The other problem is strong divisions where really good teams just end up knocking other really good teams out of the playoff picture.
Bettman is just clueless.
Yeah I agree with that. I heard in the All-Star telecast on Versus that Bettman said he may not go back to the old scheduling but rather "tweaking" the current schedule. I mean I'm watching a good all-star game and then I hear this little pip-squeak yapping and he leaves me scratching my head.
