Like I said, I don't have to like it. Things change. I don't have to adapt to everything. This is what needs to be done to attract who? Families? People who don't know the game at all? Just like with TV shows, a subset of the population is catered to. I have accepted that I don't belong in the subset. I am still entitled to having an opinion.
I stopped my season tickets in 2001 and it broke my heart. I haven't been to the Rock and probably never will. I am so glad I don't have money to go to games. I understand what they are trying to accomplish but the pricing logic just befuddles me.
Umm, I mean what exactly do you want here? They are trying to lessen the gimmicky shootouts with 3-on-3. So you want ties? Well, maybe you would enjoy that, but the game is trying to grow, and ties are not conducive to that.
Shootouts, yes a gimmick. 4 on 4 well I got used to it however I never really liked it. 3 on 3??? I find this to be a gimmick. I never minded ties. Don't want ties them why not play until someone scores? Good enough for the playoffs but not good enough for the regular season? The standings were more accurate of a team's performance. Extra time, no problem. Changing the game to the point that it doesn't resemble hockey isn't for me. Look at the points a player has currently. They shrink every time a change is made. Don't like that Brodeur was a good puck handling goalie so let's cut down on that ability. Let's change offsides. Let's change everything. We need more scoring and we don't need enforcers. It is just a bit much for me. I cannot stop the changes but I don't have to like them either.
