"The problem with hockey's stretch run is... there's not whole lot of suspense... There's no real sense of urgency because so many teams make it. Once the tournament starts, it's a different story, but hockey's got some dog days in February and March."What hockey needs to do is make portions of the ice dangerously thinner and put a tank of sharks underneath. Oh, and make sure no one who didn't win more games than they lost can make the playoffs."
