As if I didn't already have enough reasons to hate Bettman, now he's screwing with the integrity of the Stanley Cup Finals. Moving up the start date was bad enough, but the way they're jamming all the games into such a short amount of time is just despicable. 2 games in 2 days, 3 games in 4 days, 4 games in 6 days... are you kidding me? Both teams have already played a full season and 3 playoff rounds. Does that idiot have any idea how dangerous it is to not give players time to heal at this stage in the year? I really hope this isn't the case, but I bet at leat part of the reason is that he's hoping this will give the Pens (the younger team) the advantage. The media sure seems to think it will. I'm not so sure. Pittsburgh only has 2 lines that can score, and those guys play a lot of minutes. Seeing a show they won't get sufficient time to rest, they could be easily be dragging ass by game 4. I guess we'll see. regardless of what happens in the series, I'm absolutely sickened by this.
Honestly man- shut the f*ck up. The Wings are gonna probably win the cup regardless and I'll likely break something when it happens.
If both teams have to do it, it's fair. And don't give me this age differential crap. Tired is tired and last I checked, your team has young legs too. The TV announcers sounded about ready to jump on the ice to suck the cocks of the "young and powerful and studly Wings 4th line that is just super awesome." I threw up in my mouth about 5 times towards the end of that game cause they just would not shut the f*ck up about the Wings' young talent.
God I hate the Red Wings.
