Obviously Hall and Eberle are closer, but they played World juniors together. But I think Yak is buds with them
I also really hope Yak doesnt lose that spark. Cherry is doing his best to zap the fun from NHL players, but ill take Yaks, Ovies and Subbans attitude and energy over a boring NHLer anyday of the week
A buddy of mine is a former WHL scout and his kids played against RNH and with Schultz. Take it for what it is, but I hear the opposite is true, that the Hall, Eberle, RNH and Schultz are not "buds" with Yak. Based on how they seemed to play on ice or look on the bench, I think there is some validity to it.
