Kukla's Korner Hockey

The Low-Lights

from Jamie Fitzpatrick of About.com, I

Is Eddie Shore the worst boss in hockey history?

That’s debatable. But consider this piece of evidence.

As coach and owner of the the Springfield Indians, a minor-league team, he once called a meeting of players’ wives, asking them to withhold sex until the men played better.

You won’t find that tactic recommended at many coaching clinics these days.

But Shore isn’t such a bad guy compared to other members of the hockey hall of horrors.

It’s a select group that includes our picks for Most Repugnant Crook, Worst Owner, Worst Boss, Creepiest Hockey Dad, and more.

Collectively, they represent the game at its lowest.
