    NHL Point System Poll

    Now getting rid of blue lines. There’s an idea.

    NHL Point System Poll

    Veg is 100% right on this one. Bigger rinks slow the game down and take away from scoring. Bigger rink means players have more room to back-up when they can’t decide what to do with the puck. There is less incentive to forecheck because they’ll just back up, and if you chase you’ll just be out of position when they attack. Defending players are taught to not pursue a player if he is outside of the face off dots. Doing that creates lanes and wastes energy. Bigger rinks do favour speedier players, but they also favour players who benefit from having more time (players with worse hands, and players who can’t think the game fast enough), so it doesn’t necessarily add to the skill. It also hurts the ability to generate offence off the cycle. Once you do the work on the boards and beat a guy, you’re further away from the net, so the rest of the defending team has more time to react and get in shooting lanes. Think of it this way: the scoring area remains the same, but now there’s more perimeter to work with. That doesn’t help with scoring. I like that it would reduce injury. But the pace would slow down.

    tom wilson ... again.,..

    Yea. What a jerk. I thought it was an unwritten rule in the preseason that vets take it easy on the physical stuff unless a young guy starts it. No reason for that at all, except to be a sociopath.
  4. Hahaha, I was hoping he would take a look. He's not the only one though....
  5. PCFL is stalling out. I think a couple of GMs think they are being skippeed, when they actually aren’t 🤔.
  6. Yea. He’s something to be excited about. If he can stick at C then maybe he could make things happen with Eriksson and Baertschi. If he’s not at C then there’s no one good to put him with. Offense dies when Sutter touches the puck.
  7. Pretty much every Canuck has disappointed except Petterson. Demko, not good. Dahlen, meh. Goldobin, lots of turnovers.

    vegeta box?

    I think the discord can serve this role now.

    Fantrax App

    Maybe I’m doing it wrong? The problem comes when I go to another app and then back to the fantrax app. Then it either wants to start all over again, or launch the website.

    Fantrax App

    Yea, I did that. But it doesn’t seem to do more than launch a new page of the mobile site, but I obviously have the mobile site running at all times on my phone . So it’s not hat helpful.

    Fantrax App

    The app stopped working for me when I got a new phone. Is there an app for iOS? I can’t find it when I search the App Store. The mobile site works great though. I rarely need a PC these days.

    Pacioretty is a Knight

    Better return than I expected from the Habs. Not because of the value of Patches, but because of Bergevin’s incompetence. All accounts are Kotkaniemi needed help at the prospects tourney. Glad he got some.

    Little teary eyed

    Hahahaha, I'm shocked he didn't turn in to a high calibre sniper. Live and learn I guess. Welcome back Fuku!

    That's Tom Wilson money!

    They win every lockout though. They get to roll back the salaries and start where they left off a couple years before. And suckers like me can’t help but flock back to their TVs.
