If there ever was any behind the scenes deals in this league, this one might make sense...
From a Gary Betman sell the game to the people of Phoenix stand point could you see Gary and his good old boys hoping that the NHL owned Coyotes would face the crowd drawing Red Wings for the 1st round of the playoffs?
Wouldnt it be interesting if either of these teams had a "weird" call for or against them in the last game of the season that matched these 2 teams up in the standings as playoff contenders? hmmmmmmm
Im not saying there is anything going on but you know what I mean? hmmmmmmmmmmmmm
