In Topic: Wings re-sign Cleary $1.5 mill + $1mill in game bonuses

My dad noticed his new number last season and said, "If I were Cleary, I would have change my number and the name on the back of the jersey."

He's only 30, so there's some good there.  I hate seeing the wings trading great talent for short-term contracts on aging forwards.

Yeah, I don't see charging, but it doesn't matter, you can't target the head like that.


In Topic: Canada can support 3 more teams in 20yrs

I would move a struggling US team to Hamilton and Quebeq.  I wouldn't do any more expansion.

I'm guessing you haven't watched hockey very long if you think this way.  

 

There's never been a time in NHL history when fighters had more skill than they do now.  15 years ago, enforcers who could barely skate would have a regular spot on every NHL team.  Those players are largely extinct.  Today's NHL has largely weeded out unskilled fighters.    

 

And a byproduct of this is that you get these wanna-be tough guys that go around cheap stuff like anything that Cooke does, and Boochich hitting DeKeyser in the nuts.

 

I'm still very dissapointed in the 5K fine, what a joke.
