Buyer beware

The trade deadline is the passion that divides us all. The various NHL clubs are spit into Buyers and sellers. In theory the buyers get a short term jolt into their lineup for a stanely cup run (short term gain) while giving up picks and prospects to the sellers (long term gain).

However, I have always believed that buyers lose much more often then thay win.

Time For Change in the New NHL

Some recent events have prompted talk of some rule changes needed to not only improve the game itself but the safety of the players.

The decline in scoring has been of concern to the league. The big boost in offence soon after the lockout has gone by the wayside and a lack of goals and offence continues to succumb to air tight defence.

Also of concern is the rash of serious head injuries. Hitting from behind, dangerous headshots and just an overall lack of respect is something that the league seems resistant to solve to avoid, as Mike Milbury puts it, “pansyfication” of the game.
