Keith Allridge, Leola, Pa. It's time for the NHL to revisit the point system. I hear people on different shows talking about awarding more points for overtime wins or for even getting into overtime.

Redemption fights necessary for game

by The Hockey News - April 11, 2010 12:06 PM EDT

Anders Danbolt Ajer, Oslo, Norway I read a real head-scratcher in the crowd shots section of the last THN issue. One guy wants redemption fights out of the game to "let the big boys play.
