Kukla's Korner Hockey

The Bruins have tested our patience and our wallets. They have teased us, tricked us, turned us off. Every season, they promise it will be different. The purge from last year's woeful campaign included the coach, the GM, the former superstar, even the fan's favorite foil (adieu, Hal Gill, you deserved better). This is a new day, a new team, and with the exception of a few stalwarts (Murray, PJ Axelsson, Patrice Bergeron), the Bruins are out for blood with new blood of their own. Phil Kessel wants to be part of this turnaround. Desperately. Not all 18-year-olds with just one season of college hockey can make this jump, and the Bruins are reserving judgment about their top pick (No. 5 overall). The skills are clearly there. But is the proper mind-set? ``I want to make this team really badly," Kessel said. ``It's the reason I left college. I know it's hard for them. They want to look out for my best interests. I've got to live with whatever they decide, but I'd be disappointed if I don't make it.more
