Chicago Blackhawks' agitator Dan Carcillo can always be counted on for a good quote. Not because he's overly insightful, mind you, but because he speaks like he plays the game of hockey: without thinking.
Those aren't my words, those are his. "Thinking... is not that good in hockey, or thinking in general for me," Carcillo told a fan panel Saturday at the Blackhawks convention.
These comments came after Carcillo, whose 2011-12 season ended on a suspension and a knee injury following a dirty hit, admitted he finds he has to think more often now, a development he categorized as a bad thing.
