Kukla's Korner Hockey

No Comparison

from Rosie DiManno of the Toronto Star,

There’s balls and then there’s balls.

Chutzpa versus cojones.

Exhibit A: Jim Balsillie; Exhibit B: Nicklas Lidstrom.

Both have taken it in the groin – one off the ice, from the courts; the other on the ice, from a hockey stick. You are invited to take the measure of each man.

We’ll start with the player, Detroit’s inestimable captain, a ferocious warrior who, despite gallant effort, was unable to capture a second straight Stanley Cup triumph for the Motor City.

How gallant?
