Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Allan Muir of Sports Illustrated,
(On Tuesday’s Young Stars game) “We know who those people [in the upper levels] are,” one league official stated emphatically on Wednesday. “We know they paid to be here. And that’s not the game we wanted to showcase. We can’t sell the game with an effort like that. The fans deserve a better effort than that. We made that clear to the players [taking part in the All-Star Game]. It has to be better.”
So the league can consider Tuesday’s black eye sufficiently covered up by Wednesday’s All-Star tilt. Here’s hoping they don’t forget the lesson learned about playing a game that at least somewhat resembled hockey.
Of course if it slips their mind, the fans who actually paid to be there will be sure to remind them.
