    More than any other sport, NHL players seem to lack emotion when being interviewed. Their answers are monotone and they look like robots. Maybe the sport requires men with nerves of steel who aren't rattled under any circumstances, or maybe it's because they do their talking with their fists when they get frustrated or their emotions are heated. They are a different animal than other athletes. Me - I yell, punch the couch, clap, jump up and down. My cat runs for cover. I know, I know. The men in the white suits are going to come for me one day.......

    The interviewers don't ask "Why didn't you play your best?" out of fear.

    Leslie Visser once asked Bobby Knight how they won a bball game (Indiana coach at the time), and he replied "We scored more points". God, it was funny.

    Why is it that when a team loses and the players are asked "What happened on the ice tonight? Their reply is usually "We didn't play our best for the whole game." That's usually obivious. My question is why? Why don't they give their best the whole 60 minutes? And why don't the interviewers ask the same question?
