Start with the schedule. Why do the Original Six teams not play each other every year? Don't give me to develop division rivalry crap! You think Blackhawks fans really want to play Columbus and Nashville 6x EACH in the regular season at the behest of the NY Rangers, Boston Bruins, etc?!?!? Hell NO!!! The NBA have it figured out. Each team plays the teams in their conference 4x and they play the the teams in the opposing conference 2x each for a home and away game. This allows you to market superstars, traditional rivalries and match-ups. If you are a Blackhawks fan and want to get a little payback for Alexander Ovechkin's hit on Brian Campbell, too bad. Unless you want to drive to DC next year. Want to see the Original Six come through the Madhouse on Madison? Screw you! Ain't gonna happen.
The Stanley Cup regular season rematch of the Flyers and Hawks, a game that should see Chris Pronger and someone drop the gloves should be a showcase event. When do you schedule it Buttman? January 23rd which just so happens to coincide with NFL Championship weekend you dumb ass!!
I still can't get over the fact that you purposely put 2 Stanley Cup games on non-network TV, denying thousands of people the opportunity to watch gamers 3 and 4 of the Stanley Cup Finals. Are you f#&^*ing high?!Finally, your Stanley Cup Champions start their schedule on the road. WTF is that?!?!
Gary Buttman . . . you suck!
