I'm surprised no one mentioned that during the interview. That's pretty cool though.

I really like watching these After Hours segments, but it would be nice if they spent a little less time reading out tweets that the interviewee has no response for. I know they like to put players on the spot a bit, but they know where the line is, they should stick to questions and comments that the player can actually respond to.

I agree with this completely. Twice Oake said, "you don't have to answer this, but...". Ok, if he isn't expected to answer it, then the question shouldn't be asked. Humour in interviews is awesome, but not when it's thrown in like that.

Also I wouldn't consider myself the best at reading people, but it seemed like the first injury question bothered Higgins off a bit. Perhaps at that point Oake could've taken a note to avoid the subject, or at least put a bit more of a positive spin on it rather than focusing on the injury itself.

It could just be me, but it seems like the guy has trouble gauging players' reactions to his questions, or at the very least he has trouble adjusting the interview accordingly.

When do you see booth clapping? what time?

You hear Booth clapping off camera at 3:16 :)

Higgins is one of the most consistent/hard working players on the team, got a pretty good shot too. Hope he stays healthy.

Scott Oak is a moron... end quote lol (that being said Higgins was good on After Hours... can't stand Johnson though... ever sense he tried to kill whichever Canadian player that was in the Juniors I've despised him, his a rotten poor sport far as I'm concerned but I guess he's matured up a lot since then, that was years ago after all, doesn't make me like him any more though even if he is a more well rounded guy).

Is nothing sacred? Whether his father speaks of 911? An NYC firefighter? He probably has PTSD and respiratory issues. And as if anyone would want to be reminded about staph infections on a continual basis.. All too personal IMO leave the man alone. And why state the obvious re gay advocacy or i hate to say 'tolerance'? CBC sux they could have chisen better topics. And yeah them man has a rockin bod but hes an athlete lets talk hockey!

I know its the playoffs, and everyone is hurt in some form or another, but c'mon, the guy essentially shrugs off a broken foot that he played on for a month.

Thanks CanucksHD for posting! He's my favourite current player (ha. obviously.) for many reasons - such a hard-working guy and vastly underrated. Glad to see he's getting some of the credit he deserves.
