Comments: Blip on the Radar Dept.

I haven't paid much attention to NHL hockey since Booby Orr and Phil Esposito retired. On the other hand I have greatly enjoyed AHL hockey, particularly the Manchester Monarchs. Somehow I think that few will miss the NHL this season....

Sheesh, I gotta preview my comments before posting.

A good minor-league hockey game is definitely better than its major league counterpart, I think, in terms of actually going to see the game. Of course, I grew up with minor-league hockey back home, so I'm a bit biased; but there's something to be said for it. The athletes play well, and the ticket prices are generally cheap, and one can actually afford to buy stuff for one's family at the concessions. It's quite a concept.
