They Love Ice “Hokey”

from the Edmonton Sun,
Like a wandering knight-errant of old, former Edmonton Oiler and 10-year NHL veteran Shjon Podein is roaming far from home in search of not-so-chivalrous adventure. A week before Christmas, the Ice Bucks were in Harbin, China, to take on the hometown Dragons. Hanging from the rafters were English-challenged banners proclaiming "Harbin Love Ice Hokey!" - a not-so-subtle reminder that credibility might still be a bit of a problem. But on the upside, there are no squabbles over salary caps or revenue sharing - just a genuine affinity for binq-cho, something most folks in the People's Republic have seen only in 30-second clips on TV sports highlight shows.
