"If you are going to get the puck with an attacker on you, you have options.
1. Push back against the attacker to lessen the blow.
2. Get your damn arms up to lessen the blow.
3. Make the play and quickly turn to the side...to lessen the blow.
4. Take a slightly different route to avoid facing the boards TO LESSEN THE BLOW." - 'Not-a-Shot'
Wow. It's so easy when you say it!
Problem is there is no time to do any of your tips. Since they got rid of the Red Line, disallowed goalies from playing the puck and made it impossible to slow any forechecker from gaining 100 feet of speed - all in the name of more goals - the defenceman has been under siege and these injuries are way up - real or imagined.
LOL! Yea why Gary? Nothing gets put in until the BOG's approves the changes. For the most part. Gary doesn't even bring up changes to the game at all. That's the GM's who do does that. As a Canadian I'm glad the NHL has Bettman! We wouldn't still have 7 franchises here.
Exactly. All Gary bettman does is represent the owners, the guys that bankroll the league. I think he's done a pretty good job for the most part. He has his flaws but people blame odd things on him, like the lockout and such.
