It seems that everyone forgets that years ago to win the cup you only needed to win 8 games. That is why so many of the true all stars don't have the high goal totals like they do now. Hey if the boys from back then were playing 20 to 30 games in the playoffs the guys from back then would have numbers that would be unreachable. It's great to see that $$$$ can buy you a Stanley cup just like the Yankees did with the World Series. Detroit is what $7 Million above any other team in the NHL. Colorado did it last year and Detroit is doing it this year.
What a shame and it's destroying the greatest game on earth.
Maybe Yzerman, Hull, Luc, Federov, Hasek will retire after this cup.
I dislike the Red Wings more than you know but everyone has to admire Yzerman for staying with a team that went from the top to the bottom and back to the top and never leaving for a Stanley cup contender. That's what it should be about.
May the better team win but I hope it isn't Detroit.
