Much of the skill has been drained out of the game, to be sure.  And the more teams you add, the more watered down it will get.

Coach the game you want to see, Alex.

I can’t tell you how much I don’t give a damn what any former NHLer thinks of the current game.

yes it often is excruciating to watch. the playoffs were more exciting, to be sure. but, i do recall watching one game in which there wasn’t a shot for over ten minutes. just get it into the zone, then grind on the boards. and the goaltending by committee is so frustrating as well. i’ve mostly tuned out over the past couple years because the game is as bad as it is. i’m sure i’m not the only lifelong fan who doesn’t really appreciate where the game is now.
