Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Kevin Paul Dupont of the Bsoton Globe,
Cheapskate though I may be, I would pay the equivalent of a third-row loge seat for a pay-per-view debate over CBA talks between NHL commissioner Gary Bettman and Players Association boss Donald Fehr. Make TSN’s James Duthiethe moderator, and I’ll shell out first-row dough to hear how these two gents would go about divvying up $3.3 billion in revenue . . . The NHL last week announced it was rolling back its work force by 20 percent during the lockout, putting everyone on four-day weeks. A harsher, perhaps more pragmatic approach would have been to fire 20 percent of the staff, something that has become de rigueur in the mainstream media business. But not many media enterprises so easily generate $3.3 billion in annual revenue.
