Topic: Hockey hasn’t been watchable since the demise of 70 goal scorers

Now a great season is 40+ goals for a couple of players if that. Fans want to see goal scorers but today there are no true stars. It would be like home run hitters topping out with two or three in the low 30s. Boring.

He won’t have had a 100 point season in a full decade after this season. You used to have defensemen with 100 point seasons. Now the best player can’t crack that mark in a decade.

So fucking what.  Defensivemen have gotten better at what they do.  Everything is relative my friend.  The winners are those who win in the current environment.  Not some standards set years ago that no longer apply.

That's just because the sport has changed. Goalies got bigger. Even the worst players can give superstars a hard time every once in a while. There's no way Gretzky would survive in today's NHL. He'd get his rib cage destroyed just with one hit by Shea Weber.

Unlike other sports like the NFL and NBA that have changed rules to increase offense, the NHL has changed rules to make it a more defensive game. That’s boring, watching teams dump the puck in every time instead of generating breakaways or two on one breaks.

Once Americans got their dirty hands on it, changed the sport completely

Make the goal net 8" wider 4" higher

Meanwhile in the NBA they should raise the net in basketball 6". Its too easy to dunk
