Im not a big fan of branch, the value comment was what IMO the owners care about, not me. Hes been around for a while so hes either got discerning pics of owners or they feel he does a good enough job to justify his employment.
We better be safer on airplanes for all the crap we put up before boarding. I recently spent 20 hours on 4 separate flights in a 36 hour span and would have felt less violated had I spent that time in the showers at the YMCA.

Branch is basically taking credit for the growth of junior hockey but that has happened in spite of him, not because of him. The NHL lockouts put junior hockey in a bigger spotlight, the mustache had nothing to do with that. The popularity of the world junior tournament has also contributed greatly to the league's growth. This high profile tournament is driven by TSN and hockey Canada, not Branch and the CHL. If Branch were doing a good job then his league wouldn't completely bomb in the biggest hockey market that exists on the planet.
