What are you talking about, he gives a great interview and I have yet to see him turn down a post game interview for the media. He is funny, brash, outspoken, and has a terrific grasp on the English language.

I certainly buy into the idea that a black hockey player would energize the African-American community in Atlanta, but the most important factor for attendance in the NHL is winning. Now Atlanta appears to have a decent team for the first time in its history the attendance should increase once college football season is over.

Despite the accident Dany Heatley is still 10 times the marketing draw that GL is, and with his talent Kovalchuk is also a far more lucrative marketing tool than GL will ever be.
