Kukla's Korner Hockey

from John McGourty of NHL.com,
Gordie Howe has one piece of advice for aspiring young hockey players, or for anyone contemplating doing anything: Don’t do it if you don’t love it!
That was Howe’s answer when asked which of the 1950s dynastic NHL teams was better, his Detroit Red Wings that won four Stanley Cups in six years or the 1956-60 Montreal Canadiens that won five-straight Stanley Cups.
“How would I know?” Howe said. “I never saw myself or my teammates play. I’m no judge. I didn’t play the game to be called the best or be the leading scorer. I played because I loved it and I loved to win and I was lucky to play with others who felt the same way and we won a few championships.”
