    Holy shit, these penalties are insane. I don't mind trying to rid the cheating on faceoffs or two handed chops to the hands, but there is no consistency on either. I've seen several D have to take faceoffs in 2 games I've watched so far.

    Yeah they at least need to have training sessions with the players to cover how the faceoff stuff is supposed to work now as it really seemed like nobody knew what the hell was going on on the two games I've watched :2c:

    I understand the refs approached the coaching staff/team before the game (not sure if locker room or on the bench before puck drop).

    What I saw looked surprisingly very consistent.

    Oh dear :rofl:

    Ok this is just idiotic... this doesn't happen very often but it is a flat out player safety issue. If a goalie loses a piece of protective equipment play should stop, period. Niemi could have easily broken his hand last night.

    Are they serious right now? That's insane if they think there should be no stoppage of play for losing a piece of protective equipment that ya know, catches objects moving up to 90mph.

    Yeah absolutely ridiculous... Phil Bourque almost lost his mind on the broadcast of the game when it happened last night. I get the league is trying to increase scoring, but potentially injuring goaltenders and making over half the game 5 on 4s isn't the way to do it :rofl:

    Dear Carey,

    Are the Canadiens going to make the playoffs this year?

    So looking forward to having Steve Mears call our games starting tonight... will be nice to have somebody working that actually calls the play and doesn't just make things up when he misses what is going on :lol:

    Tonight is Vegas' first home game, I would have loved to watch it if only it weren't so late.

    Congratulations to Nieme on trying to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory by giving up 2 goals in the last 30 seconds of the game :facepalm:

    Fortunately the Pens were up by 3 :lol:

    Caps basically fielded an NHL team last night and got smoked in the first period 4-0. Just all kinds of ugly.

    At least I can take some comfort in knowing that some things never change.

    Saw the score and figured they weren't playing most of the starting lineup... damn :lol:

    Nope, that could have been an actual lineup for the season. 1-5 and haven't scored more than 1 goal in 5 of those.
