Kukla's Korner Hockey

There is a lack of independent thinking around hockey because no one wants to be kicked out of the club. Is it OK if I think fighting should be banned? Will hockey fans think I'm & soft? I'm not sure if I should say I want bigger nets. What about this? Shorter shifts, better skating and safer equipment. Quicker, bigger and better prepared goaltending. Defensive coaching has stifled scoring throughout the game. And this? We have heard the term clutch and grab a lot the last few years, and frankly that is not the problem. While I detest the act of tugging at puck carriers with a stick, I don't see that much interference away from the play. I see incredibly mobile skaters with long reaches. I see goaltenders with 8 percent body fat. Gump Worsley had the same amount of body fat just on the back of his neck.
