NHL in great shape

Corey Kendall, St. John’s, Nfld.

The 2010 NHL playoffs are proving once again just how great the game of hockey is. But the NHL also has arguably the most disgruntled fans in sports.

What won’t fans complain about these days? Officiating, shootouts, the schedule, Gary Bettman’s tenure as commissioner, etc.

Fans always seem to have a beef with the NHL now. I hear people talking about how great the NHL “used to be.” What about now?

It’s still a great game to watch. Sure, there are plenty of issues, but the league is in very good shape…much better than things looked before the lockout.

Relax, the NHL is in tip-top shape whether some people believe that or not.
