The NHL is a better place when the player’s personalities come to the surface in times of high emotion.
Whether winning or losing, when emotion shows through, the fans will care more.
It’s the players who seem indifferent that the fans seem to not associate well with. When the team should be mad at its performance, the star player should be mad as well.
A player who keeps a steady perspective on the game and doesn’t get emotional at either the highs or the lows may seem to not care to an avid fan.
While these players are obviously some of the best in the NHL, their personalities leave a lot to be desired.
