from Lance Hornby of the Toronto Sun,
“Yeah, things have changed,” Maple Leafs defenceman Wade Belak said. “I came into the league hearing tales of guys who got hammered all the time after a game, some because they were too scared to fly (during the expansion years, when trains became planes).
“Myself, I listened to the great drinking stories of people my dad’s age. I’ve been on teams where there’s a big keg in the room.
“I think everyone still enjoys a nice, cold beer after a game, but now you have to weigh that against the risk to your career, a DUI charge and the chance you’ll really hurt someone.”
