Kukla's Korner Hockey

A New Type Of Cap

from Adam Proteau of the Hockey News,
Now, the cruddy news: In a pro sports marketplace increasingly driven by athletes’ ability to self-promote, the NHL strolls the sidelines like a wallflower, still too modest and stubborn to amplify its aura. And it continues to pay the price for a long-held reticence towards marketing its individual players.... Simply put, this league still needs a personality enema in the worst way. Too many players and managers remain unconvinced of the desperate need for them to open up and sell the merits, inherent and recently added, of a sport that still pays some considerable bills. For the majority, talking in truisms still somehow represents a lifeboat in a swirling sea of reporter sharks.
