when you played, what was the most frusterating thing that players did, or about the game?
JANNA, SCHUYLERVILLE, NY
Probably the most frustrating part of the game when I played, was the waiting that I (as a player) had to do between warm ups and the start of the game, waiting between periods and the waiting during television timeouts. Back when I was with the Rangers, the NHL rules were slightly different, so during the playoffs we had a day off between each playoff game. The waiting between each playoff game was also very frustrating. Basically, anytime that I had to wait to play hockey was frustrating because all I wanted to do was play the game.
Without question, Graves is one of the top-quality human beings who ever pulled on the NYR sweater. And he also gave us some pretty damn good hockey. Never the most gifted player on any team, but you always knew that Gravey would give 1000% every night, and he always had your back.
