Kukla's Korner Hockey

It All Starts With The Player

from John Buccigross of ESPN,
The owners are the producers, providing the capital to invest, sustain and grow the game. Fans are the investors and directors, providing the passionate fuel to lift the game to emotional heights and the cash flow to line the pockets for a lucky few. Most media are the PR engine, providing information, perspective and access to augment the joy and pain of being a fan. The media also provide free advertising for NHL teams. Still, none of this works without the player. They are the fulcrum. The actors. The leading men that make or break the show. Their commitment is what defines the game. In almost every hockey issue, you start with the actor.
