Kukla's Korner Hockey

from the Columbus Dispatch,
In 1997, Dave King moved to Japan and helped get the country’s fledgling hockey program off the ground in time to play host to the Olympics in Nagano.
In 2000, he became the Blue Jackets’ first coach.
Since being fired in 2003, King, 59, has coached in Germany, Sweden and Russia. He spent two years in Siberia—willingly.
The man loves a challenge. And now, it seems, he’s ready for another one.
As the Blue Jackets’ search for a general manager drags on, King, according to a well-placed source in Canada, has made it known that he would like to be considered.
