Kukla's Korner Hockey

Good, Bad & Ugly

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,
The ugly ideas include adoption of the shootout, which trivializes the sport; the commitment to use tight, form-fitting uniforms that everyone but everyone who's worn them or seen them up close despises, in the 2006 Olympics and then for the 2006-07 season; and the new, "My NHL" ad campaign that is at best, a turnoff, and at worst, offensive. The ugly concepts include the suggestion that the NHLPA should just go along with the hiring of Ted Saskin without a full review of the CBA debacle. The ugliest free-agent signing was the Rangers' addition of Marek Malik for three years at $2.5M per. The ugliest situations will take place in Detroit, where the marquee Red Wings will capsize; in Toronto, where the marquee Maple Leafs will be very bad; in Colorado, where the fans will have to begin to settle for less. The ugly teams will include the Rangers; the Caps, who have given up; the Hurricanes; and the Blues.
