Kukla's Korner Hockey

The NHL is coming back, and it’s like getting back together with an old flame after a lengthy and nasty break-up. You’re thrilled at the prospect of meeting again, but a little nervous about what you might see. You don’t want to forgive, but you know when you set eyes on the object of your affection, that you’ll be hopelessly smitten again. There had been promises that this time, it would be different, but would it really? That’s the question, because if this is the same person as before, it’s not going to work. No, this time it has to be different. This time, it has to be new and a commitment to everything that’s beautiful about what was. The NHL hasn’t done a very good job of selling itself to its spurned fans. It made a big deal about a lot of new rules, but it hasn’t pumped up the season that’s almost upon us. It hasn’t cranked up the P.R. machine, rolled out the “Hockey’s Back” ads, hasn’t staged an event in Central Park or downtown Toronto or Vancouver or Dallas or anywhere that I’ve read about.
