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.

Lets see how many people think it's real. :lol:

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

To be honest, I bit at first since I overlooked the title of the blog article. I quickly caught on though :D

I believed this until insaw 96A. Everyone knows there will never be an A next to 96

Awesome.

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

Kenny totally Houdini'd the Wings arena from Detroit, MI to Satire, MI. Damnit, why didn't I see this coming? You win this round, Mr. Holland..
