“The worry I’ve had — and it’s still there — is: Can I still play?  Am I going to be able to play at the top level?  That question still isn’t gone completely, so I have a lot of other things on my mind than worrying about [the roster].”

-Sami Salo of the Vancouver Canucks.  More from Salo by Ian MacIntyre of the Vancouver Sun.

Poor Sami Salo. With a quote like that, it seems quite probable that he’s always had a worry in the back of his mind that he’s going to get injured again, and that just breeds negativity. He’s a heart and soul player.

When I first read that quote, I was pretty sure it was Mike Modano.

Good article. Rare that a professional athlete will tell a journalist what they are actually thinking and not just regurgitate the ‘positivism’ mantra that you usually get.
