What I’ve learned so far… by Pittsburgh’s James Neal

Like the Penguins’ Steve Sullivan, who was profiled last hour, James Neal is one of the few Pittsburgh players who knows the Kings well. Having played for the Dallas Stars during his first three seasons in the NHL, he became well acquainted with Terry Murray’s hockey club.

Another change for Neal since the last time he’s been here is the addition of a Hulk Hogan-esque mustache. Not sure if that’s a Movember thing or not. Either way though, we chatted for a while after morning skate today. Here’s what he’s learned so far this season…

About Evgeni Malkin – “He loves his Russian music. He gets his headphones on and he’s jamming on the bus. His humor is great too. He’s happy to be at the rink everyday.”

About Steve Sullivan – “I learned that he’s old and short. He’s on his twitter all the time too, tweeting away.”

About Brooks Orpik – “He stirs the pot behind the scenes. He’s serious on the outside. But, he’s behind a few things.”

About Pascal Dupuis – “He’s a straight jokester. He’s doing something to someone at all times. You have to mention his eyebrows too – they’re huge.”

About Kris Letang – “He says a lot of funny things that don’t make sense.”

Sullivan checked in with his ‘What I’ve learned so far this season…’ article earlier today, you can read that by clicking here….and other articles in the series are linked below as well.
