Kukla's Korner Hockey

The crackdown on obstruction will be enforced. They really mean it this time. In concert with new rules, the ice will be opened up so much, rinks will seem to have been stretched to international dimensions and fire-wagon hockey will be back. Instead of slouching in your seats as you eat nachos and read Architectural Digest in an attempt to get some relative excitement during an NHL game, you will be on the edge of your chair -- or the couch -- every second. The numbers will jump so high, if this were baseball, we would suspect everyone loaded up on flaxseed oil. And the check is in the mail. If I dared to say, "Stop me if you've heard that before," this column would stop right here, as if four guys hooked and held me at once and a fifth wrestled away the laptop and headed for the nearest pawn shop. But I won't say that, so I can add this: I'll believe it when I see it.
