Hahn and hockey

Finally, someone has made a connection between local politics and hockey that I can give a link. It's a fleeting connection, but still. NBC Sports contributor Evan Weiner has a piece on MSNBC analyzing the silence from big-city politicians about the lost jobs and other fallout from the National Hockey League owners' shutdown of the sport. He writes: "There has been a deafening silence from mayors, including New York's Michael Bloomberg, Los Angeles' Jim Hahn, Chicago's Richard Daley, Philadelphia's James Street and their smaller NHL city counterparts, about the lockout, which is entering its fifth month."
