Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Bob McKenzie of TSN,
Sources say the league is currently negotiating to place the 2008-09 regular season opener in one of three venues - either Prague, Stockholm or a German city from a group that includes Hanover, Munich or Frankfurt.
No word yet on which NHL clubs might get the call.
It would seem obvious that this London event is the first step in the league’s attempt to significantly heighten awareness of the NHL “brand” in Europe and that with each passing year there is going to be a greater emphasis on exposing the European market to the NHL product.
