In Topic: The NHL reffing affecting the game

03 February 2014 - 02:50 AM

Sports in general are in the dark ages when it comes to using technology to streamline, verify, and interpret live play.  You can easily come up with 5 things the NHL could be using already in a couple minutes. 


That said, the NHL does a better job of implementing new technologies than most leagues.  Most of the time sports takes the cautious option and does nothing or waits for someone else to do it first.  The NHL is already using centralized review (with on ice primary decision taking into account when inconclusive) and most other sports are using TVs in the same stadium on a closed circuit network.  

In Topic: The Dan Cleary Hate Zone

I'll reserve my judgement on Cleary until playoffs assuming we make them.  I have to think some of the problem is just mental the way he turned up his game in the playoffs last year.

Yah. Sammy has us hostage.


Just let Sammy start practicing.  He will injury multiple people like he has in the past and we won't have a roster limit problem anymore.

I'll never understand your complete disdain for tootoo, yet your irrational love for "emdog"


I really don't get the Bert hate.  He is a good playmaker, back checks, scores in the shoot out, and protects the puck well.  We are better with him in the lineup than without.  Do we just hate people when they get old now?

Bertuzzi and Samuelsson were signed for their size and because the team didn't think Tatar and Nyquist were ready. They weren't. If a vet had played like either of them then most people would be screaming for blood. Hell Brunner was better than either of them but people still complained about him. BTW, I love how hypocritical typical Detroit fan is about signing players. Bertuzzi is too old. Get Jagr instead. Samuelsson was hurt a lot one year he's injury prone. Lecavalier missed 20% of his games the last 3 years they should sign him to a multi-year contract.


When Bert is playing I think it really changes the team.  People really under rate his creativity and playmaking.  I'm not sure what Sammy will bring if he is healthy this year.  Doesn't sound like he is doing that well from what I've been reading.
