Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun,
• The very available Simon Gagne is a poor fit for the Maple Leafs for a number of reasons: 1) His salary is too high; 2) He’s not a centre; 3) The Flyers are looking for prospects or draft picks and the Leafs can’t afford to give away either; 4) He’s the wrong age at 30.
• We take you now to the front office meeting of the San Jose Sharks, where the determination is made about how to win the Stanley Cup. “I’ve got the answer,” one voice says. “Let’s sign Antero Nittymaki to be our goalie.” There is applause all around. This is, of course, fictional: Or is it? One of the deepest, strongest teams in hockey lost its No. 1 goalie and replaced him with Nittymaki. And this somehow makes them better? There is but one plausible explanation for this: John Ferguson Jr. works for the Sharks. The same man who traded Tuukka Rask for Andrew Raycroft, believed in Justin Pogge and gave up multiple picks for Vesa Toskala. Must be Fergie. Otherwise, can someone please explain what GM Doug Wilson is thinking?
a few more hockey notes…
