Worlds Colliding

+

From the National Post: (Young hockey fan Michelle Wu) grew up in Canton, Conn., a 30-minute drive west of Hartford. Kevin Dineen was her favourite player. She went to watch the Whalers as often as she could, and when they moved, they took her devotion to the NHL with them. And then, she landed in Atlanta.

No, (the Phoenix) Situation Is Nothing Like Winnipeg, Quebec or Hartford

A fantastic summary of the emotions and realities of a whirlwind week in Glendale. Travis was most kind in mentioning Yours Truly, and he's absolutely correct in his observations.

On Frozen Pond: Panthers to alter uniform colors, perhaps logo

13

From GR: Some team officials have been wanting to change the current logo to the third jersey crest (at left) although owner Cliff Viner is opposed to it, with one staffer telling me he thinks it looks like it belongs to the FIU Panthers -- and doesn't look sharp enough to be a pro logo. He has a great point. While the third crest logo isn't going anywhere for now, word is the Panther with the breaking stick is the logo of the future. In some shape or form. Much more from George above, along with some Whalers goodness. And yes, I've been following the stuff out of Hartford rather closely ;)

Gary Bettman: Issues in Phoenix are "fixable"

+

From Dave Joseph of the Panthers official site: NHL Commish Gary Bettman said on his weekly radio show Thursday the situation with the Coyotes in Phoenix is "fixable" and said relocating franchises in troubled times is not the answer to fixing problems. "When you have fans invest in a franchise emotionally and financially, you just don’t give up on them when times are tough," he said. "If the standard was, ‘When times get tough,’ we would have been out of Chicago for Pete’s sake. We would have been out of Ottawa, Buffalo and Pittsburgh, and they were all situations that were fixable." W4E say: Ummmm, Hartford? Quebec? Winnipeg? Those were evidently "unfixable", right? Smelling a nasty double standard here. And how's that long-promised big-time national TV contract coming along, G-man? Sacrificed a few clubs who had fans "investing emotionally and financially" for decades before the objects of their loyalties were ripped away for the perceived good of the league. Bogus.
