I don't agree with Sherry Ross all that often, but the canned fighting at beginning of the games is an absolute embarrassment. It's the last Devils/Rangers game of the season, and I don't think they'd pull this crap if they meet up in the playoffs. Still, this is one of those instances where fines are necessary.
oh please Daniel, the fans LOVE this. It's a part of the game. Don't like it...go watch golf or synchronized swimming
No, I hope people keep buying the fakes. The NHL made a super scumbag money grab with this whole RBK/Edge crap. They totally jacked up the price of jerseys...the price of authentics went way up, even the price of replicas went up but the quality of replicas have gone down. You used to be able to get pretty much exactly what the players wore on the ice for a decent price, sewn on name, logo etc. Now "replicas" have the name pressed on and that garish ugly RBK box logo on the lower right of the jersey...this was done by design "oh you want the real thing with the stitching and all...$275" well you used to get almost the real thing (just no fight strap) for like $60.
So keep it up, keep buying fakes. Great value, and they look very close to the real thing. Keep putting pressure on the league and they'll be forced to lower prices to compete. That's where these desperation tactics like the one's montreal is employing come from.
