Kukla's Korner Hockey

The Old Warriors

from Mark Whicker of the OC Register,

Detroit has 42-year-old goaltender Dominik Hasek. Detroit has 45-year-old defenseman Chris Chelios.
Hasek is 20 years older than Ryan Getzlaf, who marks his 22nd birthday today.
Chelios came into the NHL when there were just 21 teams. Heck, his first fight was with Joe Louis.
This is why the Western Conference finals will be such a different series from the first two.
Not because the Ducks won’t beat Detroit, because they should.
