Boucher on NHL live

A few quotes.

"It's a matter of making sure that you are ready to play every night"

"You control what your effort level is going to be"

"The bottom line is you prepare the night before to get ready to play, you get your proper rest and come ready to play" "For me it's not an issue and I hope it's not an issue for my team mates."



-Z

No offense to Boucher (or any other Flyer), but I'm tired of hearing and reading the same tired old quotes.

Win some freakin' hockey games already. Hell, I'd settle for a streak of 5 games or so where we aren't completely embarrassed.

Yes, get some rest, control your energy level, and stop lookin' pathetic on game day. Good idea.

True, but "-Z" has been bashing everyone last last 2 days so until I see the interview myself and see the way he said those thing, what he said leading up to it and what the questions asked were, Im taking it with a grain of salt.

The question could have been something like "What do you do to try to get out of a slump and get yourself on a winning streak?" And his answer may have been "It's a matter of making sure that you are ready to play every night" which to me doesnt sound like he is calling anyone out. Every interview with a hockey player is pretty much the same, the talk about giving a lot of effort and being prepared, its really nothing new.

I don't bother to pay close attention to interviews anymore. They're answers are nothing short but cliché.

exactly, how many times have we heard
"we need to be better"
"we need to be ready to play"
ect, ect ect.
shut up. stop talking about how you need to be better and just go out and play. Just go out and give an honest, hard working effort. If you arent good enough fine. It sucks but we can deal with it. If you are going to halfass it and give the fans who paid their hard earned money to see you play the effort we have seen of late it is unacceptable.
I feel bad for the STH for the Flyers and anyone who gets to go to the games with regularity. If I lived in the area and went to more games I would be even more ticked off then I am now.

I'm with ya. Most hockey player's personalities in front of the camera are SOOOOOO incredibly dull. Especially Carter and Richards, good lord. People give Crosby a hard time about being outgoing enough for the media, these 2 are

The only people who occasionally have something real to say are Pronger and Lappy.

I have to say JVR is the worst interview. He literally says the same thing no matter who interviews him.

Reporter: "So JVR, I banged your mom, what are you going to do about it you little punk?"

JVR: "I just try to go out there and contribute, we have so many talented players here that make it easy for me, I just want to help the team win.

Reporter: You have a 90's haircut, whats the deal, do you still get any?

JVR: "I just try to go out there and contribute, we have so many talented players here that make it easy for me, I just want to help the team win.

Reporter: um, ok, good luck in the 2nd period.

JVR: "I just try to go out there and contribute, we have so many talented players here that make it easy for me, I just want to help the team win.

the best is when he shakes his head left and right and says " AH " after every other word

yep, sounds like a season vet doing an interview.
I am sure Richards,Carter ect interviews in their rookie year didnt sound bland or boring.

Yeah...20 y/o rookies generally suck at interviews assuming they're smart enough to realize that they don't want to put their foot in their mouth.

On a related note, pretty sure I walked past JVR in the Cherry Hill Mall today (the mole is a giveaway). Shockingly lean guy given that he's playing in the NHL. Has a lot of room to fill out.

Agreed.

I met him at a game once, man he's tall. But had plenty of room to fill out.

If he can fill out that frame with some strong muscle... Jeez. Rick Nash comes to mind.

Guy is a beast on the puck, and with it.

Lets hope JVR can get to Nash's level.

Assuming it was him that I walked by...there is no way he doesn't have 20-30 lbs of good weight to add on both naturally and through some work at it (not shocking given his age). I mean, I didn't think much of him til I glanced at his face as we walked by and thought I recognized him and then figured it out...completely nondescript, really tall dude (in a public setting).

I've been impressed with him, but assuming he puts the effort in...my God he's going to be something.

Going to school in Ohio, I've seen A LOT of Jackets hockey (my roommate being a huge fan) and Rick Nash is something else. He is a game-changer. If JVR can get onto his level, he could be the exact piece our team needs to really excel.

Miami. Some damn good hockey to watch out here. Look out for our guys in the NHL, Ryan Jones on the Preds, and of course, Dan Boyle on the Sharks.

So many solid players.

Both Miami and OSU had some good hockey players come out of them.

How do you like Ohio?

I wasn't born there, thank God. I can't stand it there, neither can my parents.
