Kukla's Korner Hockey

“I find it hypocritical that men who made their money fighting or playing the tough guy are now telling people it shouldn’t be part of the game. I think it’s part of hockey—no one’s ever got killed fighting. I think there’s got to be atonement on the ice. You take a shot at a team’s best player, then you need to pay the price.”
“I honestly can’t stand what’s happening in hockey right now. I don’t think the players know what they can and can’t get away with. I obviously think the players should have more respect for each other when they hit each other, but I saw [NHL head of player safety Brendan] Shanahan suspend a guy two games for high sticking. That’s just crazy. It can’t go on like this.”
