Kukla's Korner Hockey

Everyone Cheering

from the Globe and Mail,
Cal Nichols stood outside the Edmonton Oilers' dressing room the other night and savoured the moment. Oiler fans were everywhere. They were cheering and hugging and celebrating like they hadn't in years. It was spontaneous, recalled Nichols. Good for the spirit. "It was a Monday night and no one wanted to go home." And at that moment, Nichols was able to answer the 'why am I doing this?' question he had often asked himself whenever things would turn tenuous and a top player would leave and the very existence of the Oilers would teeter on the brink.
