Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Cam Cole of the Vancouver Sun,
The message should not be lost. Sadly, it might be.
A National Hockey League owner - that is, a member of that society of mutes that has remained stonily silent, Sphinx-like, while star player after star player has been hammered into unconsciousness - has actually spoken out against the stupidity. That is progress.
An NHL owner has actually rebelled against the lowest-common-denominator ethos of Gary Bettman’s desperate reign, in which the governing class seems to have concluded that hockey minus violence is unmarketable in the United States - a conclusion quietly endorsed by the overwhelming majority of league owners.
So before we get to what’s wrong with the source of Sunday’s complaint, let’s celebrate the fact that one of the commissioner’s sheep finally had enough of watching the no-talent bums set the on-ice agenda through what might be remembered as the saddest age in hockey’s history.
