Kukla's Korner Hockey

There is a strong compulsion to dismiss the National Hockey League's latest vow to allow its stars to display their skills -- based on the ample evidence of the league's previous 436 crackdowns on hooking, holding and interference -- as simply marketing hokum from people desperate to sell themselves in the wake of a nuclear winter. But, as seen during the exhibition season and last night, when the 2005-06 regular season officially opened after an entire year of play was lost to a lockout, there is reason to believe, even for all of us cynics. The reason lies not so much in what the referees are calling but in what they are not.
