Kukla's Korner Hockey

From Cassie Campbell at CBC’s blog:
All leagues, including the NHL, should be looking at how they can improve not only their medical tests, but also the way they conduct fitness testing and their training throughout the season.
During the NHL’s general managers meetings this week, team representatives will be looking at the medical tests that need to take place. Obviously it is a no-brainer that enhanced medical testing at all levels of elite hockey must occur to help prevent such incidences as the tragic passing of young Russian hockey star Alexei Cherepanov. However, the physical fitness testing for hockey players needs to be minimized as much as possible and in-season training regimens need to be amended.
I applaud the Carolina Hurricanes for understanding that more is not necessarily better.
