Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Ron Cook of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette,
That’s why it’s possible — perhaps even likely — that Olczyk will coach again. He was fired in December 2005 after a season-and-change with the Penguins, a time when he was young, overmatched and had little support from the organization.
It would have to be the right opportunity for Olczyk, of course. He has a great television gig, two actually. He works the NBC telecasts with Mike “Doc” Emrick — the best national play-by-play man in any sport — and does commentary for the Chicago Blackhawks with legendary local broadcaster Pat Foley. “He’s to Chicago what Mike Lange is to Pittsburgh,” Olcyzk said. “I have been so lucky.”
So why even consider giving it all up?
“I still have a burning desire to teach,” Olczyk said. “I have a passion to be a part of the wins and losses. I think I would like to fulfill that emptiness. At the end of the day, I’m a coach by trade who happens to have a microphone.”
