Well. okay, maybe that's not fair. Having met a number of Canes players over the years, though, a lot of them are actually fairly personable off the ice. But unfortunately, all too often they get a little shy around a camera or a microphone, and so just don't project a great deal of "personality." Well, I think we've got one now. Anthony Stewart, a 26-year-old right wing whom they signed as a free agent this offseason from the erstwhile Atlanta Thrashers, and prior to that he played a few years for Florida. But he's ours now, and I heard him on a radio interview earlier today, and wow! The guy can actually talk, has a sense of humor, and has thoughts on his mind that he's willing to express! What a breath of fresh air. And then I checked out the guy's Twitter feed, and he's fun and funny there, too! So, let's welcome him to town and embrace him, at least until he screws up on the ice. You can follow him on Twitter at @EhStew13.

Hockey players seem more reserved. Perhaps it's because there's less media spotlight (at least in the States) but aside from Avery I don't recall hearing much about anyone. No controversial comments or interviews. Met two Red Wings players at a signing as a kid and they had zero personality. Not mean or rude, just quiet.

As far as media interviews it may be about finding the right guy. Not everyone is comfortable in front of a microphone.

Avery is a tool. Him and Lapierre are two peas in a pod. The Panthers have some cool players, but they suck unfortunately.
