Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Bernie Miklasz of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch:
When John Davidson took giant steps from the broadcast booth to the team president’s office, when he traded in a microphone for the most important desk in the Blues’ organization, it was natural to wonder if he’d make a successful transition.
We knew that Davidson could talk about a hockey team.
But could he actually run one with distinction?
Davidson had playing experience, yes. He knows the game. But the same things were said of Matt Millen, who went from All-Pro linebacker to network TV football analyst to president of the Detroit Lions. And in six seasons, the Lions are 24-72 under Millen. His leadership has provided little but a sequence of disasters.
