Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Terry Jones of the Edmonton Sun,
It was the second practice for Team Canada when Pat Burns was out on the ice barking at the players.
Barking. Like only Pat Burns can bark.
If you weren’t sure what it was going to be like with the survivor of four years of cancer treatment joining Ken Hitchcock’s team as an associate coach, the answer was pretty much obvious right then and there.
“At the first practice he was barking at us,” laughed Hitchock of Burns shouting at himself and his other two coaches, Craig MacTavish and Mike Johnston.
“When a guy has been out of the game for four years, you think you’ll sort of ease him in. That lasted one day.”
