Kukla's Korner Hockey

The NHL says it is in favour of implementing a rule -- in conjunction with its close friends at the NHL Players' Association -- that would mandate eye protection in the league. The league has said that before and refused to implement it without agreement. The matter actually came up in the recent collective bargaining talks. The NHLPA didn't object to mandatory eye protection -- only a majority of its members did. So what did Maple Leafs rookie Carlo Colaiacovo do on Tuesday? He decided he no longer needed to play with a visor, which may explain why the Leafs chose to send him back to the Marlies yesterday. Never mind his playing ability, it may be his ability to think that they have to be concerned about. When asked about what affect the Sundin injury would have on him, Colaiacovo said: "Probably won't influence me."
