Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Damien Cox of The Spin,
There are eight teams still competing for the Stanley Cup, and precisely none of them operate on the model now being proposed by the new-look Colorado Avalanche.
Then again, it's hard to explain precisely what the Colorado model is, or how it will work.
What we do know is that of the remaining eight, none are run by Hall of Fame centremen with no previous experience or coached by Vezina Trophy winning goalies straight out of junior hockey with expanded powers beyond just minding the bench.
And the eight other NHL clubs that qualified for post-season play before being eliminated in the first round? Nope, they aren't using the buddy system the Avs are going with, the we-won-championships-together-so-we-must-know-how-to-run-a-team approach.
