My favorite hockey moment was watching the Canadian Olympic team win gold at the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City. It inspired me to pursue my dream of one day representing my country and winning a gold medal. Transcript: "My favorite hockey moment as a spectator, would have to be the 2002 Winter Olympic Games in Salt Lake City, when the Canadian Olympic team won gold and beat the states. It was a special moment for me, because that's really when the dream and the aspiration started, of wanting to represent my country and make the national team. And one day make it to Olympics, and win a gold medal for my country. So it really was an inspiring moment for me to be able to watch that, and just seeing the raw emotion of all the girls and women's faces when they got that gold medal around their neck. It was very inspiring for me, and that's when the dream started. So it was a special moment for me, and something I will never forget."
I would allow goalies to play the puck below the goal line, and reintroduce clutching and grabbing rules to give defensemen more time and space when going back for pucks. Transcript: "What rule change would I make in the NHL today? Just to jump on Andy's answer about trapezoids and the goaltenders play on pucks, I think that's one that needs to be changed. I would allow the goalies to play the puck below the goal line. Just enhances the speed of the game. Breaking out the pucks is such a big thing at the NHL. Allow the goalies to move the puck as they wish. The other one I would talk about would be just the rule change on creating more time and space for defensemen going back for the puck. So clutching and grabbing, holding. I would reintroduce that to the game. Maybe just to give the defenseman a few more seconds to go back for a puck and make a play so they're not under so much heavy pressure. So those would be the two that come to mind for me, the trapezoid situation and creating a little bit more of a hold against opposition's coming back against the defensemen."
Common locker room pranks include putting shaving cream in folded towels, baby powder in hair dryers, Vaseline on a stick, and cutting someone's laces. Transcript: "All right, best locker room pranks. Well, I don't have enough time to do it in one set, but I'll give it a shot. Generally, it's it was a prank around some personal hygiene products, whether it was shaving cream in the in the folded towels. After you come out of the shower, it could have been baby powder in the hair dryer, back in the 80s. We use hair dryers and that was always a fun, one to see a snowman. Come out of the bathroom after using the hair dryer. That was fun little vaseline in the on the end of a stick when he had to prank, somebody was pretty good and and I guess away from the personal hygiene products that the one that I got a kick out of his, somebody was coming into the locker and a little bit late and rushed to get on the ice. It was inevitable that his skates laces would be cut about halfway up, and he couldn't tie his skates without getting brand. New laces, Good Humor for a bunch of boys. Trying to act like men, N."

I believe that fighting is no longer necessary in hockey and that the game has improved immensely with the removal of clutching and grabbing, holding, and impeding. Fans can now enjoy watching players compete for loose pucks and space to try and score. Transcript: "I want to start by saying that I really like where the game is at right now and I've coached for a long time and I believe that the game has improved immensely over the years. When they took clutching and grabbing holding impeding, the progress of a player. Either the puck carrier, or the non Puck carrier taking away the center line to open up the game. I think is all taking hockey just to another level from a spectator point of view. But also from participants point of view is Is fighting necessary in the game, I don't believe so. I believe fighting is going away at all levels and for me as a coach and for our players, I love to see them compete in loose Puck battles or compete in front of the net for space and time to try and score. Those are the competitive things in the games that the fans can. Now enjoy when fighting disappears from the game."
