Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Adam Proteau of the Hockey News,
“Sorry, Canada!” Samueli told the assembled throng at Anaheim’s Stanley Cup celebration. “Welcome to the new Hockeytown: Anaheim, California!”
However, in the larger context of what always happens in the NHL playoffs, Samueli’s soft, playful jab represented another instance of the misdirected nationalism that never fails to inject itself into hockey circles.
Frankly, I’m as sick and tired of that kind of nonsense as I am of the ceaseless debate about officiating. I certainly don’t blame Samueli for getting swept up in the emotion of a championship party, but it’s high time hockey people got over their fixation about citizenship and its relation to the game.
