Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,
I covered part of that Anaheim-Detroit series and came away wondering if Getzlaf wasn’t indeed the best center in the Western Conference, a tall statement considering his company (Pavel Datsyuk, Joe Thornton, Henrik Sedin and Jonathan Toews, among others).
His 91 points tied him for sixth in NHL scoring and Getzlaf wants to remain a member of that elite club.
“I hope so, that’s anybody’s goal,” Getzlaf said. “Once you’ve been there, you definitely want to be back. I think the team and the players I play with enables me to do that. That’s about accepting your role, as well. If I’m not up there, then I don’t think I’m doing my job properly. That’s definitely one thing I have to do every year and be consistent with it.”
