from the Daily Breeze,
“At times we skated too much,” Carlyle said of last spring’s playoff routine. “We changed our travel schedule. Now we’re staying over and traveling the next day.”
Teemu Selanne and a number of other veterans asked Carlyle to make the change, mindful of the need for more rest….
Selanne then complained with his tongue planted firmly in his cheek that Carlyle doesn’t listen to any of his suggestions. So when he has one, Selanne said he tells teammate Chris Pronger and Pronger asks Carlyle about it.
“He goes there and (Carlyle) says, ‘Why not?’ ” Selanne said. “You have to keep mother (Pronger) happy. If the father is unhappy you can still have a happy family. But if the mother is unhappy, forget it.”
