NEWARK, N.J. --
One thing about being at the Player Media Tour is you better expect the unexpected.
For instance, while Sidney Crosby
and Steven Stamkos
were chatting about Gary Roberts
' famous training techniques outside the NBC studio at Prudential Center, a small vehicle drove by with Jason Spezza
in full uniform, skates included sitting on the flat bed.
Moments earlier, that same utility vehicle whizzed by with Andrew Ladd
on the back, in full uniform.
and Jonathan Toews
waltzed by that same area, both munching on apples -- their healthy lunch.
As I made my way over to the NHL Studios area, Tim Thomas
was going there from the other direction. Dion Phaneuf
walked by with Leafs PR guy Pat Park, and both were looking for directions to the NBC studio.
Just down the hall, boys.
Meanwhile, as I sit here and write this blog on my Blackberry, Avs d-man Erik Johnson
just came by to go in with NHL Studios to stand in front of a green screen and do promos for NHL Network.
To sum it up, these guys are everywhere today, so I better keep my eyes and ears open.
