John Michael Liles:
â€¢ Block more shots with my face so the guys stop teasing me about being a bit of a pretty boy.
â€¢ Study a successful veteran, like JM Liles, and try emulate what he does
â€¢ Try to fit in with my teammates, and defensive partners, by doing what they do.
â€¢ Stop breaking my hand on other players faces.
â€¢ Remember to collect royalties from Old Spice for inspiring those commercials.
â€¢ Seriously Ladies, Look at your man, now look at me. Your man can be the man who smells like me
â€¢ Show those whippersnappers Stastny and Duchene how itâ€™s done by walzing to Nach Tanz after wins
â€¢ Take out the trash more often
â€¢ Retweet LouisCK, not Dane Cook (If itâ€™s not on there, it should be)
â€¢ My eyes can deceive me, donâ€™t trust them
â€¢ Use the Force
â€¢ Practice the Jedi Mind trick that gives him the ability to make weak minded defensemen throw the puck into their own net.
â€¢ Stay up past 10:30 some night.
â€¢ Maybe this will be the year I finally break my superstition of breaking a mirror on the ladder Iâ€™m walking under before every game.
â€¢ Come up with some catchy slogan for next season. Feel the A-xcitement. Wait, thatâ€™s terrible. Feel the A-xcitement! Ahh, another successful year in the books.
â€¢ Find a way to regain my focus. Start with the Dallas Stars Ice Girls calender, then move on to the Blackhawks, Hurricanes, and, for nostalgiaâ€™s sake, the Panthers.
â€¢ Have an intern comb the Pepsi center after every game looking for any change that fans may have dropped.
