Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Steve MacFarlane of the Calgary Sun,
Tim Thomas is a throwback.
He’s a heart-on-his sleeve, all-or-nothing, fight-for-everything he gets goaltender who has stolen the spotlight in the Stanley Cup final.
He’s everything Canadians want to see representing the game they call their own.
But the Boston Bruins’ Thomas is also (gasp!) an American.
Say it isn’t so … a hockey hero inspiring a team in a championship series, who with his bushy ginger playoff beard looks like a lumberjack fresh out of an old-growth redwood forest in B.C., and he calls Flint, Michigan, home?
It just doesn’t seem right.
