Sharks Gameday: Sentencing

Joe Thornton uses his telekinesis to score a goal.


Today I'm in a bit of a rush, so I've decided to settle some of hockey's great debates with a single sentence each. I'm going to lay down the law: Meg's Law. That sounds catchy, right?

Here we go!

Issue #1: Shootouts.

Shootouts are exciting and prevent ties, so we should keep them.

 

Issue #2: The "loser point."

It was introduced to solve a problem that wasn't really that big a deal in the first place and now just annoys everybody, so we should get rid of it.

 

Issue #3: Fighting.

Fighting rules and if you don't like it I'll fight you.

 

Issue #4: The Chara-Pacioretty hit.

There was little that was "dirty" about the hit so I'm fine with no suspension, but it does seem odd since the league has scaled punishments to fit injuries before.

 

Issue #5: Sometimes bloggers get lazy or can't think of something to write about and just throw together some half-assed BS at the last minute.

This is a deeply shameful practice.

 

Now it's your turn! Share your thoughts on any of these issues - or others - in the comments. But remember - you only get one sentence to make your point! Oh - and if you think you're being clever by just having a bunch of commas and creating a giant run-on sentence then you should probably try getting over yourself, James Joyce.

Prediction: Sharks win 3-2 in OT, with goals from Couture, Clowe, and Marleau.
