NASHVILLE -- A quick trip to the dressing rooms after Saturday's All-Star Skills competition drew two insightful interviews with Ryan O'Reilly and John Scott.
O'Reilly talked about the byplay he had with Jaromir Jagr, his thoughts on the events, whether Jack Eichel could outskate Dylan Larkin, and a look-ahead to tomorrow.
Scott was blown away by the response he got from the Nashville crowd, from the time he arrived on the red carpet outside the building. He told me about his spin-o-rama move, about laughing at the boos of Patrick Kane and about how the NHL vetoed his wish to wear a St. John's AHL jersey.
And he said he was giving no Win One for the Gipper speech. Cracked Scott: "Who's the Gipper? Me?"
