Oiler fan:                    "Renewed seasons tickets last week"

Anyone else ever:      "Snagged a Coiler eh?"

Well here in Vic we pump our sewage straight into the straight. 

 

Whenever I'm halibut fishing and we get snagged on the bottom: 

 

"Fish on?"

 

"Nope, snagged a Coiler"

How about all teams that miss the playoffs get the same odds.  They each get one ball in the lotto, and that's it.  then there is no reason to tank.  

This is how it should be. If you don't make the playoffs you have a chance at 1st overall. Pick for all 14 spots. Same odds for all teams and it must be done live and televised for transparency.

Crap Coho run here last year. Caught a 68 lb Cam Talibut just off Pedder Bay though.

One issue with paying guys to play in the hunger games might be, why do they get paid when teams competing for the Cup don't? 

 

Under that format these's a chance we see the bottom playoff teams tanking so that they can play for money rather than get bounced in 5 games

Give them a regular salary. It would be part of their responsibilities as a player. To play in the HUNGER GAMES ::D

Yeah, but some teams miss the playoffs by 1 point, or are tied in points but less wins, whereas some teams miss the playoffs by 20+points.

 

The need to attempt to keep the league competitive outweighs the need to reduce tanking.

 

I personally like the Oilers rule, I think it would do a better job of both improving the league parity & reducing tank incentives.

Personally, I think the NHL should gather the captains of all the 14 non playoff teams together and hold a WWE royal rumble style pay per view...winner picks 1st, runner up 2nd and so on.

 

in other news, Henrik steps down as captain at Tryamkin is named the new captain.

Trusted people should be there live too.  Maybe even have someone NOT INVOLVED with hockey choosing the ping pong balls too?  I see fourteen numbered balls in the machine:1-14.  inside each ball is a team's name.  First one drawn, gets pick 14, and so on, until the end.  The last one drawn is first.  It's simple, fair, and gives no favour to one team - so no point to tank.
