I agree that he'd done tons for grass roots hockey in Southern California, which is definitely more important than the Ducks. But I'm talking about the Ducks, and not hockey as a whole. He does practically nothing to promote the Ducks outside of Fox Sports, a few places around Anaheim, and I guess you can count the Rinks program because Ducks logos are plastered all over those places. Of course, that has nothing to do with what we see on the ice, but how do you expect to sell tickets to a non-traditional market if you don't promote the team like a mofo.
