In response to Not-A-Shot's comment:
He's not a kid. He's a man. He chose life as a professional hockey player. He chose life as a public figure. If he's going to be in the spotlight, he can't hide in the shadows when acting the fool.
Yes, get hammered with the boys. Don't do it in BU dorm rooms. And don't do it during the playoffs when your stats stink.
NAS, its in the public eye bc the team is justifying it. Its a joke. 21 is barely legal in your country. where were the team reps 3 yrs ago? Why didnt they step up when he was a kid with the so called adults on the team when he was dancing on the speakers.
If you were a responsible "man" at 21 im proud of you. Took me to about the age of 28 to smarten up. From my experience with work a 20-21 male is not a man. The size is there. The brain isnt.
the stories murray has told me about ray, cam oates huscroff and others are just great stories. If leaked to the media not so much.
Shupe, I agree with NAS here because I think when he says in the public eye, he means, not "In public" where random people i.e college kids can snap phots of you and put it on the internet where if he was surrounded by teammates or close friends who wouldnt do that to him. Teammates also wouldnt let him end up in compromised situations (frog pond??)...They would make sure he got home.
Many of us werent responsible at the age of 21. heck many of us did things we regret late in out twenties as you pointed out. But many of us also werent being paid millions of dollars to show up to work the next day with teammates that depend on us to be ready to go. Theres a responsibilty that comes with that. The day he signed a contract to become a proffesional hockey player, he also signed up for that responsibilty.
Absolutley nothing wrong with him going out and having a good time, but know your limits, pick your spots (certainly not playoff time) and surround yourself with people who will be quick to point this out to you.
Also, 3 years ago, it was reported his partying, along with Marchand became so out of control that Neely had to send the two of them home. it was talked about at length in here.
