Canadians Embrace The Game

from the Ottawa Sun,
It wasn't supposed to be like this, was it? There was so much anger and bitterness during the 16-month NHL lockout. It was spewed in a lot of different directions. Somebody would have to pay, right? Some jilted Canadian fans vowed to stay away from the NHL game when and if it returned. Some fans blamed the greedy players. Some blamed the greedy owners. But now, it turns out here in Canada, the anger and bitterness of fans were not directed at either the owners or the players, but towards not having NHL hockey. It was not what caused the gaping hole in our long winter which made us so angry, apparently, but the hole itself. This is Canada, after all, and the NHL is, for many Canadians, the embodiment of hockey.
