In Topic: Devils getting rid of R&R part 2 as their goal song?

07 October 2013 - 06:56 AM

Again if it is all about the song then that's fine. However I bet if the devils management said they will bring the song back on the condition that fans stop the you suck chant, most would balk at that idea.

It's all about a bunch of teens, twenty-something's and some man-children who are throwing a tantrum because they can't yell you suck to the other team.


This elitist crap is what's annoying about this debate. Stop pretending you're more mature than everyone who disagrees with you. It's untrue, insulting, and, quite frankly, immature.


My parents are a pair of military/civil service retirees who are morally conservative and volunteer at their church every Sunday. At the home opener when Bon Jovi played instead of RnR Pt. 2, my mother leaned over and said "What happened to 'Hey! You suck!'? That was always so much fun!" Thank you for repeatedly calling them immature 20-somethings throughout this thread, just because they enjoy doing something that's completely harmless but you, for some reason, take personal offense to.


It isn't this at all.  Do Rangers fans start chanting Marty immediately during their goal song?  Serenading goalies is fine, mocking opponents is fine, just save it for some time after a goal is scored.


Not the best example. Rangers fans sometimes start their Marty taunt before the opening faceoff, and frequently before the first shot on goal is tallied, let alone a goal scored.

In Topic: NHL Approves Hybrid Icing '13-14

The problem with icing is that you have two players racing to touch a puck first.  With hybrid icing, from the dots in, assuming icing is waved off, it's no different from a normal dump in from the red line.  We don't see players getting blown up on those that often, both forwards and D know how to play those well.  In this scenario both players slow up when icing is waved off, and one guy probably doesn't try to blow up the other.


OK, so no matter what, the footrace will never again play out the way it used to? It will either be blown dead or waived entirely based on the linesman's judgement call of who would reach the puck first based on where the players are when they cross the dots?

I don't see any benefit from this. Like leeski said, dangerous plays like the Pitkanen video above would play out the exact same way since the players would be close enough that the refs would opt to allow the footrace rather than blow it dead.


Am I missing something?
