Pucks that are manufactured in the U.S.A. rather than imported from the Czech Republic.

Change is sometimes good and sometimes bad. For instance, when I'm buying nachos, if I have change in my pocket I can use it instead of breaking another dollar bill. That can be good as I save the bill and get rid of the heavy change. BUT, change is heavy and can be cumbersome to carry. So bills are better. But are they? Bills are so fragile they have a life span of 18-22 months whereas a coin has a life span of about 25 years! Both have their pros and cons.

Sometimes I give my change to the homeless people in the Orange Line tunnels near State. It makes me feel happy to help others.

I think Osorojo's posts are kind of like change. Both are annoying to deal with when around and don't have the short life span some people hoped for but generally are discarded quickly in some way without much thought.

Terry Pegula.

Hard to disagree. To his credit Pegula is apparently involved in hockey more for the love of the game than for profit (Sabers?). He is also spending his money in the U.S. rather than investing it offshore or hiding it in banks in Switzerland or the Cayman Isles. Or kvetching.

Kvetching? Of course I know what it means, but I really wasn't expecting to find a Yiddush expression here, especially when used to describe a guy name Pegula. Here's to more colorful speech!:D

your question pre-supposed that "change" in fact has occurred during the last decade. Although teams' conference affiliations have been re-aligned, that doesn't "change" college hockey; it merely changes how the teams' schedules are organized; college hockey itself seems pretty much the same now as it was it was in 2003, as far as I can tell.

What about the other 10% of former college hockey fans that no longer care about college hockey?

That doesn't seem like a difficult concept to me, a rather large exaggeration maybe. Mainers being a large contingent of Hockey fans in the East have a large % of their former fan base that could care about Timmay coached hockey.

Several hundreds of posts about conference re-alignment appeared to be concerned with more than "schedule changes." Few posts dwelled upon the status quo. I admit to and stand by my supposition that change has in fact occurred during the last decade.

Nah. It's all about the math. He under exaggerated.

If (fill in a number, lets say 100 for ease of use) "former college hockey fans in the East no longer care about college hockey", then why'd he say only 90 of 100 (90%) of former college hockey fans in the East no longer care about college hockey? A former fan is a former fan.
