from Joe Brescia of Slap Shot,
Q. What players do you enjoy watching?
A. Plenty. Ovechkin, Parise, Gaborik, Crosby, Zetterberg, Datsyuk, Green, Del Zotto, Keith, Seabrook and Lidstrom. The forwards all compete at a high level and have the ability to play well in every zone. For every game, the other teams’ goal is to not allow these players to beat them. The defensemen all move the puck well, are great skaters, anticipate and support the play and play a lot of minutes.
Q. How do you think John Tortorella is doing as the Rangers’ coach?
A. I think Torts has been great. He was an assistant while I was there and actually was head coach for a few games. I liked his direct approach. His style of play is fun for most players. I loved playing his style, pressuring the puck and not allowing any space to the opposition. You have to be in great shape but it also eliminates standing flat-footed, trying to read and react. It’s more initiate and react.
