Moving Down South

from Bill Clement at MSNBC,
I feel that if the Hurricanes prevail over the Oilers in the Stanley Cup finals, interest in the NHL is going to take a step forward in the southern United States. I think it's hard to hold one franchise responsible for growing an interest level in a sport for an entire section of the United States, but the Hurricanes -- with the Stanley Cup in tow --moving along Tobacco Road, and then on to points south will certainly get the attention of southerners. And while hockey is still kind of a regional sport, it's a mandate of NHL commissioner Gary Bettman that the league grow the sport nationally.
