    Drives me nuts how often certain words get thrown around, so let's start a list of words not to use anymore


    #1 Offsides: it's offside singular
    #2 Generational: these players come around once in a while, not every year
    #3 Franchise Player: this isn't EA
    #4 Celly: this one just bothers me, no other reason

    I 100% agree with you on #1. Drives me crazy too. Glad you said it.

    Intangibles.

    Most contributions can be measured. We just don’t have the stats yet to do it.
    I’d take prime Toews because he shut down other teams top players and scored key goals in the playoffs.

    Is this like a recent hockey thing? Like 2014 recent? I've been involved in sports and on this board for a long time and never had I heard the word "celly" other than here on hfboards. I almost want to say it has it's origin here especially given that it seems like such a forced and extremely silly abbreviation

    Some would say the OP's views are offsides, but I personally celly his opinion. A generational take from a franchise poster if I've ever seen one.

    Offsides might make more sense though? It’s what seems to be in common usage, and if you think about it like “two sides of the line, he is on the wrong side, he is off on his sides”.. either way, it’s never bugged me. Most of these seem silly, generational is the only one that’s actually a problem and that’s just because it’s become half a meme here on HF.

    idk about fans, but I think NHL players need to remove "you know" from their vocabulary.

    I use Offside, but it is important to know in the USA hockey rule book uses and calls it Offsides.

    Taught some Cali hockey kids and it was definitely a term with them, but so was pretty much everything else. So it’s OP hating on the slang used by the young’uns, yeah.

    Yes, if we could all agree to leave this in the dustbin of history, I think it'd do everyone a bit of good.

    Also, if we could stop talking up terrible players by mentioning that they're good "in the room," that'd be great. There have to be better ways of saying they benefit team chemistry than that.

    For me, it's not really fans it's commentators who continuously say Apples for assists.
    I think that's utterly ridiculous.

    Hearing a player with 1 goal and 3 apples is bothersome to me.
    Wonder what G word will catch on to replace goals. 1 Gravy and 3 apples?
    Just stop with this nonsense already.

    "BPA" when talking about drafting. Literally means nothing since none of us know the organizations lists.

    All the various words that don't really mean anything concrete and are used to justify seemingly nonsense opinions: intangibles, enigmatic, truculence, ainec, generational, etc.

    I mean that's a good list but is it generational?

    One I think that should be added is Left D and Right D as a position.
