Kukla's Korner Hockey

Just a week into training camp and it already had become a question: "Are you feeling the love right now, Derian Hatcher?" as in love for Flyers coach Ken Hitchcock? It is easy to ask the injured defenseman such a question these days because he has yet to step onto the ice while rehabbing partially torn ligaments in his left knee. Hatcher's idleness has allowed for a comfortable distance between him and the tough taskmaster he came to know in Dallas. So when he was asked if he was or was not feeling the love, a big smile crossed the face of the 6-foot-5, 235-pound defenseman. "I'm lovin' him now [because I'm not in camp]," Hatcher said, laughing. "Are you supposed to love a coach? I don't know. I heard guys never loved Scotty Bowman."
