I am just curious to know what are the number of back to back games your teams are sentenced to play next year? The Sabres get to play 20 back to back games. Just under a quarter of their schedule. I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess the Leafs, Senators and Canadians were protected in this way. I guess this is the way the NHL gets back at certain teams for their previous years indiscretions. Lindy shouldn't say Run'em next year if a team aims to knock a Sabres player's block off. Tom Golisano shouldn't write a public letter about the problems that head hunting brings to the league. Bettman and his boys will always get the last word.
