Babcock to edm as a coach/gm?
Bettman persuades Babock & he goes to coach/gm Edmonton. Toronto is outraged by the news (they already had dibs on babs) and begins to riot.. Vancouver, not wanting to be outdone, would try to outriot Toronto. Both of them trying to top the other eventually causes Canada to implode. All of the hockey players get out in time and are deemed free agents by the league. The best players sign with the worst teams that are left. All goes according to plan and bettman finally has the parity he's always dreamed of. Babcock emerges from the ashes better than ever and coaches the wings to three straight Stanley Cups.
....and then I wake up
