Get rid of the stupid points and the shootout. 10 minute overtime 3 v 3. If it's still tied, it's still tied.
If a team is out by Christmas, so be it. Get them next year. But an owner might be quicker to do what he needs to do to correct it if he doesn't want his investment to die.
And again, I hate the casual fan. Go casually step in traffic.
I agree less teams should make the playoffs, but I don't agree with the argument.
My problem is the exact opposite. It's the early season games that are boring for me. Well, all of it, but especially the early games.
Actually, it could be the fact that I cheer for a team that is NOT one of the 80% getting in (and don't win anything if they accidentally do), but the entire regular season has been cheapened and has become boring (could also legitimately be age, too).
I don't know about playoff teams but these bottom teams need to be relocated and given to cities that will support them...
