Authentic jersey

Few former NHLers have embarked on as unconventional a post-career path as former Calgary Flames great Theoren Fleury,<strong>Authentic Jordan Eberle jersey</strong>, the two-time 100-point scorer who’s now plying his trade as a country music crooner.

‘Unconventional’ describes much of Fleury’s tumultuous tenure in the NHL,084 career tilts.,<strong>adidas Connor McDavid jersey</strong>, as the Oxbow, Sask. native was forced to battle through plenty on his way to cementing himself in the Flames history books. But that fiery personality and unyielding determination earned Fleury a Stanley Cup and a slew of impressive stat lines – the veteran topped 40 goals on four different occasions,<strong>Authentic Aaron Ekblad jersey</strong>, finishing his career with 1,<strong>Authentic Vincent Trocheck jersey</strong>,088 points in 1

 according to Fleury.,Unfortunately, that same mix of skill, unbridled emotion, and unpredictability is a rarity in today’s game

“The game is wayyy, wayyy too over-coached,” Fleury said to Sharp magazine’s Dave McCarthy on Wednesday. “It’s almost like coaches are playing Xbox with these guys. IPads on every bench now. It really takes individuality out of the game.”

The league still has a few characters who call back to that bygone era,<strong>adidas Jordan Eberle jersey</strong>,<strong>adidas Ryan Nugent-Hopkins jersey</strong>, according to Fleury,<strong>Authentic Ryan Nugent-Hopkins jersey</strong>,<strong>Authentic Connor McDavid jersey</strong>, but they’re certainly tougher to find.

 like Jeremy Roenick and Marty McSorley. They were different guys and said what was on their mind and wore their hearts on their sleeves.,“That’s why I love guys like P.K. Subban,<strong>adidas Aaron Ekblad jersey</strong>,<strong>adidas Vincent Trocheck jersey</strong>, who have their own personality and beat to their own drum,” Fleury said. “There’s definitely a lack of that now. If you look at my era, you had all these characters who played

“There were a lot of colourful people in the game. Now, when you listen to interviews with so many young guys, it’s all clichés.”

While our current era might be lacking in individuality, Fleury did say he’s impressed with the new crop of smaller-sized players thriving as the on-ice product continues to evolve.

“It’s really hard to compare eras but there’s no question that the game is built now for skill and speed, it was a man’s game and wasn’t conducive to small guys having success, whereas when I was playing,” Fleury said. “But it’s nice to see guys like (Johnny) Gaudreau and (Mitch) Marner and Marty St. Louis have the careers they’ve had.

“I was always told I was too small and I’d never make it and I’m sure it was no different for those guys. But when you have the kind of skill those guys have, that’s what really sets you apart.”
