So, I just read this about 20 min. ago. Seems like a bunch of B.S. to me!

NHL rule for Wings

Here's a snippet...

"NHL Says Detroit's Tomas Holmstrom Must Be Five Feet from Goal to Score (Satire)...NHL Director of Officiating, Terry Gregson, forwarded rule 96A to the Red Wings via fax which states: "The Detroit Red Wings will not be allowed to score a goal unless Tomas Holmstrom is at least five (5) feet away from the goal crease. If the on-ice official determines that Holmstrom is less than five (5) feet away from the goal at the time the puck enters the net, the goal will be immediately disallowed."

I don't think it was meant to be funny. Looked like more of a jab to me over how inconsistent the league is and how coddled the officials are, in biased fashion of course.

When I read the title of this thread I thought it was something real, sounds like something the NHL would do...

Too bad that joke is like 3 years old now.
If some bored artist wants to make me a signature, feel free to cut loose and do so.

Of course, I could get off my lame rear and do something.

The bad thing is - I completely bought it.
