Entries with the tag: ken dryden
Over the past couple weeks, I have been putting together a tome on how fighting in the NHL is slowly, but surely becoming extinct and will soon die a natural death thanks to a number of factors, but mostly to disinterest more than anything else.
But then Ken Dryden came along in the Globe and Mail and that was that. Dryden, he of the Hall of Fame career and legal pedigree made my points so much linine for the bird cage. After all, when you can listen to Ken Dryden, whose epic "The Game" remains one of the standards of writing on sports -- as opposed to sports writing -- then I gladly step away and highlight some of his well founded opinions on why fightning is done.
His opinions, in responside to those of Bobby Orr in his new book, are sure to be picked apart on pre-game shows across North America, but you can be sure, Dryden's way is coming to a rink near you.
