On Brown and Bowman

January 13, 2006

Two great articles posted on Kukla’s this morning regarding former Detroit coaching legends.  First, Larry Brown’s respect for the hockey community.

“I was involved in a championship and obviously that was an incredible, special feeling for me. But I just remember reading and hearing what hockey players think about the Stanley Cup, the fact that they can take it home, show their friends and what it obviously has meant. I’m not so sure all our guys until later on in their career, they realize what it means to be part of a championship team.”

And another one on Ken Hitchcock and how he recalls coaching against Scotty Bowman.

“The part I liked most was, Scotty got up for good teams. He got animated. You could see him behind the bench, looking very stoic at times, but against us he was very animated. He was really into it. You knew your team had to be at its best.’’
