Here’s an idea…time for a new professional hockey league in Canada. 8 teams. Let’s see…um….Halifax, Sherbrooke, Markham, Brandon, Whitehorse, Saskatoon, Red Deer and how about Kelowna…..just off the top of my brain. It doesn’t have to be a squillion dollar outfit. Go for medium size markets. Pay players a decent living. Aim for 4 or 5 thousand people per game. Start with a grass roots league and see what happens. Make it about the love of hockey. Make it Canadian. Take back hockey from the gazillionaires. Tie it in tight with the communities. Ok I’m just talking. I haven’t studied anything. I don’t know all the angles. But if ever there was a time to do it, this is it. Leave the NHL squabbling over the big cash. I think the Canadian Hockey League would make for a hockey revolution.
