PD Best active hockey player on planet?
JC: He’s injured: Sidney Crosby.
PD: As a hockey fan, are you worried about Crosby’s hockey future?
JC: I’m concerned that his career might end prematurely. He will play again, and he will be just as good as ever, but they’re not going to keep letting him suffer concussions. It might be a situation like Eric Lindros.

PD: What promoted it, and when?
JC: I think I heard about someone doing it when I was in Peewee. I don’t even notice it now. I do it instinctively.
