Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Jim Kelley at Sportsnet,
Speed, through all three zones on the ice, needs to be enhanced. Defensive schemes that throw a blanket over offensive talent and creativity need to be cut back. Goaltenders need to be protected, but they also need to either have their equipment reduced in size or the nets they guard enlarged.
The NHL was on that path, but things have changed and it needs to act once again.
It needs to be vigilant in keeping offence and entertainment in the forefront and too much defence and stagnation at bay.
If it doesn’t, it will fail to grow its version of the game and failure to grow the game, in the U.S. and around the world, is a ticket to economic failure for all the teams, even the six forever loved entities across Canada.
