Kukla's Korner Hockey
Wow, time has flown by.
Eleven years and four days ago I started blogging about the NHL lockout during that time.
The reason, we were not getting many updates here in Detroit regarding the NHL lockout and I needed more information.
So I started reading and listening to the Canadian sports pages and radio stations. Remember, no social media at that point, it was a lot of leg work and in a way I miss it.
From that day to today, my heart remains in it and I hope to move forward for many years to come.
added 4:48pm, Ooops, I can't count, ten years ago, not eleven like the original headline stated.
May 2015 bring you good health and good times.
No matter how it looks..
French- Joyeux Noël
Polish- Wesołych Świąt
Armenian- Շնորհավոր Սուրբ Ծնունդ: Shnorhavor Surb Tsnund
It all comes out the same.
Have A Merry Christmas and remember the reason for this joyous holiday.
Stay safe, enjoy your time with family and friends and not a bad day for a random act of kindness.
With Christmas quickly approaching, I thought I would lay out my plans for the week.
I am now in relaxed mode through Christmas night but will be posting on a regular basis through the morning of December 24th, then get back at it on December 26th.
We are going to bypass the weekly BoltDraft/KK fantasy game this week but will have two games you can participate in next week. Of course, you can still participate in the numerous games BoltDraft offers.
If you are still doing your holiday shopping, do remember to use the KK affiliate link to Amazon (gift cards too) and I appreciate all of you who have used the link during the holidays and for using it all year long too. I have also added some Amazon banner ads to the far right sidebar on every KK page.
If you are getting a head start on the Holiday, please be safe and enjoy your time with family and friends.
The eight day Festival of Lights begins at sundown tonight.
Out of respect to Jean Beliveau and his family, there will be no posts in the KK Hockey section during the funeral.
Hockey news can wait until the funeral proceedings are complete.
If you wish to watch the funeral mass which starts at 2:00pm ET, do so here.

I woke up this morning with terrible, lower-back pain which is a first for me.
The pain is the type that takes your breath away at times with a misstep but hopefully I just slept wrong.
No matter, I am around but moving kind of slow so updates will be a bit behind today.
I am getting old!
Want to do some Black Friday shopping but avoid all the mayhem?
Amazon.com has sale which ends tonight, so take advantage of those deals.
Added a new banner on 11/29 which runs now thru 12/6.
It's also a great way to help out KK since I receive a small commission for every sale used through the link.
Thanks and happy shopping.
Wishing all KK members, readers and followers on Twitter the best on this day.
Enjoy your time with family and friends and cherish the moments spent with them.
My plan for today is a morning update then the rest of the day relaxing and munching on a cajun turkey with all the fixings.
Friday, back to a regular hockey day for me.
My plan for Thanksgiving Day is do the normal morning update, although it may be a little later than usual.
After that, it is couch time with turkey, football and perhaps a short nap.
There is one NHL game on Thursday, Edmonton at Nashville at 8pm ET and of course if anything big happens in the hockey world, I will certainly cover it.
Otherwise, I will see you on Friday.
