Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette, .
..But the biggest free-agent bust is Sheldon Souray, whose season appears to be over because of a recurring shoulder injury.
Souray is a magnificent physical specimen, but he has also proved brittle in a career that has been marked by injuries.
He missed the entire 2002-03 NHL season with a wrist injury and has played more than 70 games only twice in his nine-season NHL career.
That should have set off a warning bell for Edmonton general manager Kevin Lowe, but he was blinded by the fact Souray played 81 games last season for the Canadiens and had a career-high 26 goals and 68 points. He set an NHL record for defenceman when he scored 19 of those goals on the best power play in the league.
