I was asking in the Chat room an Idea for a blog when my favorite blogster scoop (sorry Ek) gave me idea of a hockey conversation from my son so here is the first one of maybe many depending on how many he would like to do.
Today blog is on what is wrong with Hockey
Flamestr: alright Dougstr what is wrong with hockey
Slashing penalties in the face Players are not careful with the stick , to many penalties with players not knowing what there sticks can do. They think they can get away with it, they don't have respect for each other they are willing to do anything to win.
Flamestr Okay that's one how about another
When they fight sometimes they get injured, for example Ignla getting injured with Allen in Florida. I think there is to much violence in hockey, Because kids like myself copy what the real NHL players do thinking its alright.
What can be done to stop the violence of hockey
if the player get hurt for the rest of the year then the player who causes the injury should not be allowed to play for the rest of the year.
Thanks everyone if you have anymore questions that you would like to know from the Dougstr I will let him know, I really think Violence in Hockey has gone a little to far and coming from 8 year old point of view so does he. The most compelling argument that is the copy of the players. Thank you everyone for you time
Dougstr and Flamestr
I like the idea of having the puishment match the injury. The NHL certainly has issues when a stick on a glove is a penalty but ramming a guys head with your shoulder is not.
thanks for saying my writing was good jergreen Dougstr
Dougstr,Being a youth coach, it is always good to hear a younger perspective on the game.Two questions for you:1) What is your favorite thing about hockey?2) What do you think is the best way to get more kids interested in playing?Look forward to hearing from you.
Nice blog Dougstr! You have a growing fanbase now. I'm all for punishing the high sticks and the injuries, I like your idea. Keep those ideas rolling, and we'll have you replacing Bettman in no time!
Why stop at commissioner of the NHL? Dougster for Prime Minister!! :D
Any time your son wants to write my column for me, just let me know!
Congratulations on your first blog, Dougstr! Nice job. You and the Flamestr are a good team. It is interesting to learn your perspective on the game, and I'm looking forward to hearing more of your thoughts in the future. Thanks!!
Great job Dougstr! Can I ask, do you watch Coaches Corner and if so what is your opinion on Don Cherry's comments?
