Let's get nuts!

Take Brian Costello's 20-playoff-team idea from the April 16 issue deeper into NHL mind-think.

Let 14 non-playoff teams have a shootout marathon for two slots. Then the other 12 go to a “maim the goalie in the crease” competition for one more.

The last 11 engage in a demolition derby-like “how much can you get away with” penalty contest.

Per Brian, what's the NHL got to lose? They couldn't care less about the game's true fans that once sat in those empty seats.
