Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Terry Frei at ESPN,
For two days, at least, hunker down. Close ranks. Nurture the “us against the world” mentality, especially among the veterans certain to be on the final roster. Hell, ban cellphones, iPods, PDAs, Blackberrys (sorry, Mr. Balsillie), laptops, camcorders and portable DVD players. (“Don’t bring your $#@* toys!” Don’t close it to the media, of course, but at least draw the line by preventing the folks from the team Web site from posting any of the proceedings and turn it into a slideshow or sideshow.)
No, I’m not saying that if the Islanders for all intents and purposes have a playoff spot locked up by the All-Star break; or the Canucks run away with the Northwest Division; or the Panthers rebound after their annual Rocky Mountain retreat; or the Red Wings seem headed to a 70-win season, that it all can be traced back to “getting away” for camp.
