Balanced is probably what I am, although that's just a polite way to say that you don't do anything very well.
And for the team, I always tried to do the right thing.
I also feel I adapted. I was willing to try to fit into any role. The way I figured, it was always up to me to prove my worth, that I deserved to be here.
I don't take anything for granted.
I'm exhausted trying to stay healthy.
Very few cities in the NHL have the history or the following of the Detroit Red Wings.
I've been hit hard a few times, been hit really hard a few times, but I don't think I've ever left a memorable, lasting impression on anyone I've ever hit.
When you're on the ice, you have very little time, you see very little, and everything happens really quick.
The 70's hair with the long on the sides, just doesn't look good coming down the sides of the helmet.
When it gets to this point, it's just hard to pull the trigger.
Whether somebody is really competent - whether he has a good hockey mind, whether he's a good person to lead a hockey club - is something determined over a long period of time, not one tournament.
I hope people like me and appreciate me the way I am.
There used to be an old thing where every team had a heavy bag in their locker room for people to punch, but again, it was more about conditioning because if you hit a heavy bag for a minute, it feels like your arms are about to fall off.
Playoff hockey is the best way to market your team. It's the best way to grow your fan base and give hope to your players and for them to develop.
It's been a great honor for me to be a player for the Detroit Red Wings, to play for an Original Six franchise. I know I'm far from perfect, but I learned a lot.
