Players are forced to wear visors (or cages) all the way up to the NHL, at least in north america, right? So I don't get the issue with grandfathering it in. It's not like its some brand new thing they have to get comfortable with.
I know it seems like it should be a matter of choice,but when your getting payed millions of dollars to play, the guys paying have every right to protect you. Wouldn't you want to protect your investments?
Well by now they don't seem to protect their investments by letting them play in Europe because they lock them out. You know playing here in North America if something happen to a player it will take a few seconds the medic staff will be on the ice and take care of him, they will take him out on a stretcher instead of taking him out like a dead deer. What the players was saying when the plane crash in Russia, "we all know it was a matter of time before it happen". Are they really protecting their investments that way to save hockey teams in cities that should never been an hockey team?
Rich teams should they back the control of their league, by now Bettman have too much power because he only need 8 teams on his side, including the Phoenix Coyotes, to do almost whatever he want.
We have more than we think in common with ''Le Canadien de Montréal''
Both have logo shapped in ''C''
Canadien and Canucks mean the samething
We both hate the Boston Bruins now
Alain Vigneault coached both teams
Rogers Arena, Centre Bell, it's phones company
We are blue white and green they are blue white and red
Our #1 goalie is from Qc, their #1 goalie is from BC
But we have one important thing different and I hope it will change after the next season, we don't have Stanley Cup banner
