    The speed the talent the grit the passion (ok not always passion if u think about Bonk)The rivalries the hatred the low prices (unless u live in Toronto) The heated battles the fights the fact that almost every player is likable and the Danton incident and Dany Heatley make front page news when ussually in other sports someone getting arrested is same old.

    Because of incidents such as the Felix Potvin vs Ron Hextal fight and the everybody on ice brawl between Colorado and Detroit. How many other sports r there where u can have a man flying at you to try 2 put u threw rock hard boards. Its a fast game, and a tough game.

  5. NYR-Rangers says:

    thats all u have to say?? look at mine and see wat i came up with

  6. dkball7 says:

    The perfect mix of skill, grit, passion, toughness, and heart. Plus the fact that its so dam cool.

    Theres nothing else like going to a live hockey game. It beats all other sports in that respect.

    HOCKEY RULES.

  7. Keith_Tkachuk07 says:

    Well.. I could write up a huge paragraph on why hockey is the best sport ever.. But i would just be summing up what everyone has said before me previously.. There are so many good reasons as to why hockey is so great.. Too many to list, but the majority have been named in the past comments above..

    Bubbles out…….

  9. trailerparkboys says:

    Are baskettball players talented ? um yeah, Are football players talented ? Word, Are baseball players talented ? Damm straight !!!!!

    Can they do it while skating ?

    Bubbles out

  10. Amcan says:

    Hockey is the most challanging to play. You need skating skills a lot of periphial vision, and very excellent hand eye. Hockey is not the most entertaining though. I enjoy watching a football game more than a hockey game. Perhpaps because my favorite team is the Rangers, but idk. And if you wanted a good response, a hockey trade rumors place is not where you get it!

  11. MightyJortikka says:

    Passion, pure passion.

  12. NHLman says:

    The most technical reason would be the complexity of ice skating (which not many people can do very efficiently) while trying to shoot a small piece of rubber into a net being guarded by some guy wearing mamouth pads. However, the real reason I would say for hockey being the best sport is the grace. Sure fights are entertaining, but the true game is one of grace. Hockey is graceful.

  13. wheresthesoda says:

    a lot of you people are saying doing it on skates and ice is what makes it so much better and that its so much harder, but when these players have been doing it there entire life, it doesnt matter, they probaly think its easier 2 do on skates so u can go faster, i find playing hockey on skates is a hell lot easier

  14. starsgirl25 says:

    i love the speed of the game and how fast it changes, the passion of the players(well the ones that truely love the game and aren’t in it for the money). the toughness and the grit that you see in some players, in others it’s the ability to make a play out of nothing or score the most beautiful goals. the goalies who make the hardest saves look like it was easy.

    not to mention, working with a hockey team makes you love the sport even more, the coaches, officials, players, front office staff are all usually really cool people.

  15. chanman says:

    Hockey has the highest talent level. There are just hundreds of kids trying to make the bigs, but the talent is so high and there are only so many roster spots. These guys work out all year long(not that some other major sports dont, ) and comparativly speaking, they play for less money than a NFl or MLB or NBAer, and put a heckuv a lot more into thier job.

    82 games of beating your body into other people, glass and boards is just not fun sometimes.As most have described, it is the most physical, highly dangerous, and extremly difficult to master. I love the sound of pucks hitting metal, bouncing off glass, and creaming someone along the boards. Nothing compares.

  16. Pavel_Bure_NYR says:

    1st I say There is no game with non stop action like hockey to the exeption of basketball.

    Then I make a pont of saying how hockey includes htiing and fighting which no other sport has.

    Then I say how fun it is to actually play on ice.

    Then I talk about its rivals

    Basketball is good but too p*ssy

    soccer is too slow until they reach the box

    football has about 5 mins of actual action

    golf is a game not a sport

    baseball not only like watching grass grown but it is hitting a tiny balll with a large piece of lumber

  17. NYR-Rangers says:

    lol u were in sydney before??? or do u live here???

  18. NYR-Rangers says:

    i can play basket ball and baseball!!!! but i still like hockey better….. and u still never answered me question…. were u in sydney before??? or do u live here?

  19. trailerparkboys says:

    From parts unknown , I live in sunny vale trailer park just outside Halifax now.

    Bubbles out………

  20. NYR-Rangers says:

    playin hockey on skates is a lot easier…. did u ever play road hockey with a road hockey puck instead of a ball??? there hard to shoot and the stick to the ground!!! tinnis balls are good except when ur running up on a break away and gets left behind because it sticks to the ground…. whoever came up with puttin a blade and a shoe together and then go on ice.?…. i bet he tried to go the ground but it was winter time and there was a whole wack of ice around his house….. then he grabbed a stick for soe reason to try to brush the snow off his front step…… then some little kid came buy a biffed a ball at him….. then it dropped and he shot it back to the kid….. and the kid was between 2 tress that kinda looked like goal posts then it went through the little kid and for some reason the guy yelled I SCORED YAAAA WOOOOO!!!!

