Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,
Tomas Kaberle is in the same exact position as his older brother, Frantisek, was five years ago: playing for the Stanley Cup and thinking this might be his one-and-only chance to win an NHL championship. Frantisek’s Carolina Hurricanes were the favourites and he was one of the defence-by-committee crew that ultimately played seven gruelling cross-continent games against the Edmonton Oilers before winning it all.
“When I saw him come back that summer after winning the Stanley Cup, he looked like a different person,” Kaberle remembered Tuesday. “It was a difficult couple of months for him and they had to work really hard.
“But the first thing he said was, ‘It was worth it.’ I was watching back home on TV. At the end of the day, he said, ‘It was an unbelievable feeling and I’ll probably never be in it again, so I was enjoying it.’”
