Granted it's not what a hockey purist would prefer but isn't it more like public relations? Just asking.
While I understand the premise of your post, I don't agree with the way in which it was initially covered by the paper. It was amateur and disingenuous. Yes I want more fans to like the team, but I want them to like the TEAM (or sport.) I don't think we're still in a situation where marketing a famous country singer's husband is the most beneficial way of going about that. Maybe a few years ago, but right now it's embarrassing.

I could be completely wrong in all of this. I'm not even going to pretend for a second that I have it all figured out. It's my opinion
