Kukla's Korner Hockey

Fan Friendly League

from Al Strachan of the Toronto Sun
, One of the intentions of the GNHL - Gary's New Hockey League -- is to increase fans' insights into the game. It's an excellent idea. Fans love to see themselves as insiders, familiar with the intricacies of the personnel. They like to toss about the nicknames of prominent hockey executives -- people like Slats, Jimmy D, Riser, and so on -- and they like to hear the gossip that is going on around the league. They like to know about trades that are being explored, even if those trades never come to fruition. The National Hockey League should encourage such behaviour because it creates a bond, a feeling of intimacy, which, in turn, creates a desire on the fan's part to follow the game even more closely. The bottom line in all this is that rabid fans are good for the profit margins.
