The expansion of the NHL has watered down the final product. How many teams are on the verge of going bankrupt but Bettman still is trying to add more teams ?

Players are all for the cash and dash, especially if they are on a cup winning team. LA winning the cup was boring hockey. Any trap team is boring hockey, but if it wins you a cup I guess the end justifies the means. As well, in the league, there seems to be this lack of respect between players. Sportsmanship, honor etc have basically went out the window. Rules for enforcers now have handcuffed the pinheads like Matt Cooke from getting a good beating.
I agree with everything you say hear your preaching to the choir.

i think people have this "ideal team" to win with; like the 80's oilers/islanders, or the early 90's penguins/ followed by the avalanche/wings/devils team.

Now its painfully obvious that every team has some sort of flaws. I was just saying if you look at Chicago - Crawford played like ****, in fact i would go as far as if they lose the cup he's not even a starting goalie and could easily follow the descent of Phillies goalie from 2010

Boston had 2 rookie d-man in krug, hamilton, at least they had chara, ference, seidenberg, and others. they had so many passengers on forward in the end it wasn't even funny, same as Chicago where a few stepped up after.

I just feel fan bases over value what other teams and don't value what they have. At this point this team is more of an envy of most teams than you like to think. There is probably about 15 teams (obviously 15th to 30 th place teams) that would rather take this roster then there own. Its not that far off, if this team can't do what CBJ did last year, then you have to question heart and desire over talent, and perseverance.
