Looking at the big picture, the league won't struggle even 1/10th as much as the NHL in years to come -- of all the wildest predictions I heard in Phoenix, the craziest came from a connected executive who predicted that fifteen NHL teams would go under within the next two years (and was dead serious) -- and Major League Baseball is about to get creamed beyond belief.I look at that quote and immediately, IMMEDIATELY, can think of only one thing. Al Gore.
Bill Simmons is super, super, serial.
15? Half the league? Christ, if our Government is throwing money at banks so they can throw big ole Earth, Wind, & Fire jamborees, there's no way a couple million can't be spared to entertain the masses. I'm not sayin, I'm just sayin.
But then again, Obama's been spotted at Washington Wizards games...yes, the woeful 14-46 Wiz, but not at a single Capitals game, you know the first place 40-19-5 Capitals. I think we need another South Park clip.
The NHL is doomed.
Oh by the way, Bill Simmons, stick to the NBA, that suits you best. One last video jusssssst for you.
