Personality Removed From The Game

from Eric Francis of the Calgary Sun,
"I don't miss hockey at all," said Fleury, whose last three teams have been the Horse Lake Thunder, Belfast Giants and a Calgary summer- league squad. "I haven't really thought about it a whole lot. I've just been having fun with this." This is a family business he started with new wife Jennifer and brother Travis after reading Entrepreneur magazine on his honeymoon this summer.... "I don't see the game as being fun -- you don't have to get your nose dirty any more," said Fleury. "You can't be a (jerk) on the ice because there are two officials and 12 guys in Toronto watching every move you make. For a guy like me, I needed that aspect of my game to be effective. The craziness, the intimidation, the unpredictability -- there's no more of that in the game. They've taken personality right out."
