Word Association: Kings players on a six-pack of Blues

word association - STL Blues MayorsManor
We turned Dustin Penner and Drew Doughty loose again yesterday, capturing some thoughts about the Nashville Predators. Now, as part of our coverage in advance of tonight’s game, they’re back – along with Jim Fox and Jake Muzzin – to play some Word Association using the names of six St. Louis Blues players.

As usual, this was all done one-on-one, so nobody heard what the other guys said.  It’s more interesting that way when you compare their answers…

– On David Backes:

Drew Doughty – Hits hard
Jim Fox – Grit, intensity and intelligence
Jake Muzzin – Big
Dustin Penner – Hates Corey Perry

– On Jaroslav Halak:

Doughty – He’s good when he can see he puck
Fox – A lot to prove
Muzzin – Goalie
Penner – Has to be weird, he’s a goalie

– On Andy McDonald:

Doughty – Fast
Fox – Intimidating speed
Muzzin – Fast
Penner – Has a toaster for a helmet

– On Alex Pieterangelo:

Doughty – Skilled defenseman
Fox – Orchestrator and guardian of his goal
Muzzin – Skilled
Penner – Pretty good painter

– On Kevin Shattenkirk:

Doughty – Good on the power play
Fox – Fun to watch
Muzzin – Also skilled
Penner – Plays hockey

– On Chris Stewart:

Doughty – He can fight, and he’s a good player
Fox – Power forward, needs to find scoring touch
Muzzin – Strong
Penner – Good guy
