WHICH IS WHY HOCKEY SHOULD HAVE A 40 GAME SEASON...:

Hockey Playoffs Put Basketball Playoffs on Ice (Susan Shan, 5/17/10, Epoch Times)

This year, when torn between watching an NHL playoff game or an NBA playoff game being aired at the same time, the choice is really quite simple. The 2010 NHL playoffs blow away the NBA playoffs in every facet of sports.

In the 12 series that each sport has played to reach the conference finals, the NBA has been, quite frankly, boring. Only had one NBA series went the full seven games—the first round matchup between the Milwaukee Bucks and the Atlanta Hawks. Four sweeps have occurred, of which three came in the conference semifinals.

In contrast, the NHL has had no sweeps and four seven-game series with two coming in the conference semifinals. In addition, the NHL has had 15 overtime games, including a double overtime game and a triple overtime game. The NBA has had none.


...and get to the good stuffer quicker and while it's still Winter.
