The Tao of Hockey: Why Portland Needs an NHL Franchise

Description

Hockey and Portland have a lot in common – simple rules, water, speed, part time-ness, and beards, to name a few. At the same time, Portland has but one major league franchise and Tampa Bay Lightning, Phoenix Coyotes, and Atlanta Thrashers are for sale.

Through presenting what makes hockey – the Canadian national sport…Portland loves Canada! – a great match with Portland, this talk will make a skillful, fast, and hard-hitting argument why our city needs an NHL franchise.
