Ted Lindsay isn't surprised by fan resentment or growing apathy toward hockey in the U.S. due to an NHL lockout that reached 11 weeks on Sunday.
But, what the Detroit Red Wings legend and players union pioneer discovered during a recent trip to Toronto for the Hockey Hall of Fame festivities shocked him.
“When you see Canadians start to bad-mouth their national game, that tells you something is wrong,'' Lindsay said. “I never heard that before from any Canadians. Hockey is their game and they hate seeing what's happening to it.
“That bothered me a great deal.''
