Kukla's Korner Hockey

The Nashville Predators' Paul Kariya has always been a thoughtful sort - not a loud-mouth in the Jeremy Roenick or Brett Hull fashion, but someone who ponders the state of the National Hockey League and is happy enough to weigh in when he sees something amiss. In the aftermath of a destructive 310-day lockout that cost the NHL credibility, fan support and billions of dollars in lost revenue, Kariya asked a simple question: What if the lockout actually turns out to be a good thing? "You never want to see something like the lockout happen," began Kariya, "and you hope it never happens again, but looking ahead to five years from now, will the changes that came this summer make the league flourish? If so, then five years from now, we could look back and say, 'well, that (lockout) was the best thing that ever happened to the game of hockey.'"
