Monday night, Detroit ordered that it be Christmas in May for the NHL Corporate Offices by routing Dallas and giving Gary Bettman the NHL Finals showdown he’d been hoping for. It was hard for Bettman to be an extra good boy this year, what with the constant attacks from LeNoceur, but hey, Santa likes him. Wings! Pens! It’s the Stanley Cup Finals! Tuesday! Right?
What do you mean Saturday?
Following in the footsteps of the National Football League, it appears that the NHL has put off playing hockey until everyone’s rusty and forgets how to effectively set up the power play. At MYFO, we’re in the midst of a material drain that makes a simple blogger long for the days of high octane match-ups between Columbus and Phoenix. However will we pass the time?
BY ATTENDING MEDIA DAY
Surely, this hockey gap is designed to heighten the fervor and lunacy of a marquee Stanley Cup Finals. And what better way to exploit the players who shall earn thy league revenue by making them stand barefooted on the ice surface of Joe Louis Arena in their jerseys and street clothes, answering mindless questions by a media who thinks Chris Osgood is a Teen Girl Squad typo?
