    I hate it. Stupid rule, remove it from the NHL, too.

    If two teams are equally good in a game, or a goalie comes up huge to keep his team in the game, why can't the game end with a tie? Stupid. Just plain stupid.

    Why shouldn't two teams both get Olympic gold? Or a Stanley Cup? Because the whole point of sport is to win.

    If you're serious with that post, I'll have to explain my point.
    Please let me know ASAP.
     
  5. He's right. One team should win over the other. That's what sports is about. ties are stupid.

    In playoff games, yes. During the regular season, no.

    well vikke has a point and i agree with him
     
  8. I don't agree. The best winners should be in the playoffs, not the ones who loses the least.

    Doesn't WC qualify as play-offs? The team that wins it plays a total of what, 9 games?

    No, the round robin does not count as playoffs in my opinion.
    Playoff games are games where a winner HAS to be decided.

    I like the idea. It will make the round robin games much more interesting. I just wonder if the losing team will still get a point?

    :cry: Oh no, not facking penalty shots again :shakehead

    The stupidest idea ever in hockey.

    Why copy everything from the nhl, like everything they do is the best thing.

    The game was fine the way it was, why does it have to be "enhanced" artifically with something that has no place in a hockey game. :shakehead

    I hate god damn panalty shots, damn you Bettman for bringing this stupidity upon us :madfire:

    Whats next IIHF? Effin laser-pucks? :dunno:

    This news saddens me, what would it look like if someone decided we don't need any ties in soccer for example?

    The IIHF gets dumber day by day. Coming up with terrible rules, regulations etc. They (the old committee) got to be removed, and new faces have to be put put in charge.

    Actually, the nhl wasn't first with the penalty shot. We tested it here in sweden a couple of years ago. But it wasn't a success, so we changed it back. Didn't they test in euro hockey tour a while back also?

    They didn't just test it, it's a common thing in European leagues and international tournaments.


    One thing I absolutely hate, is when people blame Bettman for things he has absolutely no control over :shakehead

    Hockeys countries.. Depends on what you define as a hockeys country. A country where hockey is played? Then yes.

    As a Swiss dentist being the head, I've never been too confident. As he has done nothing but strengthen this position I have of him.

    People in the council from Japan, Austria, Great Britain, Germany and Spain for gods sake!

    Just check the development committee, out of 5 members, 3 are from non-traditional hockeys countries. One of them is from Serbia Montenegro!

    Now I'm all for spreading the message of hockey all over the world, but when there are people who really don't always seem to be that intelligent on matters concerning hockey, I don't feel that confident.

    Of course you can always counter with that leaders are never fully abreciated, or that I should do things better myself if I know how, but then again those are not good arguementative points. Not saying mines are either, though.

    Fasel has rarely looked further that a year or two away when he has made these weird decisions. Don't think he has given deep thought to this either..

    I don't get it, no ties and 3 pts for the win? Does it mean that overtime loss is worth 1 point?

    Agreed.

    Just somebody from either Russia, Sweden, Finland etc. Switzerland is good in hockey but it doesnt have such a tradition as in Finland for example.

    I was just thinking during this year's tournament that it's nice to have ties again and I didn't see why they thought they had to get rid of them.
