IMHO of course.
That would be nice, but as long as there isn't enough skill to go around, the league seems to want to pander to the lowest common denominator. They had the chance after the last lockout to enforce the new rules, but they let that go after the first few months of the post-lockout season, IIRC.

#Coyotes G.M. Don Maloney today said three other @NHL teams formally asked him for permission to talk to Head Coach Dave Tippett. (more)

That's pretty interesting. I assume those teams were the Rangers, Canucks and Stars?

Although I'd like to pretend that Shero called before he made the decision to keep Dan.

I like a GM who doesn't mince words.

There's gonna be a game 7. Boston is going to take this one. They are dominating.

Some dude I haven't spoken to since high school for good reason posted about Shaw coming back and added "take notes Crosby". (For a little context I grew up near Philly.) UNFRIENDED.

Never seen a fan base obsessed with a player like those guys are.

I'm guessing one of the teams was the Pens, but once got shot down decided to keep Bylsma. Just a guess.

Elliotte Friedman ‏@FriedgeHNIC 38s
Conn Smythe voters are: 3 Boston @ThePHWA members, 3 from Chicago and 5 at-large. Ballots, I believe, are due now...making it even tougher

Pierre LeBrun ‏@Real_ESPNLeBrun 22s
@FriedgeHNIC I'm struggling with my vote... so many good choices. No obvious one

it's too soon to vote if you ask me!

I am sure a large part of it is the context of the game, but man this game has been intense.
