Hockey: Regular Season Doldrums

February 9, 2015

Those two storied NHL rivals, the Boston Bruins and Montreal Canadiens, played only 4 games in this seemingly endless NHL regular season. The Canadiens won all four, and that’s it for this year.

Guess what, no not “that’s what,” but that the games mean little, if anything.

Regular seasons are too long and nearly meaningless in hockey and, for that matter, in basketball.

Also, there are too many teams in the playoffs in all sports.

A true regular season in baseball is the best, but it is more than diminished by the presence of wild card teams. Only the football season is reasonable because the team’s record is truly important.

So, regarding hockey, wake me when the playoffs start, because that is still a good deal of time away.
