Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Eric Francis of the Calgary Sun,
The league needs more players like Andrew Ference.
While stodgy, old-school hockey logic suggests the Boston Bruins defenceman was being a bad teammate for suggesting Dan Paille’s maiming of Raymond Sawada was “a bad hit,” the reality is he’s being refreshingly honest and progressive with his frank assessment.
“It’s not about throwing a guy under the bus,” Ference told the Sun.
“It’s about being honest with guys, and if you have a strong room, you can call a spade a spade. I talked to the coach about it, and the only way to be honest about it is to switch jerseys. If it was Bergie (Patrice Bergeron) who got hit, how would we look at it?”
