Problem Solved?

Regarding the glass/stanchion problem, Danno found this at Dave’s Geeky Ideas.

This is what Danno suggested way back when the incident happened. He’s way ahead of things because here’s his comment from then. “What the engineers at the Bell Centre should consider is tapering the glass on a diagonal angle so it rises gradually. That, or alternatively they could curve the glass somehow so it doesn’t just come straight up like it does right now. I don’t know, but surely some improvement can be made to reduce the chance of this happening again.”

  1. I like this idea but I wonder how many players are going to get a smack in the face with a puck.

    At least we won’t have to blame the Stanchion anymore for the Pacioretty hit. Mean, nasty thing that it is. How it lives with itself I’ll never know. Sigh.

  2. the nhl can change the boards and stanchions all it wants but if chara did in fact intend to injure max as many believe, then the nhl is still not addressing the problem but merely applying a band-aid, as we all know……… the goons of the nhl will always find creative ways to do their dirty work as long as they are ALLOWED to. i’ll not get into the real solutions here but punishing the innocent because you can’t or won’t catch the guilty doesn’t work for me.

  3. hobo – Seeing Chara lift that Cup made me sick. I could accept the others lifting it, even that jerk Ference, but Chara? It was one depressing sight.

  4. Darth, I refused to watch it. As soon as I understood that the Bruins would win it, I shut it off. Unfortunately, with the coverage nowadays, I saw Chara and others raise the Cup several times over the next few days. I’m not sure if my heart and soul can take anymore of this. This year they win. Lots of dead people have assured me of this.

  5. Dennis, I feel the same way and did exactly the same thing as you did. And I’m sure we were not the only Habs fans who tuned out because we couldn’t stand the sight of that big ugly ape touching the Cup. It’s true you couldn’t avoid seeing the picture eventually and it made me sick as well.

    This year will be different. It has to be.

  6. I subscribe to The Hockey News. Well, I got a double whammy. First the regular magazine was sent to me and it had the Bruins on the cover with the Cup. Then a special edition magazine came and it had Chara holding the Cup in all his glory. Talk about pouring salt on an open wound.

    The Cup is ours this year. I think all the pieces are in place now for it.

  7. Darth, that’s extremely sad. We need to speak to Danno about this. He works for Canada Post and I can’t believe he let these offending Hockey News through. PS. Your last sentence is the new quote of the day.
