Kukla's Korner Hockey

It's never easy watching legends perform with a dwindling reserve of skill and will, squeezing every last drop until nothing is left but fond memories. And you never want their final days to cross the line into pity, or worse, egotism. Steve Yzerman hasn't played much this season because of a temperamental groin, but when he has played it's as though he's off-limits to checks from opponents. Nobody comes near him. It's reminiscent of Wayne Gretzky's last season. Don't hit him. Don't hurt him. Don't deny him what many consider the right to end a great career on his own timetable under his own terms.
