It happend to them 1 game last night. That's my point
Just because it might have happened to them 1 game (and it's probably happened to them more - just like any other team) doesn't make it any more right to yank on their fans when our fan base would be throwing the same hissy fit. Whining about the refs is stupid no matter how much/little they have too much of an influence.
Kids don't want to learn how to check at that age for the most part(meaning checking properly, they obviously want to hit). Their skillset is undeveloped, and taking checking out of the game until they have a solid grasp and the cognitive ability to understand when, how and why bodychecking is allowed in the NHL I completely agree with Alberta's decision. All it takes is one kid to not know the skill to make an huge negative impact. Even if 95% of the kids could hit properly, there is still going to be situations where checking from behind, elbows etc. get up because the kid doesn't understand the consequences of the play. That's not even mentioning the fact that even legal checks can severely hurt a young player. There is still a lot to teach kids about the game, teach them to be strong on the skates along the boards, teach them how to protect the puck, teach them how to cycle, just because you can't lay someone out doesn't mean you can't teach the player to be strong on the puck during battles and to protect themselves.
I understand that some want kids to learn how to protect themselves at a young age, but in my opinion that's like letting a kid drive a car immediately off the lot and just let him learn as they go, putting other people and themselves in danger. There is a reason in society that responsibilities have to earned over time, and I don't see why hockey should be any different. Kids hitting each other put them at more risk, because their mind and body is still developing, and concussions can happen from perfectly legal checks. I don't see why any parent would be against this, but then again I'm just a 23 year old.
The suspect was shot and wounded. He escaped and was a block outside their perimeter.
And it's a lot easier to hide in a big city than you think. Not to mention, he only fled authorities for what, 28 hours? Barely a day. They knew where he was, but short of firebombing the area, you don't take unnecessary risks with your personnel. As long as they had him cornered, so to speak, they had time.
Aw, more victim talk. How cute. Here's some insight, when people refer to the "points leader" they actually say "points leader". It's a general concept, not an absolute one. Hopefully it's not too difficult for you to grasp.
This is so pointless.
My context was "scoring leader" as in leading the league in points.
The art ross is given to the
player who leads the League in scoring points at the end of the regular season
Is it that difficult to grasp? Is it that big of a sin that I didn't say "point scoring leader". Do people really only attribute scoring to goals and not points? Or are you just trying to run around in circles and argue meaningless things?
