Commentary, opinion and news on the world of hockey.

Moving to Europe...

So, hockey is more or less gonzo for the year. However, At the very least, we will get to see the freakshow, a.k.a. the collective bargaining process, continue on for months on end. Or, you could do what I am about to - take up bowling. For the time being, the PBA is my new best friend. That is, until they decide to lock out the bowlers.

Once that happens, where can I turn. Ah, the answer to that is simple - cricket! Man, those that what you call them? They can sure keep the average fan glued to the television for literally 3 or 4 days.

O.k. fine. Maybe cricket isn't the answer. And bowling won't quite cut it either, regardless of the highly toned athletes and despite the fact that they don't have the instigator rule. So what is one to do without NHL hockey?

Well, there's plenty of commentary and hockey analysis on television, radio and in the newspapers. You could always watch Hockey Central and come to the obvious conclusion that Nick Kypreos was a better hockey player than a hockey analyst. Or you could enjoy watching Tie Domi saturate the screen with his incredible insight to the latest NHL offer.

In all seriousness, I will turn my attention from the pro ranks and immerse myself completely into junior hockey. The World Junior Championships are on the way and will provide almost as much enertainment as back to back press-conferences featuring Gary Bettman and Bob Goodenow. Aside from that, the WHL is always a sure bet for entertaining hockey. However, due to my home-team's current record, I just may have to start cheering for another team (but never the Rockets).
