Not that the NHL would ever admit it cheers for certain teams, but the league must be beaming at the results of the playoffs so far. Because in terms of marketing the sport to casual fans, Gary Bettman and his buddies are looking at a huge summer.

The only Stanley Cup final permutation right now that doesn't result in huge media coverage — let's call it the "nightmare scenario" — would be if Anaheim met Carolina. This is not meant to besmirch these two great teams; they simply don't have the name recognition that draws in the TV crowd.
