New NHL Is Working

from Mike Ulmer of the Toronto Sun,
Backlash? What backlash? NHL commissioner Gary Bettman said there has been no cold shoulder from fans after a lockout aborted the 2004-2005 season. "Actually based on all the indications we have so far, season ticket sales are up 3% and individual game sales are up pretty significantly as well," said Bettman. "We think attendance should be comparable if not better than in 2003-04." Raise your hand if you read comments from players, owners, marketers, writers, coaches and msytics of all denominations who predicted it would take years to recover from the nuclear winter of a last season. Yeah, me too.
