“My Gums Hurt”

Alex Ovetjkin finds a unique interview with Donald Brashear,

DUBINA : Is it true that Joey Kocur had a punch of horrendous blow force? Have you ever fought him?
A. Yes, once I had a scrap with Joey. I tried to stand for him, but he was punching and punching me. Kocur was hitting me in the helmet like a power hammer and in the end the helmet split! I remember the next day I had a terrible pain, my gums on the left side of my head were hurting even though he was hitting me on the right side of my face. I couldn’t chew anything. I wonder what it would be if I did not have a helmet? Too scary.

AO Stands Out

from Jody Vance at Slam,

Prior to being swarmed by the media throng Tuesday, my Leafs TV gig afforded me an exclusive one-on-one with Alex Ovechkin.
This was certainly an interview I won’t soon forget.
Ovechkin is a presence even in an empty NHL visitors’ dressing room: Young, yet with eyes filled with the wisdom that comes from having shouldered so much pressure in his 21 years.
We go right to the flashy yellow laces and tell-tale tinted visor on his No. 8 helmet resting on the shelf above. Fashion statements, he says, “Laces to not be like others—same with visor—I do not want to be same as everyone. To stand out.”

“We have to sign good players and I hope we do,” he said yesterday. “I want to play on a good team.
“Don’t get me wrong. We have good guys in this dressing room and we have a lot of fun. But the team has to get better.”

Leonsis Remains Patient

from Tarik El-Bashir of the Washington Post,

“We couldn’t overcome our injuries [and] lack of depth,” Leonsis said in an e-mail interview. “And we left way too many points on the table with our lack of success in the shootouts. But I am not disappointed with our rebuild. Personally—while very competitive in nature—I knew what I signed up for. I’m patient and plan to see it through its full course.”...
“Payroll will be increased,” Leonsis said, “as will financial losses. We will fill holes, and add depth and skill, some additional veteran leadership….”
