The NHL Needs “Haves”

from Terry Frei of ESPN,
Given the state of the NHL's post-lockout image, when you hear someone mention the NHL and "parity" in the same sentence, a common initial reaction should be to think screenwriter Nancy Dowd is working on a legitimate "Slap Shot" sequel. ("Slap Shot 2" doesn't count.) It could be about what happens after commissioner Gary Bettman announces the league is expanding to 128 teams, finally getting around to Charlestown after the reopening of the mill. Or maybe we would wonder whether the Zucker brothers are planning to do to hockey what "Airplane" did to commercial airlines. Come to think of it, Leslie Nielsen could play a bumbling owner. The league indeed is ripe for parody. Oh. Par-i-ty?
