NHL is Overly Criticized

From ‘The Carulli Critique’ at the Sporting News:

The NHL is by far the most heavily criticized major sport in North America. Major TV networks (ahem, ESPN) and casual fans everywhere don’t think twice about taking cheap shots at hockey. They’ll talk about how fighting is a disgrace, how there’s consistently an on ice attack every year, or how the NHL is embarrassing because they’re on a network that isn’t shown by many major cable networks. That’s about the extent of the criticisms that anybody has about hockey, and the only legitimate one is about some violent on ice occurrences, but even that is pretty rare. It may seem frequent because the only time ESPN cares about showing the NHL is when something controversial happens.
