Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Damien Cox at ESPN,
Today, it’s fair to say the majority of NHL fans are far more familiar with the Original 21. Or the Original 30 (“You mean Nashville hasn’t always had a team, Grandpa?”).
Still, the Red Wings might well be the league’s most popular team on a city-by-city basis, with the Rangers not that far behind.
So, to some, there is a special allure to those six franchises. In Canada, the Leafs and Habs always will be viewed through a different telescope than the Canucks, Senators, Oilers and Flames.
You could argue, however, that the league has spent more time promoting all of its new franchises than protecting the integrity and status of the so-called Original Six.
