Kukla's Korner Hockey

A Glorious Comeback

from the Centre Daily,
For a sport that sacrificed more than any other pro sport in the modern era -- remember, there was no hockey at this time last year, only pompous posturing by men in dark suits in high-rise conference rooms -- hockey has made a glorious comeback, even if the league's television contract is with Outdoor Life Network. The black eye of the 310-day work stoppage is just about healed. Attendance is up, goal-scoring is up nearly 20 percent and the rule changes put in place to eliminate the boring, clutching-and-grabbing defensive styles seem to have worked. Want proof?
