Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,
Code this, code that. Nobody is quite sure exactly what it is in the NHL.
But here was the code as described by Marty McSorley, when he came to the Rangers from the Kings in 1996 after having been Wayne Gretzky’s teammate for 11 seasons in Edmonton and Los Angeles:
“Everybody who is on the ice with Gretz has to be willing to take a game misconduct penalty at any time.”
So here is Code Blueshirt: Everybody who is on the ice with Rick Nash from this moment forward has to be willing to take a game misconduct at all times....
When No. 61 does return to the ice, his teammates must play with the collective mentality that a blow delivered against Nash is tantamount to a strike against the Rangers’ franchise itself, and will be dealt with immediately.
