    I know this may sound hartless...
    but accidents happen. And every time you leave the house,
    there's a slim chance you may not make it home.

    Yeah, but some are easily preventable. I would go with nets at the ends, so what if you don't catch a puck. For the uninitiated, that's where there are angles that have a high probability for these types of accidents.

    This was just really sad news. Almost as sad as my team getting Bob Corkum at the trade deadline, Aser1ne can agree (I think).

    the puck bounced off another person then hit her.
    That means she could have been protected from the direct shot,
    but still get hit with the rebound. It's either 360' of netting or none
    more than they use now.

    last hockey game i was at a puck landed in the isle a couple seats down from me, scared the shit out of me because it just came out of nowhere, i didnt even realize it had left the ring.....those things have some juice behind them plus its practically impossible to follow one once its up in the air....they seriously need to do something.....

    thats really sad to hear. I don't think anyone would want to go out like that. Especially at such a young age. but i got to agree with --zeSto--. You leave the house, and your a target for anyone or anything no matter what. Don't they have like a waiver thing on the back of hockey tickets or something?

    Yes, when you buy a hockey ticket there is a waiver on the back saying that by purchasing the ticket you accept the fact that you may be injured by a stray puck. Thats just part of the sport, such as nascar when a car breaks apart and fans are hit by tires and shit...

    its horrible that happened, first time ever in the nhls history...

    But thats the possiblity you accept when ya go...
    :eek:
