Kukla's Korner Hockey

from the Denver Post,
But those of us who consider trading away Drury to have been a monumental misjudgment the Avs have been attempting to recover from since should stop talking as if nothing good came of it. Stastny did. And the Avs, including Pierre Lacroix, who knew which year Stastny would be in the draft pool, deserve credit for that.
Stastny is going for sole possession of an NHL rookie record today, when he attempts to extend his point streak to 18 games and break a tie with Teemu Selanne. The Finnish Flash’s 17-game streak came at the end of his spectacular, 76-goal, 1992-93 rookie season at Winnipeg.
Stastny has been less flashy, but that’s almost part of the point. He is a subtle star, and his stunning on-ice poise and savvy have enabled him to arguably be more productive and impressive as an NHL rookie than he was at DU.
