Bettman & Co. ban the throwing of hats after a hat trick.
maybe i should have had greg howard write the brandon obit.
I think it started when there were only 6 NHL teams and 4 made the playoffs, and you needed to win 8 games (2 series) to win the cup. That takes it back to the 60s at a minimum. It is truly one of the great traditions in hockey, and the origin of it is quite clever. To ban it is nuts. And I am not even a Red Wings fan.
The NHL/Bettman are rediculous
I see what you did there.
