The State of Hockey in 1966

Here is a 28-minute clip from the CBC archives: http://www.cbc.ca/player/Digital+Arc...ID/2289804434/

It describes a host of issues the NHL was then facing.

I think it also shows that the strong feelings both for and against the NHL that we see on HFBoards have been present for a very long time.

Funny, I'm watching the NHL Network's Day That Changed The Game on the 1967 Expansion.

Philadelphia had a parade before their inaugural season opener from City Hall down Broad Street to the arena... and no one showed up. The people in the streets saw these people going by in convertibles and were wondering who they were.

St. Louis had horrible attendance until the playoff race started and they won the West to make the SCF.

No one cared about the sport in these "non-traditional hockey markets" !

What was Bettman thinking when he expanded teams into all those non-traditional hockey markets?

I love reading this from players and player sycophants alike.
