Kukla's Korner Hockey

“To me, this was the best team in 11 years of the organization,. This franchise had the best players. Right now, they can not blame [Ilya] Kovalchuk or [Slava] Kozlov. They have to take responsibility, because I think ownership did everything right, signed good players, they have a good goalie, good defense—but something is missing. I think we are missing from the coaching staff. Looks like they have fun, but unfortunately in the NHL you have to work. You have to prepare for every game.
“There are lots of good teams in the NHL and you think you are a good team if you see the roster. That doesn’t work in this league. You have to do homework and work hard. I think I can put a big question mark that they weren’t preparing.”
-Slava Kozlov of the Atlanta Thrashers. More from Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
This may be a first, I have never heard Kozlov cal anyone out.
