wanting to know if you really miss it was not what i was getting at. just wanting to know if other areas of north america are doing something to pass the time with the absence of the nhl.]]>
It helps to have access to sites like this and to be able to have access to the Hamilton Bulldogs games on the web ( by the way, there will be some televised Bulldogs games too – & St. Johns, Edmonton & Manitoba). I also get to follow some of the other Canadiens prospects through a variety of websites and OHL games.
Most of all though, it helps to have other interests – a life beyond NHL hockey.
A bit off-topic and in a bit of a meandering spirit, I’m quite ready to wait a year or two (or even more) if it’ll actually help the game in the long run. By help the game, I mean that some teams will actually have to fold and that there will be a dispersal draft (like in the days of the Cleveland Barons, Atlanta Flames, California Golden Seals, etc.
That would help an awful lot with the present watered-down talent that contributes to so much mediocre play.
It might even be a catalyst to lead those in charge to actually make some changes to the game that would make it more exciting and interesting (especially to those who are already excited and interested in the game).
But I have to confess that I won’t really hold my breath on this (especially the second part – the changes in the game itself). I have already been a proponent of contraction of the league but, here again, we’ll see.
Miss hockey…? No, not really. There’s still a lot going on. Miss the NHL…? no, not really. There’s more to life than that.
