Kukla's Korner Hockey
The panel discussed a few topics including Del Zotto trade talk and travel restrictions during the holidays.
from Jack Todd at the Montreal Gazette,
Because we’re in a giving mood this year, we’re going to strap on our trusty Santa sack, goose the reindeer into action and pass out gifts to those in the world of sports who impressed, distressed, depressed or full-court-pressed us this year.
Marc Bergevin: Jaromir Jagr, the guy he should have signed instead of Daniel Brière.
Mike Babcock: Enough sense to lean heavily on Ken Hitchcock, the smarter coach.
P.J. Stock: A pink slip.
Don Cherry: A five-year case of acute laryngitis.
Ron MacLean: Enough pride to stop fawning around Cherry. Enough humility to stop lording it over everyone else.
Don Cherry and Ron MacLean touched on numerous topics including Cherry stating P.K. Subban has to be on Team Canada.

But some trade talk too...
from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun,
The owner of the voice that just sounds like hockey waits for a telephone call that may never come.
A courtesy call, maybe. A welcoming call. A call out of sheer respect for who he is and what he’s done. Something from his old bosses, his current bosses, maybe the new people who are taking over.
Something to let Bob Cole know anything about today and tomorrow in a broadcast world still swirling from the $5.2-billion Rogers deal that knocked so many people, so many networks, for a loop.
“No one has called me,” said Cole, the voice of Saturday night for so many of our lives, talking on the telephone. “I thought somebody might call, tell me something, say hello, you know...
“Everybody is telling me how I’m supposed to feel about this — ‘Are you upset about this? What does it mean for you?’
Don Cherry opens Coach's Corner with the Thornton/Orpik incident. Cherry and Ron MacLean then discussed the 1st period between the Leafs and Senators. The next topic was regarding the selection process of Team Canada for the WJC.
