Still a fan but won’t pay price
Re: Support those hurt most by NHL lockout, Jan. 15 editorial.
So, the NHL players and owners have finally agreed. Big deal.
How many people have they hurt with their never-ending greed?
I am an avid hockey fan, but enough is enough. No one needed to bear any hockey withdrawals, since there are other, not just NHL teams, in Canada. Many followed the Giants and other Western Hockey League teams. Over the holidays there was the Spengler Cup in Switzerland with Cory Schneider defending the Ambri Piotta net. There were the World Junior Championships in Russia, proudly featuring Ryan Nugent-Hopkins as Canadian captain.
All most entertaining.
It will be long time before I will buy another NHL hockey ticket.
As suggested in the PAN editorial, fans should go to the local pubs and watch the games.
As always, Go Canucks Go!
