Note the following quotes from Inside Look with Brent Seabrook presented by Cadillac premiering Thursday, November 7 at 8:30 p.m. on Comcast SportsNet:
Seabrook on the early lean years with the Blackhawks:
“We talk about it with the young guys now. They do not know how it was back in the day. To be honest, I was 20, 21, 22-year-old kid and those years is when it was tough for the organization and tough for the fans as well. To be here and to be that young, I was excited to be in the NHL. The way I look at it now, it is a different perspective when you go into some buildings and the fans aren’t there, I do remember back at my first few years. I think it was perfect for me. I was excited to be in the NHL and I wasn’t worried about that stuff and I didn’t really know any better. It was a good time for me to come up and break in.”
Seabrook on his longtime friendship with teammate Duncan Keith:
“When they put us together in a condo, they told us to live together and I was 20. I had never played pro and had never lived without my mom. It was nice to have someone to hang with and help out. He had already been pro and that is when relationship started.
“We had fun together...it was interesting. He is an interesting guy and I love him to death. They put us together and with the friendship we already had, it blossomed from there. By being young and not having such a good team, we really learned to play against the top players in the league. The focus around Chicago was never really on us if we had a bad game and we were able to learn on the fly and make mistakes and that helped us out.”
Seabrook on his choice of winning a Stanley Cup with the Blackhawks or a Gold Medal with Team Canada:
“You can’t pick either one...I am lucky enough to win both and being able to win it in the same year is pretty special. You win a gold medal for your country where all your country thinks about is hockey...in your home country...in your hometown. All the boxes were checked for me. Then you win a Stanley cup for a team that has not won in 49 years on a team that had been together for 9-10 months....it is something you dream about every day…you dream about it is a kid. Both are equally as special and I will never forget those moments.”
Seabrook on the historic 17 seconds of last season’s Game 6 Stanley Cup Final at Boston:
“It still hasn’t sunk in how crazy that was. Obviously we know we won the Cup, but I don’t know if that will ever sink in how crazy that moment was. I don’t know if that will ever happen again. Bang-Bang, two goals in 17 seconds. It was pretty special.”
