Are you allowed unlimited challenges in a hockey game?

Not this question again! It gets asked a lot, you know.

Okay, technically, fighting isn't allowed; the players involved will get five minutes in the penalty box for dropping the gloves and sometime more. But fighting rarely gets one ejected from a game, and I have yet to hear of a player being suspended for a fight.

So on some level, yeah, fighting is accepted in hockey.

Sometimes a player will want to fight to send a message not to mess with the stars on the team. Take a run at someone like Ovie, Stamkos, or Crosby, and you'll have to answer to one of the enforcers.

Sometimes a fight can spur a team to come back and win a game.

And I think sometimes when a game builds animosity, two players will duke it out to defuse the tension.

Each week, we seek expert advice to help a small or medium-sized business overcome a key issue.

Jason Boddam is a classic entrepreneur. He was the kid who cut the neighbours’ lawns, washed cars and set up Kool-Aid stands to make enough money to control his own destiny.

Fast-forward nearly three decades and he has done just that as the founder of Boddam Custom Hockey Ltd., an Orangeville, Ont.,-based manufacturer of goalie equipment for hockey and lacrosse players.

Mr. Boddam grew up playing hockey and lacrosse in the backyard of his childhood home in Brampton, Ont. He originally set out to start a goalie-equipment repair business, but when he went to the bank looking for $100,000 they “actually laughed at me,” he recalls.

He began offering repair services anyway, and one day a customer came to him with an old goalie glove and asked him to make a new one. “I wasn’t busy and thought, ‘Why not?’” Mr. Boddam remembers. “I built the most beautiful...

I'm pleased to announce our next challenge! This time around we'll be using the Chicago Blackhawks. We haven't used them in a TBL challenge since way back in Challenge #9! We're going to be using the Retro98 DB again. Nino33 did some additional work to the DB and released an UPDATE . In this challenge we'll be using a saved game from Nino33 where he simmed up to April 1st 2003.

Thanks again to CJ, Nino33, and everyone else that contributed to the Retro98 DB!

The rules and setup laid out in this post supersede anything found in any other posts or old challenge rules!
