    Im here in Australia, watch every broadcasted game (yep only 2 per week how sad) and am loving it!
    Took me a while to work out a few of your rules thou namely the offside and icing rules but thats ok now. But tell me. WHAT THE HELL IS A POINT? They give player stats and have goals, assists and points. WTF is a point?

    A player gets one point for each goal, and one point for each assist, so the points are the total number of goals + the total number of assists.
