Today on the show we’re replaying Jayson’s talk with Darren McCarty, former forward for the Detroit Red Wings. Darren talks about his days with the Red Wings and how he had to fight for his teammates and the entire city of Detroit when their backs were against the wall. He talks about the heated rivalry between Colorado and Detroit through the late 90’s and early 2000’s.

Jayson and Darren talk about how you could have all the talent in the world, but if you don’t have the need to win, or succeed, then that talent means nothing. Someone who is less talented but works harder is going to win out every single time in the long run.
