It's hard to grow a brand that way. Yes, we don't give a **** about CBJ as Habs fans, but the league has to look out for all 30 teams.

Honestly, yes the % of making the playoffs is higher in the West, but the bottom line is if you can't be one of the 8 best teams in a pool of 16 instead of the current 15, you shouldn't be whining about missing the playoffs - you aren't a team to be taken seriously anyway if you can't be in the top half of a group of 16.
Thank you. This is what I came to post.
