Stern is ruining the game. Zone defense isn't good, (everyone complained about not knowing illegal defense, which I don't get, illegal D was a very easy thing to learn). Now he is going to add another team soon, and put six divisions, three in each conference, 30 teams total, five teams in each division. He may also, so he says, make the first round a seven-game series. To have a playoff format of 5-7-7-7 is just enough, but 7-7-7-7 is terrible...that would be a total of 28 games possible, instead of 26, but that means a possible total of 16 more playoff games in each matchup. Imagine the playoffs being 16 games longer than what it is now...my, my David, stop this madness now. The first round should be compelling and short...get it over with.
