Kukla's Korner Hockey

As the LeBron James saga has played out over the last many months, the mind keeps drifting back to one year ago, when Blue Jackets captain Rick Nash decided to sign an extension and avoid a circus.
Yes, James is a global superstar. (I feel greasy even typing those words.) He is known on every continent and is marketable to myriad demographics. Nash, meanwhile, is a star in central Ohio, in Canada and among NHL fans. Big difference.
But there’s also a big difference in how the athletes have handled the process, and Columbus isn’t even Nash’s hometown.
