Even though Gary Buttman has guided the Atlanta Thrashers to Winnipeg, it doesn’t mean he’s thrilled about it. But maybe while he’s in Vancouver he’ll see the passion of Canadian hockey fans. Witness – the Vancouver Province today has 56 pages of hockey coverage.
Fifty-six freaking pages of hockey.
Would Phoenix, for example, have 56 pages of hockey news if the Coyotes were in the finals? Two pages maybe. One probably.
Maybe Vancouver in the finals will wake the Buttman up.
