Since the while CBA stuff has currently left me missing hockey and not feeling very optimistic, let's play a game :)
If you had an opportunity to sit down and have a drink or have dinner with one CURRENT and you couldn't talk hockey, who would you choose and why?
For me I think I would pick to sit down with Tootoo and have a candid conversation about addiction and if he felt that the league "looked away" if they knew someone was struggling. I also would want to talk to an " enforcer" about losing Boogard, Rypian, Belak and the early departures of some of hockey's biggest personalities and if he worried he would slip into that headspace.
Thoughts?

Datsyuk.

I speak Russian, so it would be possible.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Bert without a doubt... seems like he's got a good sense of humor, we have similar music tastes, and I'd ask him off the record what really went down with Crawford and the bounty situation over Moore...

All I have to say about Holland and our off-season:

Here in this one as well

and finally

Holland is a damn good GM. period.

I'd enjoy speaking with Datsyuk about his faith and his experience growing up deep in the Soviet Union. I think he grew up where the Tsar and his family were killed. Plus, he seems to be a legit Christ-follower.

Bert. Being a BC guy when I was a kid he was like a superhero for a few yrs when I was in highschool ... fact that he got traded to my favorite team just made it that much cooler. Bert looks like one of the quiet insightful guys who's probably down to earth and cool as hell - plus I throw down the beers like nobodys business and Bert can probably handle his pops pretty effectively as well.

Actually Datsyuk and Bert would round out my top 3. They have lived much more than what you see in 3 periods of hockey. Cleary and Eaves would also be interesting because they were first round picks, highly touted and then had to reinvent themselves to remain in the game. Too many choices!

Ovechkin. We would just mumble at each other and laugh about it and then probably call Dats to see if he wants to come join it.

Definitely Homer because it wouldn't matter what we were talking about I'm sure I'd be laughing my butt off even if I couldn't understand most of what he was talking about :lol:

Not really on the roster but part of the broadcast team so I'm counting it... Would love to sit down for a couple of ginger ales with Mickey Redmond one day.

Datsyuk
Think for yourself. Question authority. Throughout human history as our species has faced the frightening, terrorizing fact that we do not know who we are or where we are going in this ocean of chance, it has been the authorities, the political, the religious, the educational authorities who attempted to comfort us by giving us order, rules, regulations, informing, forming in our minds their view of reality. To think for yourself you must question authority and learn how to put yourself in a state of vulnerable, open mindedness, chaotic, confused vulnerability to inform yourself.

I'd have Bert slam my head into the ping pong table a few times and call it a day.

I can go into work the next day gloating that I got my ass beat by Bert.

Homer for the insight into the recent history of the team. I'd love to hear his take on everything that happened since he joined the team. Plus he'd be funny to talk to.

Oh definitely Pasha...we have a lot of things in common outside of hockey. I would love to spend time with him talking about the pain of losing parents, being the second child (we seem to go through more hell), and life in general.

I misread the first post on mine above. If it was our roster, i'd take Z cause he's my favorite player and there's always a million questions that you can ask your favorite player. He's a pretty laid back guy it seems too.
