I always preferred the lower-level hockey to the NHL.  More brutal, more raw, more old-time hockey.  I’ll take the IHL Ice Dogs to the Anaheim Mighty Ducks any day.  Latter couldn’t risk even a scratch on their pretty-boy multi-millionaires like Selanne and Kariya.  This was the 1990s and old time hockey had already gone a… Read More »
