In Topic: Tatar Signs 3 Year Deal $2.75 mill AAV

This is an ok deal by Holland. I would have preferred a slightly lower payment, or even better (and more realistic), locking him in for 5 years. 


But no, KH is going to write up this contract to expire at the exact time RFA rights expire. OK  :lol:

What's wrong with havinga winner ? Different sports are having different metrics and just because a stupid sport like soccer is having a tie, doesn't mean hockey should do so too.


The most important part in all of this is how are the players thinking about the shootout ?


That thar stupid sport hur hur hur

Hmm, pretty decent plan. I remain skeptical until it is all actually built and developers and investors have signed on. It will be a shame if it turns into something like Westgate, the "entertainment and shopping district" that surrounds the Yotes arena. What a failure that one was.

If we want a team game do 6 on 5 for 2:30 then switch and see who scores the most. There's a team game.


This is actually an interesting idea. Why not just give each team a power play, say a double minor, and have it be an 8 minute period? Something along those lines. I like the power play OT. Cool idea.

I get what you're saying, but there's nothing in sports that I hate more than ties. Ties have no place in the game, there should always be a winner and a loser. Get rid of the 3 point game (because let's face it you shouldn't get a point for losing) and get rid of the shootout. With those two things gone teams would have more of an incentive to win in regulation, instead of dragging the game out to OT to get a point.


I'll disagree with you since the tie has a long history in hockey, but I'll certainly agree with eliminating the 3 point system. You can see teams all season long hanging on, floating around until the end of regulation just to get one point. No points for losing teams. 


You didn't mention how you'd end a regular season game. No tie, no shootout....what does that leave you with?
