Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Cathal Kelly of the Toronto Star,
Despite hating each other, Cherry and Burke have had this much in common — there is only one gear in their engine, the one that goes forward.
For the first time, Burke has started backing up.
It’s unclear how two men of such similar outlook on the game came to dislike each other so much. Burke is the sort who needs to dominate every conversation he’s in. He needs his intelligence acknowledged.
Cherry is the sort who just talks until everyone else gives up. He doesn’t care if you’re agreeing, as long as you’re listening. Maybe that’s it.
Cherry picks his fights lightly, and has traditionally let go of them easily. Everyone is just a little bit below his notice, so he can’t be bothered to accrue a long enemies’ list.
Burke has somehow managed to work his way onto that short document.
