the topics were both on-ice and off-ice. nick was asked which stanley cup he was the most fond of, and he also talked about his family a bit. he was asked about the ******** injury from '08 as well. mike mostly talked about his decision to come to detroit and some stuff from his early playing days.

the reason i also thought the interviews were awesome is because they weren't cliche questions with cliche answers. it was a half hour show so they asked them quite a few questions. i'd recommend to anyone who didn't see it to look for it on you tube. someone will probably post it eventually.

Really great interviews. They were long interviews as they always are on After Hours, so it was way better than watching a post-game interview on FSN or something.

It was really cool for me to hear Modano interviewed. Never really heard anything from him before. He talked about the Dallas days and the decision to sign w/ Detroit. He said he talked to Bertuzzi a lot during the offseason about the team in Detroit and also to Chelios and Hull. He also said it took about a month before he started feeling comfortable because of how hard the Wings practice and train. He said the practices are really up-tempo and it reminded him of Ken Hitchcock.

Are you the one uploading those on YouTube? Just noticed that the 2nd part of the Lidstrom Interview went up by the same user (doozy104).

The first vid you linked to is in HD but only Part I. Part II is now up.

If you are, the Modano Interview is on its way right?? :clap: :clap: That was a completely awesome interview. Everyone must see it.

Yea, I had thought it was 09 too, and was kinda confused about it. But I agree with most of what they said... especially that it hurts just thinking about it.

Anyone else have the feeling from that interview we might have Lids for another 2 years? I'd love it if he COULD play until he was 55 at this level though.

I LOVE After Hours. Their interviews are great... in-depth, personal, a little playful, and not the typical fluff or scripted Q&A you'd see elsewhere. I think if the NHL was able to expose more fans to a regular show like this, they'd have success in marketing players on a more personal level, not just by hype and highlights. Hockey players are a different breed of athlete, and the NHL should take full advantage of that fact.

I got the feeling he would retire after this season

Rage, those really were some great interviews. Thank you for sharing, I would not have stumbled across them I don't think...

Edit: That was supposed to be a quote... but I am amazingly incompetent at the internet for a CS major sometimes :lol:

I love this in general about Canadian broadcasts. I watch the postgame on NHL Network USA or Versus and get the feeling of when I used to watch it on FOX or ABC, the same as their game broadcasts, which was it seems they're way too eager to show they actually know something about hockey, going on long-winded tangents and one-upmanship (reflected upon how much they fricken babble throughout the play by play) and not enjoying enough the awesome sport which is hockey the way these guys do. It's very much a different feel with CBC, hell, even Sportsnet or TSN.

Rage, thanks for the OP and editing the YT clips back in. I was not able to watch After Hours and it was great to see those interviews. It's a side of the game we don't get to see often enough. Really enjoyed it.

Back when I went to Walled Lake Central, Livonia Stevenson was in our league, so it's fun to hear them mention Livonia.

Thanks a bunch.


Maybe this answers some questions about Modano's "slower than fans wanted" start; he's gasping for lungs and legs trying to keep up with the team until he get's himself in Red Wing shape. Go Mike, Go!
