Let us establish, right up front, what this isn't. It's not a prototype of Gary Bettman's new, giant, soccer-style nets.

This creative installation appears to be an ad for Alba Volán Székesfehérvár, a Hungarian hockey team that, by all accounts, dominates their league. They've won 10 consecutive Hungarian championships -- 10!! -- probably all thanks to Ric Jackman, the Dallas Stars' 5th overall pick from 1996, who has settled there. The club's season opened on September 7.
How did Hungary beat Canada to this idea? Seriously, how? Way to drop the ball, Harper administration.
