ESPN Q&A with JR

http://sports.espn.go.com/nhl/column...vid&id=2288332

Vintage JR. Here are a couple of the good ones.

Q: With the way the team has played of late, should we view your Los Angeles Kings as a legitimate threat to get to the Stanley Cup?


A: I'm hoping our Kings team is like Calgary from the last Stanley Cup. We have a goalie that can take us there. We have a team that is close knit. We have all the intangibles, we have goal scoring, we have toughness, we have grit, so I really feel we can do it.


Q: So what's your role on this team?

A: I'm a big rah-rah guy. I'm a guy that leads by example. I keep it loose in the locker room. I keep it fun, I keep the guys together. On the ice, I work my *** off. When the young guys see a 35-year-old working as hard as I do, they have no choice but to follow suit. But really, I'm the jokester, I dance in the locker room, I'm happy to be there and make it fun to come to the rink every day.
