Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Mike Brophy of CBC,
Pushing the baby stroller with his lovely wife Sabrina through the swanky shopping district of Yorkville in downtown Toronto, Colton Orr looks to be the poster child for peace and contentment.
Baby Charlotte sleeps soundly as her parents enjoy a sunny afternoon stroll. Her father, meanwhile, seems a million miles removed from his job that puts him in harm's way daily.
Orr - talk about a hockey name! - has scraped and clawed his way back to the NHL. At one time he was one of the most feared fighters in the league. It looked as though his time had come and gone after the Toronto Maple Leafs demoted him to the Marlies of the American Hockey League.
Once seemingly invincible, Orr, like so many tough guys, had become the victim of a concussion. He'll joke that he has had just one, but you know that's not the truth. Still, he was determined to keep playing, even though many in the Maple Leafs organization cringed every time he dropped his gloves.
