Kukla's Korner Hockey

The success of the Boston Bruins is beginning to put the NHL into something of a predicament.
Having won the Stanley Cup last year and having gained confidence from that achievement, the big bad Bears certainly appear to be a strong contender in the east and in the opinion of Wings coach Mike Babcock at least, they are ‘the best team in hockey right now’ as he said a couple of weeks ago.
So what happens if the Bruins do indeed go on to win another Cup making it two in a row?
Given that scenario there is very little doubt that at a time when the league is looking to lessen the impact of violent collisions and lessen fighting at least, if not stop it outright, the biggest meanest team on the planet is winning and will no doubt be emulated.
