A Wing and a PrayerIn your overrated and underrated issue (The Ratings Game, Aug. 27), Michael Farber wrote that in hockey, experience is overrated and speed is underrated. Then, in the NHL preview issue you picked the Red Wings to win the Stanley Cup. Detroit made many acquisitions over the summer (including Luc Robitaille, above), but the majority of those players lack speed and have a lot of experience. That's O.K., though. Since you picked them, they won't win anyway.Chris Froiland, Greenfield, Ind.

In business, when you provide the market with a product that nobody wants, you fail, and it is your fault. In pro sports, why is it that when you field a team that fans do not want to support, the blame falls on the fans? Bottom line: Find a need in the market and fill it effectively. That is how you succeed in any business.
