Tightening The Screws

from Damien Cox of the Toronto Star,

Now we head into the third post-lockout season, uncertain what the NHL will deliver other than a novelty outdoors game in Buffalo on Jan. 1 that it seems to believe will somehow sell the sport.

There’s a plethora of young, exciting sharpshooters around the league, but it’s unclear whether the game will be played and officiated in a manner that will allow them to flourish.

With fighting and defence on the rise, it appears more and more that the thrilling 2005-06 season was just a blip, a brief moment in the long history of the sport with the game played as one imagined it could be before they tightened the screws on it again.
