Kukla's Korner Hockey

Friday marks the start of full conference play, the first chance to judge if the new National Hockey League has retained any of its old flavour, pitting the wide-open West against the super-sized East. Kicking it off are clashes between division leaders, the Ottawa Senators and Los Angeles Kings, and the Carolina Hurricanes against second-place Dallas Stars. Among the most-excited observers in the coming weeks will be pro scouts such as Maple Leafs' Craig Button. "I think the East has been in transition for a couple of years, but we've had nothing to use as a measuring stick until now," Button said. "It will be good to see how Ottawa looks against Vancouver or what Tampa Bay does against Nashville. Then you have the individual matchups; Robyn Regehr against Dany Heatley, or Bryan McCabe on Jarome Iginla."read on
