Maybe the emperor has *some* clothes

So, I'm no Bettman apologist -- and I miss the Whalers about as much as a neutral can. But I do have a soft spot for the "non-traditional market" fan. I just watched the Canes win before yet another electric, rocking crowd at the [random bank corp.] Center, and I'm thinking: "Oh yeah, right, hockey just can never work in the South. If you don't grow up with the game, you can't get into it. Damn Bettman." Uh huh. No idea how to explain this sort of thing, though.
