He just seems to know that the media are after a story, and, unless there's one there, he's absolutely unwilling to manufacture anything just to please reporters.

Hearing ten questions per scrum about whether or not Karlsson's absence is going to affect the team negatively would drive me bonkers, but it seems not to affect Paulrus in the least.

On the other hand, we also seem to have one of the most blatantly facepalm-worthy owners in the league, when it comes to public commenting. I'm eternally grateful to Melnyk for the funding and support he's given everyone, but there are some times I just wish he'd shut his yap.
He's great with the media from what I've seen. I've yet to see him lose his cool. He just keeps it professional at all times, and jokes around a bit too.
