Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Eric Francis of the Calgary Sun,
For the second game in a row, the 28-year-old winger was the game’s top player, not only for being a defensive stalwart but for scoring the winning goal.
Not just any ol’ game-winner — a second consecutive roof-job that froze rookie Robin Lehner late in the second frame of a surprisingly close game.
Add to that another solid penalty-killing effort, and it was evident to all those watching No. 20 was the biggest difference-maker of the evening.
Savour those type of performances, Flames fans, as the odds are long acting GM Jay Feaster will be able to keep Glencross in the fold past July 1.
After all, if Niklas Hagman is making US$3 million and Matt Stajan is making $3.5M a year, what is the value of a second-line winger who actually scores? And hits, amongst other things.
