Plus, I really hate the idea of a 40-something game season.
As much as I missed 24/7 this year, the ASG, WC and 24/7 are hardly the most important parts of a hockey season. They're novelties than have been implemented to boost revenue and little more. I'm fine with a 40+ game season because it's miles better than no hockey at all. What do I care if I turn on MSG in February and it's game number 55 or 15? What do I care in April if the teams vying for the 6-8 seed have played 40 games a piece or 78? What do I care if the number one seed in the playoffs had a better record over 48 games than everyone else in the league, rather than over 82 games? Will I not still be watching playoff hockey? Yep. Not trying to miss that opportunity.
