Hi Savey! After watching you play for years it's nice to meet you in cyberspace. It's also great to hear you've settled nicely into a post pro hockey life.

I'd like to get your feel on the hockey culture in the southern U.S. I know it ranks low in the grand scheme of things down there, but if hockey is to catch on and reap the lucrative U.S. television contract(s) Bettman and the owners so crave it has to be cultivated through a generation or two of hockey playing and watching fans. Do you get the sense if some of these teams moved those areas would suffer collapsed minor hockey associations? On that note, do smaller market U.S. teams participate in cultivating and aiding local minor hockey programs?

Thanks in advance.

P.S. Kirk Muller and I are both from Kingston. A classier gentleman you could not find. I imagine he made a hell of a team mate. Craig Rivet also played junior here. I'd love to hear what he's up to these days.
