Default NHL = Garbage

Attention all Hockey Pucks.

I challenge all you losers to prove me wrong. The NHL is by for the worst mismanged professional league in all of the credible sports league.

NFL. NBA. MLB, UEFA (ie. EPL, Serie A, Bundesliga, La Liga etc. etc.), any rugby union and the list goes on.


NHL run half pregnant in all their decisions and never have the foresight to make Imminate change like every other league in this free world (especially North America)


Ok Hockey pucks I challenge you now come get me I shall quickly make a fool out of you

It's because they have such a hard on for the US markets because they know that's where the real money is. It's just not working out for them.

I agree DVS.

as a kid i used to LOVE hockey.

Now i just flat out don't care. All the changes to the game - the shifting of great hockey teams to joke markets, have killed it for me.

my interest is completely non-existant which all the more causes me to shake my head at the amount of media coverage the NHL gets here in Canada. TSN is 80% hockey during Off the record, with is then followed by 90% hockey on their sportscentre show, which is then followed by a full half hour hockey analysis show, which is then followed be a half hour pregame show for a hockey game, which is then followed by the actual hockey game.

HOLY SHIT!!!! enough already.

and sportsnet. Hockey panels and hockey discussion followed by poker or ultimate fighting and then more hockey analysis,

and me last night:
Listening to the Raptors on radio while i was making a car model.

sorry - got a bit off topic there.

I totally agree though even though it is a tad offtopic. The thing that really turned me off on hockey was the introduction of the shootout. Now I really am on the fence about an actual shootout but its that dumb point they give to the losing team that really really really annoys me. That new rule was the straw that broke the camels back for me.

I am happy to say I haven't watched one full NHL game this year. I don't even think I made it through a period yet.

The fact that they're on record for saying everything is fine is laughable. All the other leagues say there's trouble. The NHL.....nope we're fine.

It's a terribly mismanaged league with the leader being a joke.

NHL Sucks ass!

Alot of it has to do with living in Canada and having to watch channels like TSN that live/breath hockey 24/7 and talk about it non stop like it's life or death.All i need to bring up is trade deadline day.If anyone has caught a glance at the over the top rediculous coverage of this day. TSN/The Score/Sportsnet all broadcast for 12 straight hours with at least 8 "Hockey analysts" on all day. It's a joke! And it's a big reason why i'm turned off Hockey.

But overall it is by far the most mismanaged, bush league out of all the major professional sports.

"The Good old hockey game..." is dying because of a man named Gary Bettman
