Since posts are selectively deleted in the other hockey threads and since there is a lack of consistency in how rules are interpreted there, let's be clear about this thread.
The subject is HOCKEY...but you are free to express your opinions. That means you are ALLOWED to state negative FACTS or even negative opinions about the Habs, the Wings, or even (Heaven forbid!) the heavily-protected Toronto Maple Leafs.
Personal insults should not be made...but if they ARE, it is permitted to respond to them in kind!
Happy posting, hockey lovers, and remember: in THIS thread, the truth is not only allowed, it's encouraged!
