Kukla's Korner Hockey

More Entertainment Needed

from Jim Kelley of Sportsnet,
For all the attention-grabbing, cost-handling, fan-pandering changes that came with the underwear model and her Warrior Hockey marketing campaign last season, the game made only incremental steps in regards to entertainment value and considering how long it had languished in its no-offense mode, the changes did little more than bring the game back into a focus it had well over a decade ago. As a rule, the NHL still isn't a scoring league in line with say the National Football League, the National Basketball Association or even the seemingly still-juiced Major League Baseball product. On any given night last season it was long periods of up and down action with no real increase in scoring until one of the countless power plays came into being. If that didn't resolve anything, at least a four-on-four overtime and then a shootout sent the fans home happy.
