Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Mike Boone of the Montreal Gazette,
The key issue was motivation. Did he want to put his no-longer-young body through the rigours of an 82-game season - plus what everyone in Montreal prays will be a deep playoff run? The mental aspect of the game is even more
gruelling. A perfectionist who’s notoriously hard on himself, he had to decide whether he was psychologically ready for the total commitment that an NHL season demands.
I am referring, of course, to the Living Legend of Sports Journalism. And I am delighted to report that after carefully weighing his options - writing about the sport he loves and understands better than anyone this side of Scotty Bowman vs. playing pinochle with retired garment industry executives at the Cavendish Mall - the LLSJ has saddled up for at least one more cattle drive.
