Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Damian Cristodero of the St. Petersburg Times,
There are days, Zenon Konopka admitted — like the one in Detroit when his neck and wrist were packed in ice and he could not speak clearly because of the stitches in his mouth — that he wonders what his body will feel like at age 50.
It is bad enough, he said, at 28.
“It’s a concern,” Konopka said. “But life’s too short. Everything in your life is in the now.”
And for now, his body is his most reliable tool and one of the Lightning’s most important weapons.
Tampa Bay does not have a heavyweight enforcer. Instead, it relies on Konopka, a middleweight, really, but who is willing to take on anyone.
