Kukla's Korner Hockey

from the Denver Post,
Avalanche captain Joe Sakic has worn the same shoulder pads since 1989. He stopped wearing them in games two years ago, but still straps them on for every practice.
They look like an old newspaper, held together by a couple pieces of string. They are old enough to look like they should be in a museum. That, or a good laundromat.
“I don’t like new stuff,” said Sakic, 37. “I had to finally break down and change them for the games, though. Otherwise, they would have rusted out.”
