The right claimed Pepe despite the creator not wanting anything to do with what the character had become via memes. Doubt Gritty was put out there in mind for something like that to happen. It's just people trying to make something happen of someone else's work. The NHL isn't going to align themselves or their intellectual products to the left or the right.

I think they already have aligned themselves. Think of the modern stances they have now: when it comes to animal rights, racial issues, sexual assault allegations, promoting LBGTIQ sex, cracking down on fighting and hard hits, instant replays, drinking, free speech of players, etc. It actually surprised me when they promoted a bit about the old "Broadstreet Bullies" since bullying is such a no-no now and something always criticized.   ;)

NHL has been long supporting the lgblt-wxyz scene - they wouldn't have the Canadiens or Women's National programs without it. Or Sean Avery. As far as sexual assault allegations, the team and league stood by Pat Kane though his faulty accusations. Now when it comes to some piece of trash like Voynov, that's a different story. Crazy Eurotrash, what ya gonna do?

Side note, Chicago has been getting assaulted in the fartbox all season - surprisingly up on Minnesota in the 3rd right now - Gary has yet to step in.

I don't really much care about the Carolina Hurricanes even though I live here now. I will admit that their TV announcer, John Forslund, is a hoot.

Not a Canes fan either - always thought of them as one of the forgotten teams in the past handful of season since they've been hot garbage, but after catching a few games this years, I wouldn't mind seeing them in person.

Vegas and Winnipeg should be a good one tonight. May have to tune in to see the Sharks-Pens tonight too.

To me, way down deep, they are still just The Whale that played their games in a Mall.    Bleech.
