according to the score, "Nhl to introduce four line challenge" for the all star game. it just sounds like a long-distance accuracy competition. why does the nhl hate fun? why does the nhl hate its fans? why won't the nhl just give the people what they want?
i really just am angry that they took out the one creative component. i mean the biggest event is always the hardest shot competition. but who goes in like “can’t wait for the accuracy comp”??? like people like the hardest shot because you can always break the record and it’s all about Shea trying to beat Chara. But literally someone got 4/4 with the accuracy comp before and like it’s just okay people cna only match that??? the breakaway challenge was really not like the NHL at all so i’m not surprised but…like i think it was Kypreos who said only 8 year olds and friedman will miss it and it’s like…but bruh…it’s the 8 year olds that are going to be fans their whole life. it’s the 8 year olds who are gonna decide to change the channel to a basketball game because he never got to see the players do anything actually cool. but whatever the NHL is more concerned with like fucking gatekeeping their audience as opposed to entertaining them.
