Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Mark Spector of Sportsnet,
Joyce Clark admits that she is a hockey “newbie.” On her Twitter account, the Glendale, Arizona, councilor prefaces her opinions on the play of the Phoenix Coyotes with qualifiers like, “I am a novice hockey fan.”
So it’s probably fair to assume that she wouldn’t have a clue about how her new favourite team came to be at the expense of the City of Winnipeg, where there are more hockey fans residing in any three neighbourhoods than live within all of Glendale….
So it was ludicrous on so many levels Wednesday, when Clark tweeted:
I will be so pleased when Coyotes issue is settled. Then all of these Canadian poachers can move on to another team and another city.
As a councilor of a city that poached the Coyotes from the city that poached the Jets from Winnipeg, that takes guts. But Glendale councilors have proven ready to say or do almost anything, facts and consequences be damned. That could be why the jurisdiction is swimming in debt these days.
