olympic torch to juniors?

DRUTHERS, IT IS COMMONLY accepted, is derived from ’drather, a term coined in the 19th century as slang for “would rather.” Now you know. We also know that given them, we’d be watching NHL players at the Olympics now and forever more-eth. Unfortunately, that’s not happening in 2018, and possibly 2022. During the failed discussions to keep Olympic hockey a best-on-best event, the IOC stated that if the NHL didn’t participate in Pyeongchang, it wouldn’t be invited to Beijing. They’re taking their pots of gold and going home.We’ll learn in the next few years whether that was a bluff. The NHL is eager to grow its global footprint, as evidenced by renewed forays into Europe and China this season. If there’s enough belief among team owners that showcasing hockey’s best…

Jon, then SeanThis one’s a no-brainer: Sean Avery should be the next guest editor of THN. He’d be perfect, and the issue would be sure to create a buzz and excitement. Considering his off-the-ice interests and candidness, he’d be sure to include some interesting pieces in the issue, be it sports, fashion or frank exposes on the game. His past internship at Vogue also gives him some first-hand experience into an editor’s job and what goes into making an issue. There shouldn’t be any hesitation or concern over his “reputation,” as that was only an on-ice routine. I’m sure he’d be focused on the work in the office. This would be right up his alley and would be a hot ticket for THN. Get it done!VAUGHAN BYRNES, KINGSTON, ONT.Missing MartinI…

put skates on houston?

IF IT WEREN’T FOR a series of events that conspired to keep it out of the NHL 40 years ago, we wouldn’t even be talking about Houston as a suitable market for expansion or relocation, because it would have already been in the league, 14 years before the Dallas Stars arrived in Texas.It’s a long and convoluted story but, basically, when the NHL merged with the World Hockey Association in 1979, the Houston Aeros were frozen out of the process. The three Canadian teams – the Edmonton Oilers, Winnipeg Jets and Quebec Nordiques – were shoo-ins. The NHL only wanted four teams, which left the Hartford Whalers and the Aeros as the two remaining candidates. Failure to that point in Sun Belt cities Oakland and Atlanta had the NHL skittish,…
