Kukla's Korner Hockey

Afternoon Line

“I think anytime you have someone who is a passionate hockey guy who loves the sport and plays the sport, who is a true fan of the sport, as an owner, is a great thing.  If it happens that that person has deep pockets, that would be a better thing. Jim obviously has all of those attributes.

“I sensed his passion for the game [in conversations with Balsillie] and I do think it would be somebody worth considering. But there is a lot of politics and history here [between Balsillie and the NHL] that I am not in a position to comment on.”

-Paul Kelly, Director of the NHLPA on Jim Balsillie.  More from Kelly from Alam Adams of CBC.
