TSN.ca did a Q&A with Edmonton forward Patrick O’Sullivan, mostly to help promote the “Movember” charity event for men’s health, but later in the interview, O’Sullivan was asked what he felt was the most surprising thing about playing for a Canadian team. Not exactly complimentary toward L.A.
O’Sullivan said, “It’s definitely different coming from L.A. where nobody cared and after the game we’d have two people in the room waiting to talk to us. I didn’t know what to expect when I was traded and I didn’t know how I was going to like it. But to me, I think it’s great. You want to play somewhere where hockey is important. It’s everything and more that I thought it would be. The games are sold out and it’s a fun building to play in. Outside of the weather, it’s a great city. In my opinion if you want to live somewhere warm, you can do it when you’re done playing.”
