The Dodo Bird

from the Dallas Stars,
Hey Dallas Stars fans, it's Brett Hull here. Here's my next installment of Brett's Bites -- my weekly take on the Stars, and anything hockey. This week I begin by talking about the philosophy on the power play and also answer questions from fans on Jeff Halpern, autograph hounds and my heir-apparent on the "one-timer". Q. People continue to say that the role of the "enforcer" is a dying breed in the NHL, but you played with Kelly Chase, Tony Twist and Dave Manson. Weren't these guys a huge help in your career? A. They were a huge help in my career, but that role is a dying breed. Dave Manson could play the power play and he had a great shot so guys like him will always be there. Tough guys that can play. It's the guys that are slow of foot and don't have the skill to play. They won't be around for very much longer. They will be like the dodo bird which became extinct.
