Olympic Hockey... NHL Style

If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery then the NHL I guess should be a little flattered because the Olympics want their Hockey to be played exactly the same way the NHL plays their Hockey. Free... Fast... Flowing... with lots of SKILL showcased.
"We're going to have the same level at least -- if not stronger," Fasel said Tuesday. "We'll have four NHL officials and other officials from the IIHF and we will work together and follow the line set by the NHL.

"I'm very, very pleased to see how it works in the NHL. That's the way we should play the game all the time."
It's good to see the whole World led by the NHL coming together to end the plague of clutch and grab Hockey. It gives me hope for all humanity. Well, at least a little hope.

  • Hockey thought of the Day:
    Hockey belongs to the Cartoon Network, where a person can be pancaked by an ACME anvil, then expanded - accordion-style - back to full stature, without any lasting side effect.
