Is it possible for this guy to think of worse threads to start?

To quote Maxwell Smart, "Don't tell me you are encouraging this guy."

BB_DL: "I encouraged the guy."

Max: "I asked you not to tell me." ;)

I don't think hockey is an ambi-turner.

Should college hockey rules and officiating standards encourage the "dump and chase"/"cycle the puck around the boards" style of play prevalent in the NHL, or should they encourage the open ice passing game of European and Olympic hockey?

And should Don Cherry be chosen to write the new national anthem? And who the ******* does have the nicest jerseys?

The rules committee is meeting to discuss changes, new rinks are being built to NHL specifications, early departures to the pros swell, and nacho noshers are oblivious to the causes and effects of these realities. If ignorance is bliss these jokers are in paradise.

If ignorance is bliss [then I'm one of] those jokers [who] are in paradise.


FYP....


oh, btw, what is wrong with ties? they keep talking about shootouts, longer overtimes, etc. .... I like it better during the regular season to allow ties at the end of regulation but go back to the 3 points for a win 1 point for a tie system instead. most chess matches at the highest levels end in draws, that's what happens when teams are evenly matched.

But the casual idiot sees a tie and thinks OMG THERE ISSN'T A WINNNAR!!!!!!!!!! HOW CAN THIS BE?!?!?!?!?! And then they go watch Dan LeBetard Is Highly Questionable and fondle themselves while looking forward to the fantasy football season.

As long as we are on the subject of those who are "oblivious to the causes and effects of these realities," how about ponying up some answers to questions some of us raised in a very similar thread you started. What data to you have to support a claim that rink size has a correlation to one-and-done departures? You made that connection, and we noted that recent history at Wisconsin, Minnesota, and NoDak suggested an opposite conclusion. We then asked for data to support your assertion, only to have you go silent on us. This nacho nosher truly wishes to be delivered from the bonds of ignorance. Set a joker free.

Logic suggests DI college hockey adherence to NHL sized ice and to rules and their enforcement modeled after NHL standards all contribute to schools recruiting players whose goal is getting to the NHL, makes these players more attractive to the NHL, and expedites the departure of these athletes from colleges and universities. These are not the only causes of a rash of early departures. Recruiting athletes who lack the academic preparation or the desire necessary for academic success probably contributes to early departures. Huge salary increases enjoyed by NHL players are likely another contributing factor to early departure.
I suggested that college hockey emulating NHL [or major junior] ice size, rules, and rules enforcement would probably contribute to the early departure rate. I never claimed early departures varied directly with ice surface area, or even that ice sheet size is a necessary condition for an early departure, although such a claim would certainly legitimize your request for statistics. If you wish to seek objective evidence of causes leading to early departures I suggest you first investigate the changes in NHL signing bonuses and player contracts over the past few years, and an investigation into any changes in academic standards for admission and for scholarships might be enlightening.

Dang. Either Oso is trying to hide behind himself, or he is chasing his tail. Looks painful and surely embarrassing.
