Kukla's Korner Hockey

Dear Gary

from WXYZ TV in Detroit,
Mr. Bettman- My name is Tom Leyden. I worked at the NHL from 1998-2000 as the manager of sales and marketing for NHL.com and since have moved into the television media. I'm a sports reporter for WXYZ-TV in Detroit, a city where hockey has certainly thrived this season. At a time when Motown should be celebrating the Red Wings fantastic regular season, the theme of hockey conversations (when we're not discussing if Manny Legace can carry the Wings through the playoffs) has been an overwhelming disdain for the new regular season schedule. As a media member and hockey fan, the schedule truly upset me this year. Playing eight games against each divisional opponent is ill- advised, even if the league is committed to "developing new rivalries."
