    Hockey is a fast, exciting sport played by two teams on a sheet of ice called a rink. Each team has six players on the ice, one goalie, two defensemen, two wingers, and one center man. The players skate up and down the ice shooting or passing a hard rubber disk called a puck with sticks. They score points by hitting the puck into the net. Hockey is much faster and swifter than any other sport. As the players streak across the ice, their powerful shots and passes can send the puck faster than 100 miles [160 kilometers] per hour. A goalkeeper on each team defends his net from the puck going in.

    Critical Analysis In the Globe and Mail, Roy Macgregor writes a column, “Start the NHL Season Already” saying that the NHL preseason is too long and needs to be cut shorter, as he thinks that preseason bores the fans and is meaningless. I disagree with Roy’s views that preseason should be shorter because a longer preseason allows for teams and coaches to evaluate their players fairly, go over systems of play, and ensures less injuries, making for an overall better game for the audience to watch.
