Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,
It’s one thing for a player to be shadowed on the ice by a checker, the way Jaromir Jagr was for a time by Jay Pandolfo, or Bobby Hull was by a pest named Bugsy Watson.
It’s quite another thing, however, for a player to be shadowed on the ice by game officials, the way that Sean Avery has been by referees and linesmen alike throughout the first three games of his return to the Rangers.
The NHL is on trial here every much as is Avery, the man Gary Bettman suspended for saying bad words on television, but whose television partners have no trouble exploiting to attract and keep viewers.
