Roller Coaster enthusiasts are usually bummed by the extremely short track, wishing there were more ups, downs, and mega insane twists. While we can’t blame a thrill seeker for wanting a longer ride, maybe roller coasters are just meant to be short and to the point, and not drawn out, exhausting, and detrimental to those around it.
The NHL, it’s players, league officials, and fans of the game have just reached the end of their own long roller coaster ride. While the lockout…Continue
