    I was very impressed with NMU. That friday game was the best I've seen them play in some time.

    Good sweep this weekend for the season series win over the kitties. These last six regular season games look to be the toughest of the year.

    Or give each team a 2 minute 5x3. Whoever has the most goals (including shorties) wins.

    I'm okay if there's no overtime and it's just called a tie. I'm also okay with whatever overtime format is used. I'll enjoy the game all the same.

    Life's too short to be yelling at the clouds.

    I'm not a fan of the 5 minute 5x5 as an attempt to resolve what 60 minutes of mostly 5x5 could not. Anything else is looked on as a gimmick. So I just try and enjoy whatever the league decides to use.

    My younger brothers and their kids aren't into hockey. Hockey ending in a tie, 3x3 OT with an added shootout for a winner is not why they don't like it. If you want to improve the approachability of hockey for new fans, expand the fanbase/fan experience, this isn't the way to do it. If anything it leads to more confusion from a new fan perspective as you have the potential of 2 additional mini-games required to determine a winner.

    I think they got rid of ties when teams would play ultra defensive for 60 minutes and walk away with a tie they didn't deserve. I'm not really a fan of 3x3 or of shootouts but a straight tie as often as it happened was really boring and was turning off the fans.

    I don't care how you package it. 3x3 sucks.
    Worried about player safety? (bull****) then do one 5 min OT and be done.
    No shoot-outs, no 2nd OT
    Of course, all that goes out the window during tourney time.
    The casual fan may not get it, the real fans want it the old way.
    How do we change it?

    I kinda like what Sergei Fedorov was doing in the KHL coaching CSKA Moscow. When they went into a 3x3 OT, he'd pull his goalie as soon as his team got the puck. They won at least 3 games that way when I watched them a while ago. It does mean you have to work on the 4x3 to prepare for sure.
    I read somewhere that this isn't done in the NHL because if you give up the empty netter, you lose your overtime point. Is the NHL rulebook really this overly-detailed, and fun-killing?

    Does Joe adjust the type of players Tech gets/dresses to make us better at 3x3/shootout? While it isn't a major part of the game, we have left 3 points on the table, this year, and who knows how many last year because we are terrible in 3x3 and shootout. I understand it OT isn't a major part of the game, but OT is not uncommon in hockey. Does Tech need to start treating 3x3/Shootout as another aspect of the game? I'm not proposing focusing on it like one would Faceoffs, PP, or PK, but it would be a good way to end practice with some 3x3 and shootouts.

    This is by no means a new development.

    Back in the early to mid 80s, the Edmonton Oilers made a killing on 4x4 and 3x3 situations. When you can make your three Gretzky, Kurri, and Coffey you can see why. Then the NHL got the idea for "coincidental" penalties to keep the Oilers from exploiting the situation. And somehow, a rule designed to temporarily stop one team in one league tricked down all the way to the lowest levels of hockey where it still exists today.
