    Which way should the college game go?

    Hockey rules and how they are enforced shape the game. 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? Deliberate decisions about rules and enforcement will determine the style of college hockey the athletes will get to play and the fans will get to watch.

    Why is it I can figure out the thread author from the title?

    The clear answer is sideways.

    I find it ironic that a Cornell fan would ask a question like this.

    If we must choose, the game should go to Xbox. Defiantly.

    According to Horace Greeley, the men's game should go west. He didn't say anything about women.

    I think we can all agree that it doesn't matter where this game goes as long as the destination has NACHOS.

    That's why Horace is no longer coaching. Today's coaches want the game to go north-south, not east-west!

    It should go backwards. Back to 1986 when conference playoffs and NCAA regionals were campus sites, the Great Western Conference was in existence, Hockey East had just been formed, the ECAC had 17 teams, only eight teams made the NCAA tournament, chicken wire was still in use at some barns... you know, the "Good Old Days" of hockey.

    At his graduation ceremony from the U of Minnesota, my cousin got a keychain. When asked what UW gave her for graduation, my sister said, "A degree from a University that matters."

    Yes. That will make any program a perennial powerhouse.

    That chicken wire would decrease the number or concussions

    NMU Hockey Since 1976 ...there at the beginning.

    Bill Crawford, LSSU radio announcer, on NMU hockey: "This is their MO right to the tee: get out shot, get out played, keep hangin' in there, just rope-a-dope it in your own zone, get it up the ice, bang it in and win the game."

    It should go to space. I want to watch moon hockey.

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