[E. Kane] "I hope that every single Hockey player, Fan, Media member, GM, Owner, Parent and young player read this.

My opinion on all the anti-racism statements, as a black hockey fan
This is just my viewpoint, and I would like to hear everyone else's opinions, whether you are black, white, or anything in-between.
Personally I am appreciative of all the statements individual players and organizations are making about George Floyd and Black Lives Matter. It makes me happy to know that people do care about the black community and the racism we face. I wholeheartedly agree with Evander Kane, the more people that speak out, the better. Yes, many of the posts are similar and the black squares are low effort, but we will not achieve anything by telling people they didn't say or do enough. The problem is the racists, not the people making low effort posts in support of the black community. I just hope people do not just post these statements of support as a trend, and try to do more in the future.
The only problem I have is people getting angry on Twitter saying "how could this person not say anything, that says a lot about them". In particular, I've seen many people ge

The coach grimaced as he watched his young ice hockey team. At one point during the game, he called one of his 7-year-old players aside and asked, "Do you understand what cooperation is? What a team is?" The little boy nodded affirmatively...
"Do you understand that what matters is not whether we win or lose, but how we play together as a team?"
The little boy nodded once more.
"So..." the coach continued. "I'm sure you know that when a penalty is called, you shouldn't argue, curse, attack the referee, or call him a pecker-head. Do you understand all that?"
Again the little boy nodded.
He continued, "And when I call you off the ice so that another boy gets a chance to play, it's not good sportsmanship to call your coach a dumb asshole, is it?"
The little boy nodded yet again.
"Good." said the coach. "Now go over there and explain all that to your mother."

Previously, hockey was believed to be the national game.
The query was filed by a class-VII student, Aishwarya Parashar. Aishwarya had sought information on a government order pertaining to India’s national game. She had filed a RTI query with the information officer at the Prime Minister’s Office in May this year.
She had also requested information on India’s national bird, national anthem, national symbol, national flower and national animal. While she received information about the national anthem and national symbol, rest of the queries were referred to the ministries concerned.
The Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports, in its reply a few days back, said the ministry has not declared any sport the national game. The information was sent to Aishwarya by the additional secretary in the Sports Ministry, Shiv

I am amazed how many hockey players have no idea what skate profiling is...
One of the biggest things you can change in your equipment to help your skating is profiling your skates. Yet in the locker room when I ask what profile people are using, half the time they think I'm talking about how sharp their skates are or they have no idea what I'm talking about...
Skate “Profiling” involves changing the shape of the skate blade to help a player maximize their skating potential. Profiling is also referred to as rockering, radiusing, contouring, and body-balance contouring.
If you don't know what profiling is start here:
Here is a chart of different types of profiles: https://modsquadhockey.com/forums/topic/72537-prosharp-profile-template-list/
I have used 13', 11', 9' and quad 0.5. All of them totally change your game. The quad 0.5 is amazing for me.

I used Franchise Hockey Manager to make Crosby a Capital and Ovi a Penguin. Strange and terrifying things happened.
The Crosby/Ovechkin rivalry helped define a generation of hockey. While arguably exaggerated for the sake of creating a storyline, there’s no denying that both players gave the sport some desperately needed attention after an entire year was lost to a lockout. Combined, they’ve won four Cups, five Hart trophies, three Art Ross trophies, 10 Rocket Richard trophies, and many other accolades while putting up 2,427 regular season points and winning over countless fans. It’s hard to imagine what hockey would look like today without the contribution of these two men. Both players have also shaped their respective franchises for well over a decade… so let’s horrify Pittsburgh and Washington supporters by making Crosby a lifelong Capital and Ovi a lifelong Penguin. Will using Franchise Hockey Manger’s Historical Mode to alter the very fabric of reality have disturbing consequences? Let’s find out!

Who are some overrated hockey players?
What's the worst/most annoying expression in hockey?
For me, it's "had the goalie beat" when the goalie makes a save.
You usually hear it in two situations:
On a breakaway/penalty shot were the goalie makes a "desperation save"
Where a shot hits the post/crossbar
With the first one, maybe? It could also just be a super athletic goalie relying on reflexes and movement rather than perfect positioning... which, in all honesty, a shootout/break away is mostly about for a goalie. They're not reading were a pass is going or what lane a bunch of skaters might pick, they're simply trying to stop a single skater alone with the puck.
What may look as a "desperation save" might just as well be the goalie pretending to give up space in an area to force/lure the shooter there.
And with the second one... A shot that hits the post or crossbor doesn't even count as a shot on net. If a shot hits the frame, I don't see how you can even reach the conclusion that they "had the goalie beaten" with how good goalies are these days.
If the net was
