I'm sure glad I didn't waste 50-100 bucks on that pathetic display last night. Not one fight either... I see fans staying away in droves... What a goddamn ripoff.
GREAT JOB NHL, for ROYALLY screwing up what was once BY AND FAR the most kick ass spectator sport on earth. It used to be edge of your seat excitement. Now, fans just sit there like zombies and zone out as nondescript players wearing 4 inches of armor bounce around like pinballs, injuring each other indiscriminately because they know they won't get their asses kicked.
You know all these open ice hits we think are so bitchin... you know, the ones that destroyed Eric Lindros' career, screwed up Paul Kariya, and knocked Pat LaFontaine out of the game? Well, you used to get your ass kicked for something like that, clean or not. That's just the way it was.
Last night, Cam Janssen steamrolls a Panther and who is there to kick his ass? Nobody, because being a pussy on the ice is now part of the NHL's philosophy. So, unless there's a goon on the ice, nothing happens. Other players need to step up. I guess they're too worried about getting a punch in the nose or (Frank) up their expensive dental work.
It's absolutely pathetic.
I propose capping the maximum salary of an nhl player at 100 grand. I'm franking serious. Give the profits from team revenue to charity. Something needs to be done to bring the honor and balls back to this once great game. This is (Frank) bullshit.
F*CK YOU NHL
