Kukla's Korner Hockey

Demolition Man

from Larry Wigge of NHL.com,
I remember standing next to future Hall of Fame goaltender Patrick Roy near the bench area after a Red Wings practice early in the 2001-02 season and listening to Roy speak apathetically -- and yet admiringly -- about Holmstrom. "Look at him," Roy said, watching Holmstrom stand in front of the net trying to deflect shots from Chris Chelios for nearly 15 minutes. "He could be satisfied in being a pain in the *@% the rest of career. But he's trying to do more ... and I'll bet he succeeds, too."
