Kukla's Korner Hockey

Big Market Muscle Flex

from Allan Muir at Sports Illustrated,

Sorry, Sabres fans. Tough luck, ye followers of the benighted Fishsticks. I probably can’t stop you from draping yourselves in sackcloth and a thick coating of ashes while you curse the cruel fate of your underprivileged franchises. But I’m here to tell you that hockey fans should be rejoicing, no matter what their team affiliation.
Say what you want about the merits of competitive balance. It’s the presence of teams that are as rich in tradition as they are in talent that makes a sport compelling. And if these spending sprees allow another dynasty to rise up in a well-established market—New York or Philadelphia or Detroit or Toronto, for instance—then so much the better for the NHL.
