That just seems... Unnecessary, I guess.  Do NHL teams care even a little bit about the President's Trophy?  Except maybe that it's cursed?

There is absolutely nothing wrong with "load management." It sucks for the fans but it is what it is. I do love however now that "load management" has been a widely acknowledged thing for probably a little under a decade that this trophy nobody wants exists.

(DNRTFA) The NFL sort of does this best.  The first round bye is about the only thing that makes it worth playing through the last regular season game.  These multibazillionairres don't need a trophy.   They need a nap.

The fact that there are only 17 games is really what's helpful.

I don't know if I can do a good comparative equivalent for the ratio of number of games to the physical and mental burden of each sport.  Spitballing, 18 regular season NFL weeks is probably more damaging than 30 NBA weeks, while the 30 NBA weeks probably has more fatigue cycles than the 18 NFL weeks.

MLB used to have something similar until 1968.   It was called the league championship.

You gotta have something for teams to shoot for, so they can hang a banner.
