Thomas Vokoun: Motivational Speaker
After losing the first two games of their first round NHL playoff series against the Detroit Red Wings in 2004, the Nashville Predators tied the series on home ice, prompting some premature comments from Predators goalie Thomas Vokoun. "Thomas Vokoun was shooting his mouth off in the press," Red Wings forward Brendan Shanahan remarked after clinching the series in game 6. "He's got a good future as a motivational speaker. Unfortunately, he motivated the wrong team."
