Afternoon Line

“If you get the [stars] that are coachable, they’re the best ones to have, obviously. I think the teams that win have the best ones. And those guys, believe it or not, are the most humble guys. If you look at a guy like Nick Lidstrom, I think he might be the perfect (human too) player. Played 22 years, never got hurt, played 30 minutes a game, played the game smart. In his own way, he was a great leader for that club even though he wasn’t a vocal guy. ... A lot of leadership in star players is being a regular guy.”

-Washington Capitals GM George McPhee speaking to 500 USA Hockey Coaches.  Much more from McPhee from Ted Starkey of SBNation Washington.
