    I anchor SportsCenter late on Saturdays and Sundays. Air Max 270 Flyknit Homme . I usually get to sleep around 4 a.m. on both nights. This past Sunday I woke up at 11 a.m. (I average 4-6.5 hours of sleep a night) and saw the following tweet:Bob works for the Elias Sports Bureau. (Patrik Elias has no known connection with Elias as far as you know.)This is not a surprise. Scoring will never be what it was before, and the reasons are clear:1. The skating pool is only getting quicker and deeper.Everyone skates so well that time and space continue to dwindle. A potential scoring play is often broken up by an outreached stick from a player able to close quickly. The world is training players better and at a younger age, which has resulted in a deep pool of speed and agility. Also, improved and safer equipment, along with coaches and teammates demanding defense, has resulted in an epidemic of shot blocking.Possible solution: I really believe making all power plays 4-on-3 is one way that wouldnt offend (some) or dent the traditions of the game that some understandably hold dear. This would allow for more time and space, possibly less shot blocking and a higher power-play percentage. What it also would do is allow for occasional 3-on-3 time when the team on the power play takes a penalty. Also, when a power play ends, you have 4-on-4 time until the next whistle. This would allow just a few more opportunities of open ice for players to make plays without getting stick-checked or a shot-blocked.2. Goalies are only getting better with a deeper pool.This has been going on for a few years, but there are hordes of goaltending talent on the way. Goalies are getting coached at a very young age by very good coaches. They understand playing the odds to increase the chances of the puck hitting them, they have sound and smart positioning, and they know how to train for agility. Add hockey sense, size and natural athleticism, and it is hard to score goals from high school on up.Possible solution: Goalies have to remain safe and the equipment must offer full protection. However, there is room to make equipment smaller. You cant pour Cinnamon and Spice Instant Oatmeal in the crease to slow down the goalies, so the only answer to boost offense just a little would be a larger net to shoot at.3. The net remains the same size.Goalies are bigger and better. Equipment is bigger and safer, eliminating the fear factor goalies had until around the mid-1990s. When offense suffered, baseball lowered the mound and made ballparks a little smaller. Football rewrote pass interference. Basketball eliminated hand checking and added the 3-point line. This made it more difficult to defend. Hockey hasnt done this. They dont think offense. They think defense. For some reason, thinking offense in hockey makes you a freak.Possible solution: Following through on pledges of smaller equipment would increase the open net area by a little, as stated above. But if there is a hesitance to do that because of possible injury, then just increase the size of the net a fraction. It would mean that those posts and crossbars you hear would turn into goals. Why is this so offensive? The game is nothing like it was in the 1930s, 40s, 50s, 60s, etc. Records never really matter much because the game changes so much over time.Yes, the game of hockey is fine. I love watching it on TV and I love going to games. I actually think the lower scoring and lack of fighting and big open-ice hits has hurt the at-the-game experience more than the TV experience. Today, you can attend a game that is 2-1 or 3-2 with no fights, no open-ice hits and few get-out-of-your-seat moments.Many games are saved or extremely augmented by the hair-on-fire 3-on-3 experience. Those overtimes are all offense, instinct and no overcoaching to put a drag on the excitement. I would just like to re-create those moments a little bit more during regulation and get a little more offense in the game. What is wrong with more 6-4 games? Thats basically a 42-28 football game. Is that an obscene football score?Competition for entertaining continues to grow. We want our game to be fun, to be talked about, to have a strong word-of-mouth essence. We want it to matter and have the great talent to shine on a nightly basis.Thats it. My yearly Lets get more offense blogumn.As you were. As I was. Air Max 98 Gundam . But what about the officials? Every sport has officials and they also have stories about hard work and sacrifice but their accomplishments are seldom recognized by anyone outside their inner circle. Vans Sk8 Hi Reissue .ca! Kerry, Two nights after the Scott-Eriksson incident in Buffalo, the Bruins returned home to play San Jose. In that game, Zdeno Chara put a check on Tommy Wingels that clearly targeted his head. . Calgary scored on the first shift, and Michael Cammalleri scored twice as the Flames cruised to a 5-2 win over the Washington Capitals on Saturday. KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- Florida cornerback Quincy Wilsons unusual reference to predict the Gators will beat Tennessee for a 12th straight time hasnt riled up the Vols.Have you ever seen a duck pull a truck? Wilson said while referring to Floridas winning streak over Tennessee. Ducks dont pull trucks. Nobody has ever seen a duck pull a truck. Florida Gators are going to win, simple as that.Gators coach Jim McElwain said Wednesday hed only heard bits and pieces of Wilsons comment. The 19th-ranked Gators (3-0, 1-0 SEC) are 6 +-point underdogs in Saturdays game at No. 14 Tennessee (3-0, 0-0).Hey, look, these guys are who they are, McElwain said during the Southeastern Conference coaches teleconference. Im not into, you know, censorship. And you know, he better go back it up, I guess, whatever he said.McElwain was asked if hed ever seen a duck pull a truck.Thats a classic right there, McElwain said of Wilsons comment Ive got to find out what the heck that means. But I guess I have watched an Aflac commercial, but Ive never seen that duckk do it, so I dont know. Vans Slip On Homme. Tennessee coach Butch Jones says he didnt plan on saying much to his team about Wilsons comment.I dont pay attention to it, Jones said. Thats just clutter and distractions. Im more concerned about preparation. They have a lot of confidence, and very deservedly so. ... In todays world of social media, I dont have to blow that up.NOTE: Jones said offensive tackle Chance Hall is good to go for Saturdays game. Hall, who started Tennessees final seven games at right tackle last season, hasnt played all season after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery last month. ... Jones also said he anticipates linebacker Jalen Reeves-Maybin will play Saturday. Reeves-Maybin strained a shoulder muscle last week in a 28-19 victory over Ohio.---AP Sports Writer Mark Long in Gainesville, Florida, contributed to this report.---Online: AP College Football website Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
