Your Hockey Thanks And No-Thanks....

October 8, 2018, 12:44 PM ET [36 Comments]
Happy Thanksgiving Canada!

As per usual its fun at Canadian and American Thanksgiving to sit at the table and say a few things your are Thankful for....and a few things you could do without...I will start it off, then we will go around the table to hear your thoughts...

I am thankful for:

The new era of superstars.

I grew up in the 80’s with Gretzky, Lemieux, Messier, Hawerchuk, Yzerman and the rest....Then we went about 20 years with some great players, star players, but not really many superstars...there were a few, but not all at once... Selanne, Lindros, Pronger, etc...

But now we have a legit league-wide superstar invasion...Crosby, Malkin, McDavid, Matthews, Eichel, MacKinnon, and soon Jack Hughes....this is a wonderful time to be a hockey fan!

I am not thankful for:

The Trapezoid behind the net. I still think it’s ridiculous that a goalie can't handle the puck anywhere....the further out a goalie handles it the more excitement can occur. We are trying to fix a problem that really never was...

I am thankful for:

NBC in the States and the NBC Sportsnetworks who have given hockey a real home that ESPN never did...

I am NOT thankful for:

Preseason hockey games....They are ridiculous...each team should have at max 3...

I am VERY thankful for...

MY JOB and all of you visiting and making the Hockeybuzz community the best on the internet...

So what are you thankful for?
