Complaining Getting Old

from Terry Frei of ESPN,
NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly recently fined Toronto coach Pat Quinn for knocking the New NHL (too little 5-on-5 time, gimmicks breaking ties and deciding games, stale popcorn, etc.). Boston Bruins team president Harry Sinden was sympathetic to Quinn, pointing out he had voiced similar sentiments during the exhibition season. In essence, Sinden inadvertently reminded us of his relative irrelevancy since dropping the GM title and not having as many opportunities to blame the Bruins' shortcomings on a coach and dodge an architect's accountability. Daly let Sinden off the hook. Sinden should have been whistled for obstructing the New NHL, too. Saying that really was hard.
