I know that hockey is important to some misguided souls.
I can't entirely fathom why, but I'm prepared to respect those who feel the need for a little institutionalized violence in their lives.
The thing is, the National Hockey League also enjoys institutionalized lockouts that seem to make whole seasons disappear.
There's one occurring right now. Progress seems to be running slightly behind the pace of DSL.
Perhaps one shouldn't be surprised, then, that the Chicago Blackhawks' Dave Bolland appears to support the, um, death of NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman.
