nhl- Roenick on TSN

JR appeared live on TSN (will open WMP video) to clarify his recent interview.
I also watched his interview with Dan Patrick on ESPN and it was a give and take situation. Roenick said he would like to apologize if he offended anyone with his language but would probably say the same thing if someone approached him on the street and started slamming the NHLPA.
JR mentioned he was a very passionate person, loves the fans and just wanted to make a point. Dan Patrick agreed with Jeremy that hockey players are the most friendly of modern day athletes, but did try to get JR to understand the part of the interview from the weekend that wasn't shown was not newsworthy, but what he did say about fans kissing his a--, was.
