Fix The Schedule

from Al Strachan of the Toronto Star,
For years, NHL teams have been complaining about their schedule. But the complaints do no good. The New York office, which on a good day can dredge up someone who knows the difference between icing and hooking, has decreed that its computer is as capable as a hockey person. It isn't. The schedule has been bad ever since 1992 when Bettman decided that he was smart enough to overturn seven decades of precedent. Now, the computer spits out one-week breaks in the midst of a season that is supposed to be compressed because of the Olympics. A team that has to travel a lot, the Phoenix Coyotes, finds itself going without a road game for a six-week stretch, thereby making the rest of the season a greater grind than it needs to be.
