Hockey Talks On A Late Saturday Night

from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun,

- Was there not a single Canadian capable of being the chief executive officer of Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment Ltd? Wonder if anyone will challenge the appointment of Tim Leiweke from an immigration perspective?

- Over the past three seasons, Ovechkin has 204 points, or seven more than Phil Kessel, who really does deserve more accolades than Southern Ontario seems willing to give him.

- Why the NHL is so much better than the NBA: The first round of the NBA playoffs is close to unwatchable (except for Golden State-Denver). The gap between top teams and bottom playoff teams is too wide. In the NHL, you drop the puck in Round 1 and the drama begins.

more including Brian Burke may have been a candidate for the GM job in Dallas which appears to be going to Jim Nill as of tonight...

Why are Canadians so hung up on this sort of thing?  And they give others a rough time, yeesh.  How about “Be qualified for the job and succeed”?

Because they view it as ‘their’ sport. My father-in-law (my wife’s canadian) says there is increasing dislike of the US particularly among younger canadians and their government and it just burns them up that we terrible Americans may be better at managing their flagship hockey franchise.

All I can say to anyone with that attitude is Bite It, Bitches.
