If a co-worker is a team player on the ice, they're more than likely a team player in the office. We get a bad rap for being intense sports fans. The excitement levels are exponential.

Orest would take Crosby on his team any time. He would want there to be penalties at beginning of new season. He wants to see the best teams and for them to get rid of the instigation penalty.
