Yeesh, Katie, if you're going to take a paragraph to launch criticisms, at least put a source or name to it. Not that it's wrong, but "There has been growing concern..." From whom? "causing many to feel..." Who? If you can't get anyone to say it for the story, then just write a column and say it's your opinion.


The problem with admitting it's just her opinion is, there has been growing concern that Strang is a lightweight, and many feel that she really isn't all that knowledgable about hockey. Of course, I wouldn't say that, but some do. You know, they.
