Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Ken Gray of the Ottawa Citizen,
Look, I’m a big fan of journalist/businessman Mark Sutcliffe and his column Sports Ink in the Citizen. Don’t get me wrong.
Sutcliffe and I might not agree on everything (remember your Canadian Tire column, Mark?), but you have to like his entrepreneurism and contribution to this community.
That said, I didn’t agree with his Sports Ink column on Sunday. I’m not as big a supporter of NHL commissioner Gary Bettman as Sutcliffe, not at all.
Bettman has orchestrated a league that has absolutely glorified violence to the point where the players are being irreparably harmed. Concussions from head hits and fighting would have normal business owners concerned. Sutcliffe would do something about it in his workplace. The pads are too hard. Bettman should have acted.
Furthermore, the game is basically flawed.
