actually, it was getting sort of ridiculous anyway. do we really need 7 thrown every game?
a bit excessive.
It doesn't seem so much about tradition anymore as about ending up on Sports Center or getting hits on YouTube. Peoples tendency to take things to far is as much to blame as Bettman, an opinion that probably won't get me many friends around here.
The thing is if your going to cite people for this you better start citing people for chucking a hat on the ice. IMO that could be considered discriminating by singling out one group.

The world needs more Bill Davidsons. Detroit can't or won't do what's needed for the Pistons so he just says "f*** it, I'll build my own arena in Auburn Hills." No taxpayers money, no bonds, just his cash. Opened in 88' and is still a great place to watch an event.

Here is a little tid bit if you break the glass you buy the glass, example if kids hockey has a game there and the glass breaks during play not a problem but if your kid hits the glass with his or her stick and it breaks and it is not an accident there parents just bought that broken pile of glass
That's not a pile of broken glass. That's E-Bay souvenirs material. Turn those lemons into lemonade.
The tears of the haters sustain me. Their anguish is like a cool drink on a sweltering day. They are the Charlie Brown to our Lucy, we'll always keep pulling the football away while they continue thinking the next time will be different.
In listing the ways Chicago has blatantly ripped off the Wings, you all forgot to mention their style of play. They draft Kane and Toews (Datsyuk and Zetterberg, anyone?), then add Hossa. They change to a puck possession style of play and mimick virtually everything the Wings did for years.
They really are like a jealous little brother, only no one ever calls them out on it except for Wings fans. Bums.
For the last 15yrs or so, probably longer, the Wings have been the cream of the NHL. What stuns me is why someone hasn't tried to play the way we do sooner.
I find Hawkeytown a pretty clever play on words. Of course their blowing up due to the cap has made my summer.
