I was going to ask does anyone really consider any of these guys "kids?" They are all 25 and 26 years old.

It's a general term used to describe players on a lower affiliate.

In terms of NHL maturity and/or experience they're still considered "kids".

I thought it was because we're in Florida which means we're all senior citizens.

I've just never been used to being able to root for someone younger than me...

It's a weird feeling growing up and idolizing all of these men that played a game that were your dad's age, and then realizing that they're the same age or younger than you are now....

Great piece on Nacho Libre: http://www.tampabay.com/sports/hocke...htning/1212291

Apparently, not too long ago he was planning on becoming a fireman as his hockey career "was going nowhere".

Quote:
"What sets him apart from some of the other big, physical guys that you might think are fighters is he plays very smart — very, very smart," Lightning coach Guy Boucher said. "He's never caught out of position. He's very safe, very reliable. He's just not a guy you have at the end of the bench that you put him out there when you need a hit or a fight or whatever. He can play the game."
Quote:
"The guys are like, 'You have a permanent smile on your face,' " Labrie said. "I'm like, 'Why would I not smile right now? I still can't believe it.' "

Labrie!

My teams keep all their toughness in the AHL, nonesense! I love having Labrie to add to what Downie has.
