Death of Tradition

I visit this site everyday, even though I disagree with many of the opinions posted here. I don’t post much, partly because of that, but also because I’m slow to get to the news. That’s why I’m surprised no one has said anything about this yet.

Bruins experiment with rules changes

“Bruins bosses Harry Sinden and Mike O’Connell a few weeks ago called up the entire Providence Bruins squad to Boston, essentially tossed the rule book in the trash can, altered the lines on the ice, and looked for new ways to open up the game. The most radical alteration was moving the blue lines closer to the nets, in theory creating smaller offensive zones.

Wow Baseball Season Preview

But if you’re like me you watch more then one sport, which brings me to the reason I’m doing this article. As you may or may not know the new MLB season is getting close. I’m an admin on Wow Baseball and we are looking at/hoping to do a HTR style season preview.

Devil's Advocate: Goodenow is right, Bettman is wrong

And finally, a ridiculous story reported by member adambuffalo.
