Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Earl McRae of the Ottawa Sun,
“Life is not as much about what happens to us, but what happens in us.”
And because of what happened in Billy Huard—Designated Tough Guy, his hands and fingers scarred, disfigured, and in constant pain, permanent pins in his wrists—Billy Huard deserves to be heard, and NHL commissioner Gary Bettman, like it or not, has an obligation to hear him.
The Open Statement of Billy Huard:
“Since my retirement, I have seen all the rule changes, another lockout, and the demise of the fan base in a big way. And behind much of this seems to be ‘the fighting issue.’ Nobody can figure out how to deal with this. Here is what I, a former fighter, has to say, someone who performed the role for a living.
