Personally, I'm sick of the shootout. I would love to see a 10 minute 4-on-4 session to allow the overtime period to actually get going. 5 minutes just seems like such a short time. If it's still tied after 10 minutes, end the game. Stop awarding the "loser point" and stop handing out 1 point for just getting to overtime. Wins should be 2 points, and nothing else should count. Create a reason for teams to actually battle for the win in overtime. What with how crowded the playoff picture is, I'm willing to bet that every team in a overtime would do anything to win and get the two points.6 AnswersHockey9 years ago
He has one total goal the entire season. He has 0 assists. He doesn't play regular shifts. He's not a future cog of a team that's starting to show some real promise. I could understand if the suspension was to a future star or someone like that, but it's Trevor Gillies. I'm not looking for an angry rant about how the NHL hates the Islanders or anything like that. I'm looking for a real answer that has logical facts as to why your team actually needs Gillies. As I understand it, Zenon Konopka fills the enforcer roll better than Gillies does. As an added plus, Konopka actually has multiple points on the season. So whoever can construct a real argument as to why Gillies needs to be in an Islanders uniform, you'll get 10 easy points.
Also, don't whine about Cal Clutterbuck thinking that's a justification. Clutterbuck's hit was a boarding. I already concede that. I'm not looking for you to vilify another player because you think it makes your guy look better.8 AnswersHockey10 years ago
The Lions are on the verge of completing the first 0-16 season in NFL history. Do you think they can somehow win at least one game, or will the hapless Lions snatch defeat from the jaws of victory? Their final game is in Green Bay against a Packers team that can't close out victories.
