Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Sean Gordon of the Globe and Mail,
Today comes word that Guy Lafleur, the Démon Blond of blessed memory, is convinced NHL hockey could soon be reborn in Quebec City.
This one’s a bit like picking a scab for the author of these here lines. It’s taken years of therapy, but I now recognize that what I experienced in the 1980s, watching my childhood hero suit up for the Nords after retiring from the Habs in a huff - screw you Jacques Lemaire! - was cognitive dissonance.
But that’s all melted into the mists of time, the Flower is still the Flower, and says exactly what he thinks at all times and under all circumstances (well maybe not all circumstances, as in the sad episode of R. v Lafleur).
Lafleur has told the Journal de Quebec that he’s certain the league will soon come back to Quebec City, provided plans go ahead for a new arena.
