There are so many unbelievable words… But that doesn’t mean I have a favorite word.
I’m very impatient. I am. That’s the bane of my game. I don’t think about what I’m going to do – I just go hit it, I don’t stop to wait and think. Costs me two shots a round.
Baseball has all the money.
I’m not done yet making people miserable. If they’re going to make me miserable, then I’m going to make them miserable.
You know what? I don’t care. I’m my own guy. I’m very secure with my sexuality. I can cry anytime I want.
Do I catch flak because I’m so much smarter than everyone else? I don’t know.
I’ve said for years I could never figure out why Calgary ever drafted me. When I got there, I think they had eight or nine right wingers already. These guys were premiere players. It’s not like they were extremely late in their careers, either.
If you’re going to play hockey now, you have to be able to play. If you have the ability to fight and play, you’re an unbelievable commodity. But if you can only fight, there might be six of those guys left in the league, and I can guarantee they’re going fast.
Because I don’t look like I’m skating around as hard as Bobby Bassen doesn’t mean my mind isn’t working twice as hard as Bobby’s mind. Just because I can’t fight like Kelly Chase doesn’t mean standing in front of the net getting cross-checked and slashed isn’t toughness as well.
You can’t get big in hockey. You need to be pliable… they’ve even taken fighting out of the game, so there’s no more of those big huge guys who just fight.
Sometimes guys need to cry. Some hockey players think they’re too tough to cry.
I’m realistic. And realistically, I’m not that type of player that earns that type of money any more. So I’d be willing to take a little cut to get a couple of extra years.
I’m scared to death to fly commercial… I have not flown commercial since 9/11.
I’m good at everything.
I was kind of smart enough when I was young, 14 or 15 years old, to realize that if you’re ever going to do anything and step out of the shadow of your own dad – not only in hockey, but in life itself – you’re going to have to learn you’re Brett and not ‘Bobby’s son.’
