Is Kukla Cuckoo?

To explain, Paul’s NHL.com blog yesterday made the following statements:

Four-on-four, bigger ice, shrink the goalie pads, bigger nets, heated blades … on and on I could go.

I say no to all. No to any changes. No, no, no!

Our game is just fine. Maybe it is time for the coaches and players to decide how to beat the trap. Some teams have no problem with it, why can’t the others figure it out?

Then today, I read Dave Pollard’s response at Hockey.com, in his post titled “Kukla cuckoo if he thinks NHL will change itself”:

I have to admit I’m a fan of Paul Kukla’s work.

But this time I think the respected NHL.com blogger sounds like he’s gone a few rounds with Bob Probert. He’s a tad loopy.

(Actually, I think the politically correct term is “post-concussion syndrome.”)

Geez, was Kukla’s preference really that radical an opinion?  I tend to agree with it, myself.

Regardless, it’s fun to debate the issues and disagreements.  We all love hockey, yet we all seem to passionately disagree on the ways to make it better.

But all’s well that ends well—I’m just thrilled for the excuse to call the boss Cookoo Kukla for the rest of this season… smile
