Kukla's Korner Hockey

The New Canes Leader

from Scott Burnside of ESPN,

But hockey teams are surprisingly consistent in what nourishes them, what pushes them forward. Yes, good coaching, a sense of direction from management and good luck are all important. But all good teams need someone to lead them, to show them that adversity isn’t a wall, but a challenge.

In the Carolina Hurricanes’ dressing room Eric Staal has become that man.

“It’s unfair to say he’s the reason why we’re where we are,” Carolina coach Peter Laviolette told ESPN.com this week. “But if you have a hard-working team, there has to be somebody that you look to. This has been a chance to look into Eric Staal and see what he’s all about. I think everybody likes what they’ve seen.”
