Interesting... I can't speak to the quality of the NHL product in 1995 as that was around the time I was learning to walk (and, in turn, skate ), but I do have a question as to the length of the season. Being that the playoffs started on May 6, could it have been possible that, without the high number of short series (3 sweeps in the semis and one 5 game series, with the Final being another sweep) that the playoffs could have bled into July? A 7 game series in the semis and the Final going 6 or 7 would have added another week at least, does anyone know how that would have affected free agency (it seems the draft was pushed back considerably)? I can just imagine all those people who think the season is too long now must have hated it ending in late June and dreaded the thought of the Cup being awarded in July
