Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Jeff Gordon of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch,
Once upon a time, the Blues and Red Wings had a pretty spirited rivalry.
Once upon a time, St. Louis possessed a more consistently competitive team than Detroit did.
More recently, though, the Red Wings have operated a juggernaut while the Blues struggled through an ownership change and the first prolonged funk in franchise history. While the Red Wings added more banners to the Joe Louis Arena rafters, the Blues started over from scratch.
It hasn’t been a happy time for local hockey fans. Watching Nicklas Lidstrom, Henrik Zetterberg and Co. hoist the Cup, again, had to be galling for those who bleed Blues
But you had to be happy for former Blues captain Dallas Drake, right?
