I also find laughable that the number of official under-25 cancers that we ship out for a pittance has shot up these past few years... And the fans fall for it hook, line and sinker.
A hockey team's not a chess club. You play on a team where you've got a bunch of different personalities. Many are not shrinking violets. It's a failure of coaching and leadership if they can't be brought together.
I think people would be shocked at the number of jerks and flawed human beings in the Hall of Fame. Doug Harvey and Lafleur are examples but they're far from the worst...
We need to stop seing the average pro player as a role model. Jean Beliveau's are few and far between. You can't ice a winning team if that's only what your looking for.
The image of the 21 year old with his pockets lined with cash and stardom that humbly takes his place in the dressing room pecking order, that's always quiet, respectful to the coaches and other players, that goes to bed early and never has more than 2 drinks, has to be broken... If ever Subban, Eller, Desharnais, Weber, Pouliot are labeled the next cancer, scepticism is in order.
