This is worth a read if only for Penner’s replies :D

Now, as part of our preview of the re-match we played Word Association with six Los Angeles players, asking them to react to the names of four Chicago players. Like usual, these were all done one-on-one, so no player heard what the other guy said – which is interesting when you compare their answers…
Jonathan Quick – Good mitts
Rob Scuderi - Crafty
Mike Richards – Skilled
Drew Doughty – Silky smooth with the puck, you have to be aware of him out on the ice.
Jeff Carter – Skill one-on-one
Dustin Penner – Mullet
Quick – Good shot
Scuderi – Strong
Richards – Hard working
Doughty – Works hard, he’s a good leader and he’s going to battle down low for a spot on the ice.
Carter – Power
Penner – Serious
Quick – Solid D-man
Scuderi – Wiley
Richards – Smart
Doughty – Solid defenseman, good shot from the back end, good guy off the ice
Carter – Strong, solid
Penner – A sea brook
Quick – Solid goalie
Scuderi - Experienced
Richards - Big
Doughty – Different kind of goalie. Sometimes he’ll play great against us, sometimes he won’t. I think we’ve just got to get a lot of shots on him and he’ll let a few by.
Carter – Big, blocker, covers a lot of net
Penner – Marc
Sidney Crosby trips Matt Cooke’s son.
Jonny skates over to Sid and frowns. “I thought kids signed up for our hockey camp.”
Sid shrugs. “Yeah, I thought so.”
“Huh,” says Jonny, looking around at the empty ice. He sees a tiny helmet poke over the top of the boards, and it occurs to him to skate over and check the benches.
Sure enough, there are rows of tiny, frightened children huddled low. They look half-ecstatic and half-terrified to see him.
“Hey guys,” Jonny says, frowning. “I’m Jonathan Toews. What are you doing?”
“Are you gonna check us?” one kid blurts.
“I don’t want Sid to trip me!” wails another, bursting into tears.
Jonny glances over his shoulder at Sid and thinks maybe this was a bad idea.
We need you guys to come up with some wild and wacky goal celebrations. When you score a goal, you’re going to lift up your jersey and have a cool message written on your t-shirt.
Nick Leddy is actually so good looking.
You spelled Ben Smith wrong
