Gary Bettman Takes a Shot at the Boston Bruins

BY JULIEN TREKKER    JUNE 7, 2023  (10:29)
The Boston Bruins had an incredible season in the NHL, setting a new record for the most wins in a single season and proudly winning the Presidents' Trophy.

The Curse of the President's Trophy



While winning the Presidents' Trophy is a symbol of success for the team with the most points in the regular season, it has become a bit paradoxical recently, and it reminded us that being good in the regular season doesn't mean a long playoff run

Last season, the Florida Panthers experienced this. They won the Trophy but were quickly eliminated from the playoffs. The Boston Bruins, despite their outstanding performance this year, faced the same ending.


Bettman's Harsh Comments



In a surprising statement, Gary Bettman made a comment about the Bruins' unexpected playoff exit. His words added a touch of bitter reality to the Bruins' defeat.

"I think we're learning that winning the Presidents' Trophy isn't such a good thing. Look at the Boston Bruins! With the exceptional year they had during the regular season, who would've thought they would've been knocked out the way they did?"


Bettman's statement highlighted a harsh truth. The playoffs are different of the regular season, where the underdogs can cause surprises.
