Kukla's Korner Hockey

From James Duthie at The Good, The Bad and The Duthie:
Exactly one year ago, Jeremy Roenick strolled into our studio for the start of the second round of the 2007 Stanley Cup Playoffs.
Not surprisingly, it was a Rock Star entrance. He was late (plane’s fault), arriving just as our first intermission was beginning. He had not rehearsed, not been given a single tip on which camera to look at, how long to talk for, or how to deal with a producer yapping in his ear.
Of course, none of that mattered. The only thing Roenick does better than play hockey is…talk. He was more comfortable in the first 30 seconds on television than some are after 10 years in the business. He said smart things, dumb things, outrageous things. He waved his arms madly in the air like he was in the middle of a dance floor whenever we first came live to studio.
