Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,
There are those who may wonder why Bob Hartley, fresh off a championship season in the Swiss league, would consider taking over the Calgary Flames, the definition of an NHL team mired in mediocrity.
Those are people who don’t know much about Hartley, and his deep-seated penchant to just win, baby.
“I’m a person, I’ve never been scared of challenges,” Hartley said. “I just turned 52. I could have stayed in Zurich for many years. It would have been easy for me to say, ‘Fifty games, no travel, sleep at home every night,’ – but that’s not me.”
