Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Ed Willes of the Vancouver Province,
By now, of course, it’s a well-known fact in these environs that a very sophisticated conspiracy exists in the NHL which has been designed for two purposes.
One, to screw the Vancouver Canucks at every turn.
Two, to call the games in a way which benefits a few select teams. These teams have yet to be identified. The operatives in NHL headquarters, after all, aren’t amateurs. But it seems any team not named the Flames or the Oilers are in on the plot. The Senators might be excluded as well. This just means Stephen Harper isn’t doing his job.
The latest example of this conspiracy occurred Monday night when the big market Los Angeles Kings were in town. Try as they might, and they tried mightily, the officials couldn’t make enough calls to hand the Kings the game and they went down to a 1-0 defeat.
The Kings, in fact, have yet to win a Stanley Cup in their 55-year history. This could mean many things. In Vancouver, we know it’s designed to throw us off the scent.
Now, not all NHL teams support the conspiracy theory. This just means they’re living in a dream world. But if you needed further convincing, I asked to interview NHL v-p Brendan Shanahan on these and other matters and was told Mr. Shanahan would be unavailable because he wants the focus to be on hockey.
