Because Bettman has eyes and ears everywhere. So when he found out that one of the refs was going to write the book, he'd send his "enforcer", likely Shanahan, to whack him.

Yeesh. Simple stuff man.

Somebody has been playing too much Alan Wake~


So, in order for this to happen, the players on the other teams themselves would have to actively be in on it. The game they spent their entire lives working for, and their love of the game, is all cast aside so the Rangers can win. The cast members must be upset.

Seriously though, if you thought this were true, why are you even watching/posting? Without integrity, the league is nothing.

Integrity of the game issues are the most important issue in any sport. Without integrity, the game would cease to exist.
People still go to NBA games.

Theyve barely gotten by as it is, scoring lucky, ugly goals when they need them and Lundqvist has had one of the easier playoff runs in recent memory, considering only 30-40% of the shots taken even get to him.

The Rangers are manufacturing wins and playing system hockey. As soon as they see a legit #1 goaltender like Quick, and a big tough LA team, its game over.

LA in 5 if it happens.
An La-ny SCF is going 7. Don't kid yourself

Yeah, I just saw on NHLN that someone tweeted him the question "If the Kings and Rangers play each other in the finals which captain will have a bigger impact".

Not to mention that someone could very well blow the whistle on this conspiracy and let the media have a field day.

For what it's worth, a Kings vs. Rangers final would be one hell of a series.
