Just curious, this has probably been discussed somewhere in the 7 pages of this thread but aren't we a democracy? Don't laws like this have to be voted on by the people to get passed? Who other than opposing teams or Bettman really have a problem with this? I understand the civil fines and jail time when this happens in opposing arenas but at the Joe, how could the majority of people have any problem with it at all? Maybe I am just confused on how laws come to be and get enforced.
Regardless... as I said in my first post a few pages back, This isn't going to stop 60 years of tradition. Guarnsheed.
Hey guys, during a discussion on the TV scheduling for the playoffs, it came up that many people are not from Michigan and won't get the FSD coverage.
I personally am born and raised here in the great state of Michigan and have lived here my whole 20 years of life. I am curious to see what general region the rest of us here on LGW come from. I know the Red Wings have a huge fan base worldwide but I still think many on this site are from Michigan. Maybe not?
Oh, and if you would like to specify even more such as state or country, go ahead and post. I know some people are touchy about their location so that's why I kept it vague at regions for the most part (plus I am only allowed 10 options )
-He was able to skate off on his power -He took 1 shift after the hit (Others say he didn't, but he clearly did, and then after that shift there was a stoppage as he went to the dressing room) -He was able to get up after he got hurt without assistance
Those are just some of the things that I noticed when that all occurred.
Other Injuries and there circumstances: Kopitar was not able to get up under his own power and had to be assisted off the ice. [Broken Ankle] Callahan didn't play another shift after he blocked the shot[Broken Leg]
Just some examples as to why I don't believe it's a long term injury
That doesn't really mean a whole lot. Franzen scored a goal with a torn MCL last year. But the other things are good signs.
