I've always been a big fan of K-Ads. During his tenure here, he was one of my favorite players, and one of the most well-liked guys in the community. His little brawl with Bret Hedican notwithstanding, I get the impression that he was also well liked in the room.
There are a few things Adams says in this article, though, that rub me the wrong way. Please take the time to click through and read the short article.
The first thing is this little gem of a quote:
"It's really disappointing," said Adams, who tore both the ACL and MCL in his left knee in a victory over Columbus. "I've been having [more] fun with this team and this year than I've ever had in my career."
Winning the Cup wasn't enough "fun" for you, Kevyn? Jerk.
The second thing is this:
"The standard treatment for this is six months, but I've always been a quick healer, so I'm going to try and push the envelope a little and hopefully get back before then," said Adams, 33. "If you have a positive attitude and you realize that it's just a bump in the road, then you get back and you get through it quicker."
Jeez. We're not talking about a broken heart. We're talking about a significant knee injury. All the "positive attitude" in the world won't help the ligaments heal any quicker. If he tries to "push the envelope", he's risking putting not only his career, but his ability to walk in jeopardy. There's no sense in trying to be a hero. Remember, I also said this when Erik Cole returned for games 6 and 7 of the 2006 SCF.
Seriously, I wish the best for Kevyn, but he's kinda ruffled my feathers with this stuff.
