We all call this new league the BHL... Bettman's Hockey Leaque. Spin off to the WWF. The stats tell the truth such as overtime has gone up by over 300% since Bettman took over. In the regular season I no longer watch games in certain rinks such as Carolina, Florida, Dallas where they have fan issues. Bettman thinks he can alter the reefing just a bit to get wins for those home teams to promote hockey in these towns. What he will never get is that once he looses the core fans the game will go the way WWF went.
We all thought that the WWF was fake but fans went. Once it came out it was fake... well look where it is now.. LOL.
It is now coming out that the reefing is planned by the NHL head office... Gotta love the word that some coaches and TV announcers use, "Inconsistent" LOL,
I use to be a guy that watched all the games on TSN and CBC but now maybe watch 1 a week.
Bettman has ruined the game but on another note he has made my wife happy as I do not watch near as many hockey games.
Don't worry as there will be a Canadian team in the play-offs till the conference finals just because CBC bagged on the NHL for lost revenue a couple years ago. If I'm wrong then "click", I have a lot more free time to get outside.
Remember when you use to see quite a few 4-0 series.. Not any more as the owners run the league and want 6 or 7.....
And now that NBC has signed a 10yr 2 billion dollar deal watch out.....
My 2cents worth... Mars
Oilers get another #1 pick "again".... They will win the cup again before Vancouver win 1............................
