Kukla's Korner

Abel to Yzerman

Well Deserved

Greg Wyshynkski at the Fourth Period has named Kukla’s and Off Wing as his co-Blogs of the Year.

Both Paul Kukla and Eric McErlain have changed the face of hockey blogging, turning entertaining Web sites into fully-staffed, must-read daily visits. They’ve also landed some pretty plum gigs — Paul with NHL.com, Eric with NBCSports.com — and have championed the rights of the alternative media to become credentialed members of the press box. Kudos to both on an outstanding, and eventful, year.

What Greg doesn’t say, but I will, is that both Eric and Paul have blazed a path for hockey bloggers.  Their efforts, along with others, have established this medium’s credibility in ways we never would have predicted a year ago.

Congrats to both.

added by Paul at 3:06pm,  Thanks Greg for the props and IwoCPO for pointing this out, it is much appreciated.
Adding both Alanah and IwoCPO to the Korner was one of the smarter moves that I have made, we all look forward to a great 2007.

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977.  No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y.  Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation.  There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature.  Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that. Your suggestions and critiques are welcome: wphoulihan@gmail.com
