What exactly were you expecting? There's not a lot of exciting things to say. I thought Torts' comments on Nash were interesting and I love what I hear about the way Nash is conducting himself.

He doesn't know hockey. At least he's smart enough to realize that he doesn't. I find his hockey interviews to be some of his better interviews to be honest. At least he isn't trying to one-up the guest by showing how smart he is.

He doesn't have to do either. Like him or not, the guy has dominated the ratings for decades.

He doesn't. I think Mike did a good job to get him talking about the adjustments he's made in camp and the adjustments he's made as a coach communicating with his players. Mike did a good job.
