Kukla's Korner Hockey

The NHL is boasting some of its brightest, most media-friendly players in years with the likes of Alexander Ovechkin and Sidney Crosby. “Sid the Kid” is leading the league in points as a 19-year-old while the 21-year-old Ovechkin is second in the league in goals, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. These guys steal the show wherever they go.
The suggestion here isn’t that ESPN should flood Sportscenter with NHL coverage, as they have with their recently-acquired NASCAR rights (anyone else notice how NASCAR has taken over Sportscenter recently). They should, however, give respect where respect is due and stop ignoring the fact that hockey is in the strongest state it has ever been.
