from the Edmonton Journal,
Neither Georges Laraque nor Jarome Iginla can understand what Michael Vick, who had the world by the tail, was thinking when he got involved in the gruesome activity of dogfighting.
Laraque figures Vick should have shed the hangers-on with whom he grew up.
“That guy had everything and he threw it away,” said Laraque, a Pittsburgh Penguins winger and one of the NHL’s best guys in the community.
“He had the look, he had the talent. To be associated with that kind of thing (dogfighting) is really surprising? Why?”
Also, Iginla on Keenan, from the Edmonton Journal,
“But Mike is one of the NHL’s winningest coaches. He’s, uh, what can I say… a hard-ass, but most coaches around the league are now.
“As a player I don’t mind that, as long as they’re fair and up front. But I also like the other side. Like I said before, when it’s going good for the team, you want that reward. You want to be able to enjoy it—it is the NHL. You want to have some fun.”
