Kukla's Korner Hockey

A lot of the games have been a lot more entertaining and that's good, there's no doubt about that. It's far more difficult, if not impossible, for teams to sit on leads for 30 or 40 minutes, and that's good, too; no doubt about that, either. But at the same time, a number of the games played through the first 10 days of the NHL's return from the dead haven't even resembled hockey, and that's bad. A number of the games have more or less resembled basketball, and that's bad, too, no doubt about that, either. Everyone's all for improving the game. But, after watching too many games in which too many players were permitted to skate freely without fear of being touched as they circled the perimeter while their teammates stood around watching them go one-on-one, we wonder whether Sixth Avenue's motive is to improve the game or whether Sixth Avenue's motive is to change the game entirely in order to try and sell it to consumers who wouldn't know Rocket Richard from Roger Clemens.
