There is a lot of truth in this post ^, but I think having a friendly open environment in the locker room is both a plus and healthy. They can, and probably do view each other as faceless entities on the ice, but afterwards or on the bench there is dialogue. And people who like eachother will always work better together.

I agree there shouldn't be a "Country Club" atmosphere, and this is a profession to be taken very seriously. But at the same time, I would hope that the locker room wasn't so tight up that, for example, Jordan Staal couldn't cream pie Semin in the face with shaving cream during an interview after a 4 goal game or some such.
