Clarke promises real hockey (Preseason)

Quote:
Clarke promises real hockey
By Jim Kernaghan, Free Press Sports Columnist

Up until the time exhibition games became "preseason" games in the sports vernacular -- about the same time used cars took on the more benign "pre-owned" -- their purpose was pretty straightforward.

It was for players to get into condition while showing team colours to the faithful. And turning a few bucks at the gate and the souvenir stand.

You might even see a star now and then. Mostly, you saw the upper echelon of players taking a few shifts while each team's hopefuls and rookies had it out.

However you want to term what the Brits call friendlies, the Philadelphia Flyers-Atlanta Thrashers game at the John Labatt Centre Sept. 17 will be deadly serious, promises Philly general manager Bob Clarke. It can hardly be anything else under the circumstances.


Slam!

It was a dead link for me.

At any rate, the only question I have for the author of the article is "What constitutes 'unreal' hockey?"

Maybe they'll use card-board cutouts?

Thanks for the link!

I see now. However, it's not like he's announcing that there's scouts in the crowd.
