Bill Clement on the Future of the NHL

from advanceofbucks.com,
Bill Clement had just retrieved his baggage from the Philadelphia International Airport carousel. Fresh off of broadcasting Citgo Bassmaster Classic for ESPN from Pittsburgh's Mellon Arena - an event he described as "15,000 crazed fishing fans" - Clement placed a cell phone call to offer his take on the National Hockey League's freshly minted Collective Bargaining Agreement. Motoring north on Interstate-95 toward his New Hope residence, his words rushed through the line with the enthusiasm of a slap shot. "For the welfare of the sport, there had to be a correction," insisted the 54-year-old former Philadelphia Flyer. "The sport was headed for oblivion. The business model was completely shattered."
