A truly awful story to be sure.
Part of this is the general disbelief that men can be the victims of sexual assault. That's a belief that goes well beyond the confines of the United Center or professional hockey. It made it easy for Blackhawk management to dismiss the allegations. When the guys at the top of an organization fail to do anything, nobody under them will rock the ship much. Especially not a ship that was headed toward a Stanley Cup victory.
Kane and Toews comments reflect they didn't take it very seriously back then and that they still don't now.

Nope, not all conferences are created equal....
It should be teams in Power-5 conferences and a few independents if they play enough power-5 teams. No non-power 5 conference is better than a power-5 conference.
The best team in the conference could miss out on the conference championship.
What if Ohio State, beat Wisconsin during the season. Wisconsin is 9-2 versus OSU 11-0 in a rematch in the conference championship game. Wisconsin wins, is Wisconsin the best team in the conference? At best, they are equal because they are 1-1 during the season. If you throw in conference record, it is OSU with 11-1 versus 10-2.
You should take the conference champion in each conference power-5 conference (5 teams), then for an 8-team playoff, the next best 3 teams. If a 12 team playoff, the next best 7 teams.
Yeah, all of the interviews I’ve heard so far have seemed pretty shallow. The Edmonton sports media is a joke at best, but at least they made Duncan Keith squirm for ten minutes plus.
Up next, coach Joel Quenelleville. Good luck backtracking your way out of this one, guy.
I'm a little confused as to what you propose as your format. Is each player playing his own ball all the way to the hole, or are you doing some variation like a scramble or shamble? How are you calculating team handicaps? There might be some ways to work it out, but you'd have to start with those details first.
