In Topic: PTI gives hockey/Red Wings no love

Hockey and soccer have a similar pace to each other (for god's sake don't think I'm considering them similar sports) and it's just way too different than the U.S favorites. You have to actually understand the strategy as it plays out and pay attention at all times or you'll miss the great plays.



True true to that. Hockey and indoor soccer have many similarities including on the fly substitutions and using the boards to move the puck/ball. When i used to play indoor soccer you get a delay of game for hitting the ball out of bounds from the defensive third, it didnt result in a penalty but a direct kick close to the goal. Many soccer fans also love hockey because its so similar

Let's not get too far ahead of ourselves. Columbus has a good, young squad and they are in the playoffs for a reason, not because they are horrible. Yes, a sweep would be nice but crazier things have happened i.e. Boston Red Sox coming back from 3-0 against the Yankees in '04. And to the person saying we need the time to rest our injured players, I think we're looking just fine without Drapes and Lilja.

Hockey is entertainment just like all the other sports, and I find it entertaining whenever clowns like Avery are on the ice. It gives the NHL more media coverage on crap stations like ESPN that only show the most entertaining highlights, so I say let him continue with it all.
