Response to Out of all that is wrong with hockey, THIS is what they focus on?
Teams getting a buy in hockey playoffs are bad news. It works for football, seeing as they're used to playing once a week and even sometimes having a two-week layoff. But hockey, basketball and baseball don't use buys for a reason... it screws good teams out of their momentum, not to mention playoff revenues.
I'll never forget how our junior team **** the proverbial bed last year. Ranked 2nd in the entire Canadian Hockey League major junior rankings; loads of talent including Marc-Andre Fleury between the pipes; yet they go down 4 games to 1 after drawing a team that had a lot of momentum after round 1. It was crap.
