Kukla's Korner Hockey

Sorry fo the delay of posts this morning, slept way too long.
from Elliotte Friedman of CBC,
- As the Winnipeg Jets close their season, I can't help but look at Evander Kane and think, "That guy is a lot more hurt than he and they are letting on."
- Boston Bruins head coach Claude Julien shot down questions aboutZdeno Chara needing a break. "It's a lot of BS right now," Julien told reporters. "We have to ... quit hiding behind those excuses." That might be true, but will the team find time to rest Jaromir Jagr? He's one guy they'd probably want to sit before the playoffs.
- I spoke to Red Wings head coach Mike Babcock last Friday in preparation for our Detroit/Vancouver broadcast. I opened the conversation by saying, "Thanks for making time, know it hasn't been easy..." He stopped me right there. "The one thing you can control is your attitude," he said. Babcock made it very clear that no matter how much the media or fans may be down on Detroit, he doesn't have time for that. "We have a lot of young players with a chance to make the playoffs. We have to be excited about that challenge for them."
- Babcock's been impressed by what he's seen so far from Danny DeKeyser. "He may not be a big point-getter, but he knows how to go and get [the puck]," Babcock said. "He also knows how to get it to the right person to get us going."
more plus a look at the Canucks...
