Twenty-one games wipes the smirk off Dale Hunter's face.Twenty-one games sets a match to Gil Stein's pantywaist system of "discipline," which suspended players only for practices and non-game, non-travel days.Twenty-one games dares any other player in the NHL to find out whether this is the outer limit of Gary Bettman's justice, or whether it's just the starting point.Twenty-one games leaves a massive hole in the heart of the Washington Capitals. Even if you hate him, and he certainly gives you reason, you cannot overlook the fact that Hunter is a pivotal performer for his team.

"Hopefully, this year, we'll get it."Poile has seen the vision before. He has seen it almost every year for a decade. Last season, when the Caps had the Pittsburgh Penguins down three games to one in the first round of the playoffs, he said, he believed he was about to touch it. Now, he winces just a little at the memory.

So many other things are different in the NHL this season.There are new teams in Tampa Bay and Ottawa. There are new rules aimed at heightening the speed and skill of the competition.So why not realign? Let's make four six-team divisions, based on their chances of winning it all in 1992-93:Going-For-It Division * New York Rangers: They don't have a right-hand shooter for the left-wing circle on the power play. They have more skaters than hitters on defense. Still, this is the best team in the league.
