Nonis Correct & Wrong

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,
Funny how it goes. Vancouver Canucks' general manager David Nonis was both right and wrong on Monday, in comments he made to a British Columbia Chamber of Commerce luncheon that made everyone in the National Hockey League sit up and take notice. Nonis was right to criticize the unbalanced schedule on two levels: How unfair it is, in terms of travel to Western Conference teams; and how the schedule isn't as fan friendly as it should be, in an era when the league still needs to make marketing inroads in some of its fringe markets. But Nonis was wrong to dump all over the new system of free agency, adopted by the NHL as part of the last collective bargaining agreement.
