Does anyone care?
Hockey is back! It's the sport with the ice and the fights. Sounds like the players got creamed, but I doubt there was any other way to try and run a league that big.
From my vantage point, any competitive boost the new deal gives to the Predators will be more than offset by the dropoff in fans the first year. They had better be a winning team, or it will last more than a year. And if they're smart they will give me a break on my season ticket. Wouldn't that be proper fan relations? But somehow I foresee neither happening. Things may get much worse for hockey before they get better.
