A few days ago I talked about how the NHL is getting more publicity in its current lockout state, than if the season was actually going on.
The trend continues.
The New York Observer, a very tony New York City weekly is writing about hockey. Or about the lockout, really. And what some of New York’s hockey writers are doing while the game isn’t being played.
So in a lot of ways, the lockout is really promoting the heck out of hockey. It’s a shame the league can’t lock the players out while still keeping the game going. You figure out how to do that, and you’ll have an awful lot of people giving thanks.
Trust me, pilgrims.
