I am sure that the heat produced from all our indoor rinks are not helping the thermal retention properties of the Earth’s polar caps. However don’t count on the USA giving up on trying to build on hockey as a youth sport here. Its growing but, the only real problem we are faced with is how expensive it is to put a child through ANY hockey program. You should consider yourselves blessed when the cold weather freezes your ponds and park rinks. Things are changing and one of them is the diversity of sports offered to our youth at school. We didn’t have Ice Hockey, Lacrosse, Soccer or Field Hockey teams when I was in high school. Now sports for women are even being expanded. I am still waiting for a WNHL. Gotta love womens hockey! Who cares if they don’t check or aren’t as skilled? Just hearing the pretty voices and seeing those pretty eyes inside the visors is enough to make it worth watching.
You forgot Minnesota HockeyHead.]]>
that is why ice hockey is regional. new england and michigan and colorado are just a few areas that are big on hockey.
look at the other countries as well. all cold. finland, sweden, russia and so on.
don’t laugh too hard tho, with global warming, canada might be like the us someday]]>
how bout ben franklin? anyway, i think my point is taken…..and i know i love canada just as much as i love america. i am half french canadian.
i feed of this stuff unfortunately and jackman had been posting some pretty nasty shit.
i think everyone in north america feels pretty bad that young men and women are killed everyday over what appears to be a very illadvised decision.
no matter who is in office…someone will complain….how this has to do with the state of hockey i don’t know……..you could blame bettman and he is american but really does the location of where he lives really mean anything?
it is entertaining in its own way but i would rather be giving habs fans the business over a playoff defeat by the b’s.]]>
