KK- A Day Of Tests For Me

I apologize for not being able to update yesterday and probably today too.

I have at least three types of tests scheduled today targeting my sinus and unfortunately my heart area.

I will update when up to it.

KK- Out For At Least This Morning

On a mission to find out what ails me. Just have not felt very well for the last 3 weeks and time to get a more thorough diagnosis.

Sinus/flu/cold, I have symptoms of all three.

I have seen a Dr. twice and no improvement so time to get  a real answer.

I am drained, can't sleep for more than 3 hours at a time due to sinus congestion..

Hope to be back later today.

NHL Short Notes


Jean-Gabriel PageauRobin Lehner and Patrick Marleau were among the 55 players on the move as teams made 32 trades on deadline day.

Joonas Korpisalo earned a relief win in his return to the lineup as the Blue Jackets moved back into the second Wild Card spot in the Eastern Conference standings.

* Oilers forward Leon Draisaitl (36-62—98 in 62 GP) enters Tuesday’s game two points shy of his second consecutive 100-point season.


Teams made 32 trades involving 55 players on Monday prior to the 2020 NHL Trade Deadline. The 32 transactions were the most on record for Trade Deadline Day (since 1979-80), just ahead of 2009-10 (31 trades).

* The Hurricanes were busy on Monday adding forward Vincent Trocheck in a trade with the Panthers and a pair of defensemen: Sami Vatanen from the Devils and Brady Skjei from the Rangers.

* The Senators traded forward Jean-Gabriel Pageau, who has scored a career-high 24 goals in 2019-20, to the Islanders for New York’s 1st-round pick in the 2020 NHL Draft (conditional), 2nd-round pick in 2020 and a conditional pick in 2022. Pageau then agreed to a six-year contract with his new team.

KK- Still ill

I've been up half the as the nasal congestion, watery eyes and overall body sourness continues.

I feel worse today than yesterday but hoping improvement begins later today.

So I need to take it easy until I can actually focus on my monitor and keyboard.

I will get back at it as soon as I can.

KK- Out Ill

Flu/cold, whatever you want to call it, I have it.

Hit me midday yesterday, worse by the minute.

NyQuil and Advil products nearby and not sure they are working.

Will post when I can, sorry for the interruption.

Happy Hanukkah

The lighting of the Menorah begins at  sundown tonight.

The miracle of Hanukkah is that only one vial of oil was found with just enough oil to illuminate the Temple lamp for one day, and yet it lasted for eight full days.

KK- One Big Thank You

I wanted to let everyone know the latest KK Donation Drive was a success.

Donations game from folks on Twitter, KK visitors and of course KK members.

Donations ranged up to $200.

I am sincerely thankful and very moved by the generosity.

Back to work I go.

KK- Kukla’s Korner Is Nothing Without You

Yes, it is time for another KK Donation Drive and the good, no, great news is my hosting  cost is covered for the whole season.

You see, a mini-miracle has occurred over the past few years.  A very generous, caring and anonymous person (not a KK member) has made sure Kukla's Korner continues to keep hockey fans informed on a daily basis.

With that, the ad revenue market continues to shrink.  KK is actually being viewed by more people than last year at this point, but ad revenue is on a downward trend.

So if feel KK is worth it, here are the details.

I prefer payment via PayPal (note account name is Shalen Franchini) and also have a GoFundMe account set up too.  Another payment method I'm using is Zelle, which is a way to send a donation through your bank (thanks to a KK member for the tip).  The email address to use is pk @ kuklaskorner dot com

KK members who have donated in the past will receive at least a year of no ads on KK with a donation of $20.

Others will receive the same benefit with a donation of at least $25.

Any amount helps and every donation is much appreciated.

This is what I do, sometimes up to 16 hours a day.  It is my passion and I will continue it as long as the man above allows it.

This post will remain at the top of KK for the next few day.

Happy Thanksgiving America

Hope you are able to enjoy today the way you want and if spending time with family and friends, enjoy the moments and make them lasting memories.

Me? I am taking this day to take a break and relax at home.

I was invited to my cousin's home, but passed to spend some time doing NOTHING.

See you Friday morning, unless of course news of a can't wait variety pops up.
