Kukla's Korner Hockey

from the Nashville City Paper,
“A hockey team’s chemistry is huge. You need the guy who will go into the corner and take a check. You need a guy who will get a cross check to his back or a stick to his head to make a play to a guy in front to score a goal. You have to have something in common off of the ice. Our guys get along well as a group.”
One area Poile particularly likes is the way the role players fulfill what is expected of them.
“A great thing about hockey is it is truly a team game,” Poile said. “Kariya, Arnott and Sullivan are some our best, but the most they are on the ice is 20 minutes, one-third of a game. You have to have contributions from everybody and we are getting contributions throughout our lineup.
