“I have a huge amount of respect for all levels of players in the NHL. You understand how good you have to be to be a great player in the league and make it to that point. I also respect guys that just get a couple cups of coffee.
“You have to really grind it out. There’s a lot of anxiety that goes into every year. In training camp, you’re trying to make a team. There’s guys trying to take your spot. You’re trying to take somebody else’s spot.
“It’s the ultimate competition. You’re grinding it out. Best man wins. It’s a grind.”
-former NHL player Ryan Shannon who recently signed a three-year contract with the Zurich Lions. More hockey talk from Fluto Shinzawa of the Boston Globe.
