For me, there is not a sport on the planet that matches hockey for speed, strength, endurance, brutality, skill, hand-eye coordination...
Agreed. They should get paid at least what baseball players get paid.
Totally. It's the only sport I can think of that has a requirement to even play. If you cant skate, you cant play.
Maybe American football would be more enjoyable on ice.
And while I'm changing sports rules, if the pitcher hits the batter with the ball, he should be out. After all, if the batter hits the ball and it hits the runner, he is out.
