Word Association: Calgary Flames players talk five LA Kings

word association - Flames on Kings
Last week we took a brief break from having LA players talk about the opposition using our popular Word Association format when we went over to the other locker room – asking the Dallas Stars for some thoughts on the Kings.

It was well received by the readers here, so we went that route again earlier today, asking the Calgary Flames to do some Word Association following their morning skate at Staples Center.

As always, we did the interviews one-on-one, so nobody heard what the other guys were saying – which makes things more interesting when you compare answers.  Take a look at what they had to say…

– On Dustin Brown:

Jay Bouwmeester – Good player
Mike Cammalleri – Teeth
Tim Jackman – Hard work
Charlie Simmer (former Kings forward, now Flames radio color man) – Leader
Lee Stempniak – Tenacious

– On Jeff Carter:

Bouwmeester – Scores goals
Cammalleri – Scoring
Jackman – Great shot
Simmer – Streaky
Stempniak – Good tan

– On Drew Doughty:

Bouwmeester – Good defenseman
Cammalleri – Skating
Jackman – Great skill
Simmer – Dependability
Stempniak – N/A

– On Anze Kopitar:

Bouwmeester – Good player
Cammalleri – Good
Jackman – Total player
Simmer – The best
Stempniak – Skilled

– On Jonathan Quick:

Bouwmeester – Very good goalie
Cammalleri – Quick
Jackman – Quick
Simmer – Quick
Stempniak – Quick
