It's great to read anything written by PJ Stock. He was the best thing to happen to the Bruins since Lyndon Byers. I'm going to try to find a Wolfpack game on the idiot box to hear his analysis. If this article were to fight the Matt Barnaby interview which do you think would win?

Great article. I'd like to see an interview with him (like Tim Hunter's and Matthew Barnaby's).

If it was anything like the fight they had when Barnaby was with the Rangers, I'd say PJ's article gets the win.

Thanks for the article PJ!

BTW guys, PJ writes a blog for Eklund's site (www.hockeybuzz.com). IMO it's the most amusing and wisest hockey blog I've read on that or other sites. There are many good hockey writers, but PJ is a refreshing change from canned "professional" journalism. He is real, and he has been there in the NHL front lines. Evidently, Stocker's pen is as mighty as his giant hockey heart!

You Rock!

I know I sent an email before... but just as an additive... you rock, babe! You pointed out Chelios as one of your idols... the guy is 44, captain of the olympic team... That's heart! Most professional atheletes are hanging it up in their late 30's or early 40's... Chris is still out there competing with the young bucks! (If you think that's easy, take up a foot-race with your local 18/19 year old jock).

Thank God for hockey!... The last sport left for middle-sized white guys...hahaha. Maybe my priorities are wrong (by YOUR standards)... but I've lost more sleep over hockey games than my last divorce..hahaha...

Keep your stick on the ice!

Chris

Thanks for the article PJ. Few know what sacrifice it takes to play professionally and the many that have made equal sacrifices only to fall short. You are among friends on this site. We admire that part of the game. No one would replace the toothless smile of Stanly Cup Champions of the past for the Gold Bracelet wearing free agents of today. We respect the talent of this game. But talent without heart is worthless. As a fan we want to see it night in and night out for two points, no nights off.

That's why we Cheer for players like you. Thank you for making hockey watchable.
