Bring back the excitement

Glen Cuthbert, Hamilton, Ont.

Where has the excitement gone? I was recently watching some clips of some '80s hockey and the thing that really stood out to me was the sheer excitement of the players after scoring a goal.

Theo Fleury sliding across the ice on his knees, Steve Yzerman jumping around like a mad man and many others.

The only player who really seems to enjoy scoring these days in Alex Ovechkin. All the rest just seem to be sleepwalking.

Do you want your fans to get excited? Maybe you should show them how.
