    If you need it explained to you, you wouldn’t understand anyway.

    I think this is where teams like the Canes and Vikings got it from.

    No fun league.

    This such a wholesome way to get the fans engaged by the Canes.

    Well, I guess I’m in the minority then.. but, that’s ok. I think it’s embarrassing. Glad everyone seems to like it.

    Embarrassing why ? It's not shoving it in their opponents faces for a regular season win or legitimately being so happy about one win.

    It's something they came up for the fans, and trying to create a more fun culture. The feeling around the team has been so negative the last few years and there's been tons of empty seats. At the end of the day it's all about entertainment.

    In hockey you’re supposed to be slightly ashamed when you score a goal or win, so I can see how this might be triggering.

    Is there a significant Icelandic/Scandinavian population in North Carolina?

    Nothing wrong with it but if you look at it like Justin Williams is in the locker room before the game telling everyone they're gonna use their sticks like they're rowing a kayak then it's kinda weird

    So true.

    This is good for hockey. They're not just robots that are either good or bad at the corsi.

    Like it. It's weird but it looks like everyone is having fun out there. Sport could use some silliness sometimes.

    The dinosaurs will hate it, but it's fun. I get taking things seriously but at the end of the day you're playing a game and as spectators we want to be entertained. I doubt this does much for people that are already big time NHL fans but for the younger generation I bet it's something that does make a difference for them.

    A little weird, but if the players and fans like it then good for them.

    It's a common thing to celebrate a victory at home like this in european sports. At least we did in hockey/soccer in Sweden. Not all the time and all ages. But sometimes.
