Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Bruce Dowbiggin of the Globe and Mail,
This past week, former NHL star Theo Fleury opined on Twitter that the league-leading Vancouver Canucks were a likely first-round upset victim. Fleury isn’t a fan of Canucks goaltender Roberto Luongo. We heard similar comments from Fleury when he was a guest on a radio show we hosted recently.
Hey, everyone’s entitled to his opinion on Twitter – especially a player who starred at the top level of the NHL and won a Stanley Cup. But Fleury’s provocative comments brought out haters on Twitter with some of the most vile comments imaginable about a man who was sexually abused by his junior coach Graham James and who has battled substance addiction.
