Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Jim Kelley of Sportsnet,
I owe Boston Bruins forward Mark Recchi.
I owe him for the veritable lifetime of memories he’s given over a career that, in my mind and the minds of many, is a Hall of Fame career.
I owe him for proving once again that experience matters and if you don’t believe that, go back and review his performance in the first round of the playoffs vs. the Buffalo Sabres. He proved, as many have before him, that it’s not just about how fast you skate (or as in his case now how fast you no longer skate) or how hard you hit or even how many goals you score. He proved that timely scoring, having a calm persona when everyone around you is jacked up to over-the-top extremes and that making just the right play at just the right time also matter. He’s a living, breathing case for anyone who wants to get rid of the old in favour of the new (and usually cheaper) players.
