Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Bob Hunter of the Columbus Dispatch,
Excuse-making is out. Accountability is in. That means a talented, young player such as Nikolai Zherdev will work hard and get with the program or go to the bench. It means goaltender Pascal Leclaire will be in better shape than he has ever been or he will watch Fredrik Norrena play. It means playing time won’t have anything to do with where players were drafted or how much they have been hyped. It means it will be Hitch’s way or the highway, and the team’s general manager, Scott Howson, will back Hitchcock all the way.
While there’s no way to know how this will play out during the course of the season, it’s hard to see how this won’t change things for the better.
