Now, don’t take this the wrong way; I am as big of an NHL fan as the next guy. I am just as bummed to be watching basketball rather than having a few cold beers in front of NHL network on my TV.. A little coaches corner, a little Don Cherry. I wanna hear the sweet words of O Canada, following the Star Spangled Banner of course. However, is December too late to start a season, is there a point to start now, outside of “just playing the game”? We have already lost the Classic, which really is the only reason I look forward to New Years Day. Can you really judge a team on half a season? Is ‘The Cup‘ void if they play? or will there be an asterisk next to the winners name? These are the questions we should have answered today.
Surely outside of my love for the sport one of the biggest reasons I would like to see some sort of season is for the crews of the arenas, they are losing out hard in this deal, these guys need the NHL to survive.. however I am sure Bettman is not in the least concerned about this.
Regardless, I voted today… I voted for the NHL. (Ha, that’s going to be my first paid endorsement.)
