Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Scott Burnside of ESPN,
At this point of the proceedings, why not toss a small nuclear device into the works?
Things have gone so swimmingly between the NHL and its locked-out players that to be talking about decertification -- a strategy described by various legal experts in terms ranging from "AK-47" to "incendiary device" to "nuclear weapon" -- seems about as logical as anything, given the lack of logic at play so far.
In a process marked by a startling lack of grace and civility, many players are now clamoring for a move that has the potential to level the NHL and leave it in tatters, pending the various outcomes that decertification represent.
In short, and in the wake of a failed attempt at mediation, it is the ultimate act in a play whose main characters have been anger, mistrust and disrespect.
