from Dmitry Chesnokov of PuckDaddy,
But what exactly is the secret that the Red Wings are amongst the favorites to win the Cup every year?
Well, if I tell you all the secrets, then it won’t be Detroit anymore. Someone else will pick them up and use them. There are secrets and they have to stay within the team.
The main reasons are the management and the atmosphere inside the team. And you also have to look at the work ethic. You can see that we have a lot of older players, but their work ethic is just perfect. You should see the way everyone works in practices, the way everyone is taking care of themselves, the shape everyone is in. Even in the past look at guys like Chris Chelios, Igor Larionov, Nicklas Lidstrom - they are living examples, the role models of what a player should be like. And you want to learn from them.
Do you think Ryan Kesler(notes) will win the Selke Trophy this year? Isn’t it your trophy?
It’s not my trophy. It’s Selke’s trophy.
I think there are quite a few players who can win it. Every player has a chance to win it. Kesler is having a great season and I wish him to continue going this way. But that doesn’t mean I have given up. I am going to keep trying to prove that I am worth it too.
