The Boston Bruins beat the Columbus Blue Jackets last night and clinched the 2022/23 Presidents trophy, which is given to the team that finishes the regular season with the best record.
It’s nice and all, but the Presidents trophy is literally the most useless award in sports. Who cares if you have the best record in the regular season. What you want is the best record in the post-season. You want that Stanley Cup. Anything else is irrelevant. Sure, having the best record in the regular season guarantees you will have home ice advantage in every round of the playoffs, but it’s also sort of a jinx as the winner rarely wins the Cup. Given the choice, I’d go into the playoffs as a low seed if it ends with the Stanley Cup.
Congrats to the Bruins, I guess. One step closer to the post season. I don’t know about the rest of Bruins Nation, but I am ready for the playoffs. Oh so very ready.
