Clearly A Better Game

from the Vancouver Sun,
If you can't see that we're watching a vastly improved game -- faster, every bit as physical, and with endless possibilities for comebacks that simply didn't exist two years ago -- it's time to pull your heads out of your ... uh, collars. "It's clear to all of us that the game is a lot better," Edmonton Oilers coach Craig MacTavish said Friday. "I think the one question mark was, were we going to revert back to the clutching and grabbing tactics that always framed the NHL playoffs?""And that's been answered pretty clearly. At times, as coaches, we complain about the number of calls, and the marginal calls, and what's called and what's not ... but the bottom line is that it has made the game itself better.
