    Not sure how close everyone pays attention to the NBA but this concept of an NBA Regular Season Belt has been picking up steam on Reddit and Bill Simmon's Grantland site. For more information read this:

    http://www.grantland.com/blog/the-t...cing-the-nba-regular-season-championship-belt

    Basically the Blackhawks started the year with the championship belt and when they lose a regular season game it gets transferred to the team that beat them and so on. SB Nation took the concept and applied it to the NHL:

    http://www.sbnation.com/nhl/2013/11/1/5056132/nhl-championship-belt-2013

    At the time the article was published on November 1st the Avalanche had the belt. They were beaten Nashville and then...as of last night...the Jets have the belt!

    First title defense tomorrow against San Jose!

    That is actually a pretty great concept.

    Completely meaningless but fun.

    This would be tons of fun. You could even have a trophy of a golden puck, or something.

    Players don't even touch the conference championship after winning it. Patting themselves on the back after a win or two probably wouldn't fly!

    I'm just happy that we defended it even once... and against the Sharks at that. :D

    I love this! It's a fun thing to kind of keep us occupied through the grind of the season. I'm not sure why people would turn their nose up at it... this is after all sports and sports are supposed to be fun and be entertaining.

    I would love if this actually became a thing in the NHL and players got into it. I think it would be a fun distration for them as well!

    There was a thread at the beginning of the year explaining the concept, and following it for a little bit

    A championship belt with the Jets logo as the main face plate would look pretty sweet.

    No! Hockey is serious business!

    You have stated what I tried to say more better.

    Professional sports are for entertainment and if following a meaningless "belt" around the league entertains people then so be it.

    Great concept for the fans to enjoy, but I can guarantee players would never care about it.

    Other teams are going to start saying there is a screw job going on.