  21. NYR-Rangers says:

    ohhhhhhhh i went to halifax before…

  22. NYR-Rangers says:

    i play basket ball and baseball…. i almost got in a fight with one guy…… u know when the ball is in both players hands??? and they both pull on the ball as hard as they can???well we were evenly matched and no one won and the ref blew the whistle and we almost fought… wouldn’t it be cool to be suspended for a few games though??

  23. Phailak says:

    Speed of the game

    Playoffs format

    Talent required (skating, stick handling, slapshots, passes)

    Spectacular team and individual plays (nice passing plays or dekes)

    What’s bad!

    Referreing (no calls, bad calls, long faceoffs)

    TRAP!!!

  24. Enigma says:

    My reasons:

    1) It’s as Canadian as anything.

    2) The Stanley Cup – most beautiful trophy, arguebly the hardest to win.

    3) The hitting, the fighting. (when it’s clean and done fairly)

    4) The Iginla’s, Lemieux’s, Forsberg’s, Yzerman’s and Sakic’s of the league (in other words the superstars) All of whome (by the way) have class, unlike the Bond’s and Iverson’s of other leagues. Although I really like Shaq lol .

    5) The skill and passion that is needed to succeed.

    6) Tournaments like the world cup, and the Olympics.

    7) The fact that even in a hard fought playoff series each player still has the courtesy/decency to shake the oponents hand, even if deep down he doesn’t really want to. In no other major sport does that occur.

    8) The speed.

    9) It’s the only sport that allows players to be substituded on the fly, which means that just about every player on the bench can contribute equally. There are no “bench warmers”

    10) the sounds of the game (i.e. the puck hitting the post, the sound of skating on the ice, a player crashing into the boards) especially the goal horns (my personal favourite: washington’s).

  25. toto says:

    PROBABLY BECAUSE IT IS A PREDOMINANTLY WHITE SPORT AND THE POSSIBILITY OF A FOURTH RATE SOCIAL CLASS SUCH AS FEMALES, INFECTING THE SPORT ARE VIRTUALLY ZERO CONSIDERING THE HIGH DEGREE OF ATHLETICISM THAT WOMEN CAN NEVER COMPETE WITH. SOCCER DEFINITLEY RIVALS HOCKEY SIMPLY BECAUSE THERE IS NOTHING MORE SATISFYING THAN WATCHING THE WOP ITALIANS DROP, ROLL AND CRY LIKE A BUNCH OF BEATEN WOMEN EVERYTIME THEY LOSE, WHICH IS ALWAYS!

  28. NYR-Rangers says:

    how can people love soccar so much??? wats the point of the game?? u got a 10 foot wide net 6 feet over the golies head ur gonna score 9-10 times u try and on a menalty shot the only way for the golie to make a save is either stand there and hope the guy aimed for him or take a wild guess.

  29. toto says:

    same goes for baseball

    1 Hockey

    2 Football

    3basketball(Scoring 150 times in a game just bores me)

    4MLB Here is a sad yet true fact: there are only between 7-8 minutes of action in 9 innings of baseball. And did you know A-rod makes in 1 inning what the average american makes in 7 Months? is that sick or what.

    5 Nascar, vollyball, darts, tiddlywinks whatever.

    Hmm…..

    1.) Football – Performance-drug-laden genetic freaks line up a few inches from each other, knock each other down, get up, go talk about it, then do it again.

    2.) Basketball – Not a team sport. Period. And quit letting the high school kids in. Basketball is just a stepping stone you have to endure playing so you can get endorsement deals.

    3.) Baseball – Only 3 people are playing the majority of the time (pitcher, catcher, batter). Everyone else is standing around scratching their sack. And, people can go on the DL because they strained their back putting their cowboy boots on (or picking up their kid). Baseball was purposely designed to operate at a snail’s pace to sell hot dogs and beer.

    Most of what’s great about hockey has been listed, but let’s not forget that, in interviews and public appearances, hockey players are, by a wide margin, the most polite and humble of all athletes.

    What’s the first thing you hear out of a hockey player’s mouth when some witless commentator says, “Talk us through your goal”?

    Here’s a template for response (it doesn’t vary by much): ” So-and-so made a great pass, and I just threw it at the net, and was lucky it found its way in.”

    Try getting someone from the other “major” sports to talk like that. They’re not going to pass up the opportunity for shameless self-promotion…..
