Default NHL resizing the nets???

I was watching The Score this afternoon and they were saying that the GM's are going to have a meeting and they're going to propose two new net dimensions. They want higher scoring games to attact new fans. Give me a fucking break. This pisses me off so much. I have no idea what the new dimensions are, but I don't care how little or big the new changes could be its still retarded. Keep the nets the same. Maybe if the talent wasn't so watered down scoring and better game play wouldn't be an issue.

They can just add a few more pucks if they want higher scroing games.

Maybe if they'd call the clutching and grabbing, scoring would increase...but if they're looking for implementable rules, then I'd suggest that they A) get the CBA taken care of pronto...and B) do away with the two line pass.

Honestly though there's no need to cut the two line pass if the refs would just call the freaking clutching and grabbing. Hockey's supposed to be the fastest sport on legs...when defensemen look like they're hitting it from behind and giving a reach-around at the same time, then that slows down the game, and it's bad.

Yeah, they are spending their time making the nets bigger, but they can't end the damn lockout. Kind of defeats the whole purpose of higher scoring games doesn't it?

Also the NHL doesn't need higher scores. Before the whole thing went to hell, I was starting to see 5-6 games....7-3 games....and even some 10-1 games. You make the nets bigger and it's gunna be fucking ridiculus.

Also don't you think higher scoring games are really going to diminish the Goalie position? I mean, look at how many shutouts golies like Patrick Roy, and Dominick Hasek had. If they make the nets bigger, then that's really going to make it hard for a really good goalie to come up, and make the Center and Wing positions easier.

Also...............Reb, if you can, can you try to figure out how big the nets are going to be? If they make them like fucking soccer nets, then I'm going to fucking protest.

So they're gonna increase scoring by making the game easier? That's not what sports is about. That's why people don't like steroids. If you're gonna score, work your ass off and do it the old fashioned way.

The answer to high scoring games is obviously to get rid of most of these dumb ass expansion teams. Then it'd be alot harder for untalented faggots to get into the league if there were less rosters to fill.

True but easier said than done...MLB couldn't even get rid of the Expos and Devil Rays. Of course, the work stoppage may help that along, but the NHL will be losing a lot more than just 2 to 4 teams if the lockout continues.

All I can say is that my Rochester Americans are the best hockey team in North America right now.

This reminds me of the episode of Late Night w/ Conan went he was playing hockey with some of the Leafs and they were using a net that was twice as big and he was pushing a recliner around to save the puck.

Higher scoring games to attract new fans? So does the NHL think defense won't sell?

I get your point, but what this move tells me is that NHL thinks than fans won't care about defense and 1-0 games. Personally, I like those games better because one false move could lead to a goal.

Meh. What I expect to happen is, once they get a good fanbase, those fans will probably get sick of the high scoring games, and the defence will get better.

Ok, last night on TV they were talking about it. There is actually three different sizes and not two like I said before.

The first net is just like 2 inches bigger. Right now I believe the nets are 48 inches by 70inches. The new nets would be 50 by 72. I don't know if two inches would make much of an impact?

The other net looked kinda weird. I wish I could find a pic of it. I really hope they don't use it because it looks extemely retarded. It was like a rounder shape. So instread of it being a rectangle, the goalposts would be rounded out (I hope I explained that good).

I forget that the 3rd style was like though. If it comes back to me or if I see it again on TV i'll post it.
