Kukla's Korner Hockey

The NHL In 43 Years

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,

What should the NHL look like in the middle of this century, when today’s issues — obstruction, goal-scoring, officiating, U.S. television exposure — are hopefully finally put to bed.
By then, a 32-team entity, with eight teams in Canada, eight in Europe and 16 in the United States would make the most sense. Travel, of course, would be the biggest single issue in a global game.
Maybe the NHL could purchase half-a-dozen of whatever the 2050 equivalent of the Concorde is and use them as a means of getting teams from one end of the continent to the other and then overseas, as necessary — thereby pooling all travel costs within the industry and not necessarily penalizing Vancouver and Dallas for being geographically so remote from the rest of the league.

more... and some Drury talk…
