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."

That blog was not funny.

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.

Awesome.

As for the rest of you: The word for the day is "Satire".

Money on the board!  Current total: $7

$1 for each goal scored by a current Wing after whom I've named a hamster.  +$5 if one scores a hat trick.

+$1 if a GWG.  +$5 if it is a GWG in a series-winning game.+$50 if it is the GWG that wins us the Cup.

$5 for each time a goalie after whom I've named a hamster prevents all opposing shots from going in the net.

The hamsters names are as follows (current Wings in red)

Henrik Pavel Tomas Nicklas Dominik

Niklas Matthieu Daniel Robert

Johan Andreas Valtteri Jonathan

Andrew (Drew) Patrick Ian Todd

Jordin Damien Gustav James
