Well guys, its been real, but I think I have finally reached the breaking point where I am shutting off the NHL for a few weeks. Been watching since the early 80's, and, the state of the game is just such crap I find myself not enjoying it right now. Finishing the game tonight, then probably going ghost mode for the rest of the month.

I love a good, hard hockey game as much as the next guy, but repeated cheap shots after whistles with refs turning a blind eye, and the inability to literally determine what is a penalty and what is not a penalty anymore is just disgusting. Very sad that the NHL lets the game be run this way, that the mentality is still "I can punch you in the head after the whistle, but if you slash me in retaliation to said punch only you go to the box." Saddens me even more that there is nothing I can do about it, and turning off my favorite game is about the only option I have.

19 years of living out of Pittsburgh, paid for Center Ice every single year, and probably watch 95% of the games every year. Time to re-evaluate where I spend my money. Sucks......not happy.

Subban falls down. Guentzel gets a breakaway goal. Nice .

Good energy to start the third. And Jake caps it off. Keep going boys.

I wish you would reconsider FLPensFan, I really enjoy reading your posts.

I know it's early in the season still, but it seems like sone of the stars on this team should maybe start working a little harder.

I’d say every single star except Malkin and Murray need to play significantly better.

I feel the same way. However it's still better than the NFL. Gave up on that a few years ago. 50 years of watching and had no idea what was a catch and what wasn't anymore. NHL is definitely frustrating, but still best game, if not league, by far.

Nope only because he might find a way to hit me with a shot instead of the net.

I don’t think Sheary with Malkin has been fully explored.

Great time for a TV timeout. We needed the break more than the child predators.

Yeah, I hope it's just a pacing strategy or something given that these guys know what a long season demands. I'll give them the benefit of the doubt, but it's frustrating as fans given what we're used to seeing. Im sure it'll turn around soon though. Keep the faith!

Yeah I think it was him and Sutter and Pouliot was the draft pick.
