I was cheering for the Nashville Predators against Anaheim. I love to see new teams make it as far as the Finals, it highlights the need for parity in sports.
Something we aren’t getting out of the NBA Playoffs.
When low budget teams like Nashville can find the magic to get to the Stanley Cup Finals, it’s a good thing. It offers hope to teams who can’t pay all the way to the cap like Winnipeg or even Ottawa.
Yes, the Senators are right there with the Predators at the end of the playoffs but also at the bottom of the pay scale in the NHL.
While Pittsburgh and Anaheim are near the top, the NHL has two Cinderella stories.
Cinderella is dead in the NBA and we are getting tired of watching the evil step sisters get all the glory year in and year out.
Cleveland and Golden State are destined to play for the championship for the third straight year.
Give the NHL salary cap system credit, it’s doing what it was supposed to: allow all teams to have a chance at that glass slipper.
