Phoenix hockey fans are the smartest in the league..Dont give a shit about the regular season and just go nuts in the playoffs.For a non observer you would think Phoenix was the centre of hockey watching that game last night. The question that has been asked, if Phoenix wins the Cup, does Gary Bettman present the Cup to himself?

This pretty much sums up about 95% of the Sen fans in Ottawa. Biggest posers ever.

The regular season is all some fans have.

my guess this also has something to do with their recent play, and their rather selfish approach to the last couple of games.shocking would be if Rinne was suspended. With these guys....reads like an excuse to sit a guy you were dying to do so anyway.wasnt Radulov the guy who swung a stick at his coach? I wonder he was even sat a shift for that in the KHL. Ill be suprised if he's in Nashville next year, and he probably will even end up in KHL again.

Rules are rules. It's a playoff game, and they were out past curfew. Does that really suggest they're motivated to play? Good for the team for having morals.
Long signatures are really annoying.

There are other methods and times to teach lessons. Any punishment should try to minimize the impact on the innocent. They wouldn't be benched if they weren't sucking!Oh hi, Chris Stewart.

Pat Riley said during their championship run in 2006 that Dwyane Wade could punch him in the face and he'd still start him.

Yeah, I'm Team Nashville on this one, they're doing the right thing and I'd bet the farm on the Predators winning tomorrow night anyway.

I agree the timing isn't ideal, and I might agree with the second part as well. I think they would be benched, sucking or not, but the fact that they would break curfew WHILE putting in questionable efforts on the ice made it a prettay easy decision.

Its not very often a major trade helps both teams immensely..But it looks like the Flyers / Kings trade has been a good one for both teams.While the Kings struggled near the end of the year, they have found their game and are a legitimate cup contender at this point.The Flyers also have improved their team with the overhaul of Carter and Richards. Also the Flyers may be suffering a bit of a letdown after the pretty intense Penguin series..Lets not forget that the Flyers are missing one of the best defenseman of all time from their lineup.Dont count them out yet...Flyers and Kings in the finals.

I don't know what's, better - that DGB wrote something at Grantland, or the content:Worst rule in hockey.I have no doubt the game would instantly be better if they implemented exactly what he suggests.The second best thing might be that the resident hockey writer, Katie Baker, decided it was apparently too easy to be a female hockey writer, so her article this week (and maybe other weeks, I don't know, she has a scoring system and everything) is rating the wedding announcements in the New York Times.

Kane struck me as an uberdouche before this regardless.
