Rule Changes in the AHL (what the NHL has considered)

12 July 2014 - 09:17 AM

Yesterday the American Hockey League annoced a few new rule changes.  I know the overtime and fighting (Yzerman suggested it last year) ones have been considered by the NHL as well.  This may be a test run in the AHL and could be something we'll see in the NHL for the future.


Rule 85 (“Overtime”)

  • During the regular season, the sudden-death overtime period will be seven minutes (7:00) in length, preceded by a “dry scrape” of the entire ice surface.
  • Teams will change ends at the start of overtime.
  • Full playing strength will be 4-on-4 until the first whistle following three minutes of play (4:00 remaining), at which time full strength will be reduced to 3-on-3 for the duration of the overtime period.
  • If the game is still tied following overtime, a winner will be determined by a three-player shootout.

Rule 20.4 (“Major Penalties”)

  • An automatic game misconduct will be applied to any player who has been assessed two major penalties for fighting or three major penalties for any infraction in the same game.

Rule 9.6 (“Helmets”)

  • A player on the ice whose helmet comes off during play will be assessed a minor penalty unless he immediately (a) exits the playing surface or (b) puts the helmet back on with the chin strap properly fastened.

Who is better.....
in regards to the TSN Play of the Year?  The finals have started today with both Wings players as the final 2.
Tatar's Goal

Nyquist's Goal

For those wondering last year's player (that's right, not plural) in the finals was Datsyuk.

New Michigan Sports TV Channel, Signed Deal w/Griffins

13 May 2014 - 04:49 PM

So some pretty substantial news in the Michigan sporting world.  Michigan Entertainment Sports is going to be launched this fall on various cable providers in Michigan, Indiana and Ohio.  They have signed a 3 year deal with the Grand Rapids Griffins and plan to pickup games from smaller college schools, not in the Big Ten, minor and junior level teams along with High School sports across the state.

Should be interesting to see what will become of this station, but good news for Wings and Griffins fans.  They are literally brand new, as they don't have anything on their site, http://mes-tv.com/

However they have another blog like site, here http://mymes.us/

Here is a quick bio of them on LinkedIn:  http://www.linkedin....tainment-sports

Leafs/Wings 24/7 Episode 2 Discussion (12/21)

21 December 2013 - 07:32 PM

I'll be tuning in right after tonight's game.  I wonder if camera are rolling for this game, it would only make sense.


Anyone notice that there is a game every time there is a new episode?  HBO and the NHL couldn't have worked together on that....oh well.



For those needing to catchup:
