Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Stephen Whyno of the CP at TSN,
Tom Renney is a hockey man, not a businessman. He once ran a clothing store in Trail, B.C., along with his wife but since then his life has been immersed in coaching.
So when Hockey Canada was searching for a new president and CEO and Renney emerged as serious candidate, the 59-year-old didn't put on a masquerade.
"(Business is) not where his passion lies," Team Canada coach Mike Babcock said. "And it's not where his expertise lies. One thing about Tom: He knows what he is and he knows what he's not."
Renney above all else is a respected hockey man, and his decades of experience at the amateur, international and professional levels ultimately made him Hockey Canada's choice to replace Bob Nicholson.
