Kukla's Korner Hockey

A Seinfeldian Theme

from William Houston of the Globe and Mail,
Sportswriters are generally viewed as occupational hazards by front-office officials — disliked, tolerated, occasionally respected, but hardly viewed as the type you'd want to bring into the organization. That's why Doug Risebrough's decision to make Boston Red Sox beat writer Chris Snow the Minnesota Wild's director of hockey operations did more than raise eyebrows. It was a shocker. Risebrough, the Wild's president and general manager, laughed when he was asked whether his move was met with disapproval by his National Hockey League colleagues. “What I've found most amusing is the reaction from the media,” he said. “They're saying, ‘What were you thinking?' I'm saying, ‘What's the big deal?'”
