I'm at the point where I want the season cancelled. It will be fun to watch them try to win fans back. Plus, the Leafs would be in contention for the first overall pick if they use a similar method as they did last time.

I want the season canceled just so the Habs don't even have the opportunity to burn 1 year of Galchenyuk's ELC for a hopeless 50 game season.

Thanks for reminding me

I would have loved to see Burke and Babcock behind the scenes.

Rangers actually have LESS Cups in the past 70 years than the Leafs do.

WG,

Are either of your parents old enough to remember any of the Leafs' Cups?

You got it all wrong. It's Cups * Grandmas.

Re: Bettman Lockout III Thread (aka NHL Offseason: Now & Forever)

Cups measured in Rangz
Grandmas being a measure of time, about 70 years

So Rags, Kangz, Flames are all at about 1 GFCV (Goose Franchise Cups Value)

The more detailed version factors in years of franchise existence, teams in the league at time of cup win (lol 6 team league), and rounds of playoffs. atgpaGFCV (age, teams, games played adjusted Goose Franchise Cups Value)

You'll have to talk to Triumph for the complete formula breakdown

My father recalls watching it on his colour television. His dad worked for Phillips Electric and so they had a colour TV before anyone else on the block. It is on this television he saw the likes of Red Kelly, Bobby Baun and George Armstrong lift the Lord Stanley's Cup.
