ESPN analyst Barry Melrose is one of hockey's most recognizable figures. We recently caught up to the 45-year-old former Los Angeles Kings coach and defenseman with three NHL teams to talk pucks and get some yuks.
Melrose: Might as well submit to the loss and take away a little dignity.
SI: Do you miss the glowing puck on Fox?
Melrose: Fox tried to be innovative and I like that, but the glowing puck was an embarrassment.
Melrose: Oh, man. I might have to go to the other place.
Melrose: That he was fired too early in his career.
SI: Who would win a slugfest between you and analyst Bill Clement?
