On the ice, he’s a guy who can change a game pretty quick with the way he shoots the puck and his playmaking ability. He doesn’t need a lot of time and space to make plays. As far as off the ice, he brings an easy going attitude. He doesn’t take things too seriously. He’s pretty laid back. He brings a lot of laughs and that’s great.
whenever i talk about hall of famers i can’t stop thinking about how the players i watch today are going to be regarded in 20+ years. how will i tell my kids about jonathan quick? what will they think about tyler seguin? about brad marchand? what if im watching the draft with them and they tell me about an upcoming pick and it’s max pacioretty’s son? or brent burns’? im gonna tell them about watching auston matthews’ debut as a teenager or about watching sidney crosby win the Stanley cup and what if they don’t understand the significance behind that because it wasn’t their time like the way i brush it off sometimes when my dad talks about tomas sandstrom and my mom talks about rob blake. it’s so weird for me to think about new generations of hockey. i can’t imagine what it’s gonna be like when im older but im so excited for the game to keep growing.
