Kukla's Korner Hockey

Daly was contacted by TSN on Monday about Armstrong's request that the International Olympic Committee to force Pound, a Montreal lawyer, to quit over his handling of doping allegations against Armstrong. "We are not at all surprised by Mr. Armstrong's request given Mr. Pound's repeated instances of irresponsible behaviour and grandstanding," Daly wrote in an email to TSN. "We fully support Mr. Armstrong's plea to have the IOC hold Mr. Pound accountable for his past actions, and laud Mr. Armstrong's willingness to stand up for the rights of all of the innocent athletes who have been wrongly and unfairly disparaged by Mr. Pound."more Also, Eric at Off Wing Opinion brings up the subject too...
In short, what we're seeing here is the NHL striking back at Pound and putting him on the PR defensive while using Armstrong and his reputation as political cover. It's all very smart, and, depending on your point of view, perhaps awfully cynical as well.
