07:20 AM ET 04.30 | Call him Captain Serious and be prepared to deal with the consequences from the Blackhawks' preternaturally mature captain Jonathan Toews. Toews said he hoped he had mellowed enough to lose his nickname. Despite the central casting look and demeanor of a straight man in a comedy routine, he insisted Captain Serious was an incomplete portrayal. "I don't like it at all," he said. "Guys have known for a few years that's how they can push my buttons." Ryan Duncan, a teammate and roommate of Toews at the University of North Dakota, can vouch for him. "I've seen him watch 'Family Guy' and laugh his face off," Duncan said. "With age, he's loosened up, and that's a good thing."

Pay no attention to any of that ****. Just do your talking on the ice. Nothing else matters.

He still likes to play "this little piggy."

He laughs his face off at Family Guy? Thank God the NY Times is around digging through the record to tell us stuff like this. I'll bet no other paper's sports department can uncover sizzling news like that. A Pulitzer is coming. I can smell it. And I do mean smell.

Actually I like Family Guy too. As for that "smell" remark.............it's beneath me to respond. Watch tonight's game and if the Kings lose I will apologize publicly to you. Fortunately, that's about as likely as a Cup Parade in Toronto. (Sorry DL but my 24 hours of being polite is over, plus your position as Caps spokesman is hereby cancelled). I told you I have all the qualities of a dog except loyalty.

Would he rather borrow one or two of Kane's?.....I didn't think so.
