ontariolightning: Shouldn't CBS be more concerned about Football? Half the posters in this thread aren't even actual fans of hockey. If you aren't a serious fan of hockey you can just shut up and concentrate on a sport you do care about. Hockey doesn't need more Americans trying to change a game they don't watch. I agree with axing the instigator rule FWIW.
Tyrub: I don't think you can just eliminate the instigator rule, but I would like to see one change made to it.Pisses me off to no end when someone throws a hard clean hit, and then has to duck and cover from the rest of the team going after him. I think the instigator should still apply in that case, in fact I think the punishment for instigating after a clean hit should involve match penalty and additional game suspension.But if someone throws a dirty check (especially to the head), then no instigator punishment. All punishment could be reviewed again after the game if match penalty was assessed and should not have been, just like when ref misses original call for dirty hit and Shanny then gives a suspension.
Brakefornobody: Ah, hockey. The game for those who find NASCAR too intellectually challenging.
costermonger: What a wonderful contribution. It's no wonder so many people can't see your posts.
Lost Thought 00: If you make the punishment sufficiently severe, the problem goes away. If the problem persists, this implies that your punishments simply are not sufficiently harmful.
fatalvenom: Lost Thought 00: Fighting results in an automatic ejection and 10 game suspension, as well as a referral to the local DA for felony assault?Wut?
