Alot of oldtime fans like me dont like the new NHL to european for me.to many europeans also in the game.give me the old north american hockey any day. and get rid of that sickening shootout.this new NHL is geared for the younger fans and not the older fans.:thumbsdowhok said:The old NHL was getting stagnant - allowing borderline stick and holding penalties just created a sloppy game.
The new NHL is alot more entertaining. Speed, accuracy, and chemistry rule.
Entertainment is what fills the seats and propels this industry.
... and as a bonus it seems to agree with my fav teams like Sharks (old hometown), Oil, and Sabres (new hometown). :thumbsup:
