Um, they invented the Wave?

At least one used to be able to get high in the upper deck. Now they even took away that. No atmosphere.

Well, the Canucks' offseason has certainly made me glad I switched over to the Jets.

I'm guessing the regular season will make you want to switch back.

And then when the Jets win the Cup you will want to switch back again.

No, because the world would have ended at that point.

Sean Avery Arrested

Called the cops "fat little pigs".

I've wanted to see a 3 on 3 OT for quite sometime, but what happens with penalties? 3 on 2, 3 on 1? Or do the Refs have a blind eye to everything.

I think they would actually add a player to the team on the power play, and make it a 4-on-3, then 4-on-4 from the time the penalty is over to the next whistle. I seem to recall that's what happens in some of the junior leagues that do it.

I think that 3-on-3 after 4-on-4 could work very well. I've wanted to see that. I really think this would help avoid more shootouts.

Meanwhile in Tampa Bay, the Lightning have installed Tesla coils onto their scoreboard for pre-game stuff and for goal celebrations. And I think that is AWESOME!

That is pretty sick. Flames board shoots Flames, Lightning's board shoots Lightning.

the only rule change that sounds good is the trapezoid removal. Everything else is just a useless tweak.

Somehow, I see this ending poorly.

Not at all. I'm really intrigued to see full 2 minute powerplays.
