Who Cares

from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun,

I don’t really care about the particulars, about what Gary thinks of Don, or Don thinks of Gary, or who isn’t playing nice with whom, or even this apparent two-week negotiating moratorium, which isn’t a moratorium — but I do care desperately, passionately, historically about hockey.

They can kill my love for the NHL — they have already accomplished that — but they can’t kill my love for the game itself, for the people in it, for the sport I’ve grown up around personally and professionally.

This is a lockout with far more anger than the one eight years ago. This is a lockout far more frustrating. This is a lockout absolutely unnecessary and maybe soon a season lost because of it.

Frankly, I couldn’t care less about the structure of the upcoming collective bargaining agreement, who divides the billions which way, which wealthy player and wealthier owner will benefit: I remain steadfastly anti-everyone involved.

continued plus a fe more hockey notes...
